Join us to think through the present state of accessible in Victoria arts community. What barriers have you found in showing, selling, or performing your work in Victoria? Are these barriers the same in other Canadian cities you have lived or worked in, or are they unique to Victoria? What current individual and organizational initiatives have been occurring in Victoria that have been working?
In creating a new program around theme of accessibility and art, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is looking for discussion and feedback in creating barrier-free projects centering on artists and individuals from the disabled, IBPOC, LGBTQ2+, and low-income communities. While conversation is encouraged, all are welcomed to sit in.
The conversation will feature Victoria-based artists Kate Collie and Joanne Cuffe to hear about their artistic practices as well as thoughts and lived experiences around the current state of accessibility.
To make this event as accessible as possible, the AGGV will be offering the following services:
-ASL Interpreter (must be requested by May 1)
-Transcription (offered about 2 weeks after the live webinar)
-Recording available send around two weeks after the workshop (this video recording will only be available to participants and will not be used for social media unless specifically email requested later by the Art Gallery)
The AGGV understands access needs are different for everyone, and that these needs can also change and be different every day. To make a specific request, please email Regan Shrumm, Assistant Curator at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 250-896-8266.
