We are aware that some of our website is not yet fully accessible. We endeavour to fix this by adding alt tags to all of our website images, starting with our most visited pages first and then working backwards by date of upload. This will take some time due to the amount of images on our website but we aim to work on this weekly until it is complete.
We work with our guest practitioners and Associate artists to make our website text easy to understand, however, if you need information from this website in a different format such as an easy read PDF, or if you think there is more we should be doing or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, please email our Communications and Access Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Accessibility’ in the subject line and we will do our best to support you.
Our building is currently accessible by stairs only and we have no accessible toilets, but we are working hard to turn the building into a fully accessible space. In the meantime, we are committed to providing alternative spatial solutions to enable full participation of our programmes. All of our toilets (one on each floor) are gender neutral, and due to the current Covid-19 pandemic we have multiple hand-sanitising stations throughout the building.
We welcome assistance-dogs but we request that, where possible, you let us know in advance of your visit; we are a multi-use educational space and may have learners on site with phobias or allergies. All animals must be kept under supervision at all times.
Please don’t hesitate to call or email us for more information or to arrange a visit.
Earplugs and stim toys are available on site and we do our best to give suitable warning about events that may cause discomfort for those with sensory processing issues.
Some of our events (exhibitions in particular) can be crowded and noisy. It is up to the individual to best judge the suitability of these events to their specific needs, but we are happy to discuss this with you. Where possible, we try to arrange ‘extra-accessible’ days for our longer exhibitions. On these days we filter lighting, lower sound levels, limit the number of people within spaces and have extra invigilators throughout the building.
