ACCESSIBILITY OVERVIEW

The Festival of Live Digital Arts is committed to improving accessible opportunities for all people to participate in a variety of events and performances at the festival. American Sign Language interpretation, transcription, audio description and guide services will be offered for several components of the festival. Some performances are designated Relaxed Environments to welcome anyone who may not feel comfortable or able to participate because of conventional audience etiquette, expectations and participation restrictions. Personal support workers and service animals are welcome at all events and performances. For detailed access information or to discuss an individual access plan or need, please contact producer Madison Lymer at producer@spiderwebshow.ca.

Access Protocols for The StartUp Series:

Volunteer Sighted Guides:

Volunteer festival guides can be available to you for specific activities. They will assist with traversing around the venues and performances if you require some sighted support. Please contact Clayton if you would like some volunteer support.

Familiarization Visits:

We invite you to come see the venues prior to attending events if you like. Specific times can be made available in early June. Please contact us to schedule a specific visit.
