Accessibility

The Arts Club takes great pride in creating a barrier-free environment for all its patrons, staff, artists, volunteers, and third-party contractors. We want to provide a place where all people feel welcome and can maintain their independence and their dignity.

A stronghold of our belief and organizational culture is that all people have equal access to employment, our productions, our programs, and any other opportunities at the Arts Club. The Arts Club also desires to see a reflection of the diverse disability community in everything that we do.

Our ultimate goal is to have a completely barrier-free environment, and we continue to strive to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities in a timely and effective manner.

Accessibility is a continuum and an ongoing process here at the Arts Club, and we continue to make changes to our physical design, internal systems, and staff/volunteer training to increase our level of accessibility and inclusivity. We sincerely hope that you will be patient with us and support our efforts by providing feedback about your experience.

Our Accessibility Coordinator, Amy Amantea, will be happy to have a conversation with you about your access needs, and how they may be addressed in both the Arts Club's short-term and long-term strategic goals. Amy can be reached at aamantea@artsclub.com.
