Accessing the Arts

Welcome! Accessing the Arts is a pilot initiative that is working towards becoming your go-to source for information about accessible arts and culture. Our goal is to promote accessibility in the arts and showcase how communities are reshaping the arts sector. We believe that art is for everyone!

If you are interested in posting your event, send us a message! If you would like to get involved and receive news and updates about this initiative, join our mailing list.

Note: We acknowledge that inclusion in the arts relies upon listening, communication, and being responsive. We also acknowledge that lived experiences of exclusion, discrimination and oppression are real and unique to each individual. For these reasons, and because we do not organize the events we list, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of information provided, nor can we guarantee the quality of accessibility at events. Our goal is to make accessibility in the arts easy to find, and to provide you with as much information as possible, so that you, the user, can make informed choices based on your needs. Our hope is that, in doing this, we can put inclusion at the forefront of Canada’s arts sector.
