Accessing the Arts

COVID-19 Notice: Due to COVID-19 and social distancing requirements, events taking place in physical venues have been cancelled or postponed for the foreseeable future. If you’re unsure of the status of a future event, please verify with the event host. You can browse events taking place online, or submit your online events to be added to the Accessing the Arts listing or subscribe to our newsletter, Connector, to receive events and opportunities by email.


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!

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.
