Accessibility information

I wrote in the original event description that, as an organisation, we are working to improve our accessibility considerations and documentation. Due to this unexpected location change, we are now in an older building in Gastown that is at the top of a tall flight of stairs and is not nearly as accessible.

I sincerely apologize for this, and if you or one of your guests will have difficulty attending because of this change, please get in touch with me: In addition, we will to be back at a location with elevators for our next event in May, and can I pre-reserve a spot for you at that event.

If you require other accessibility-related measures (ex. sign language interpretation, captioning, etc.) please contact
