Access & Facilities

ONCA strives to be an accessible and inclusive organisation where everybody is welcome, regardless of age, ability, gender or background.

Accessibility & Inclusion at ONCA

At ONCA, we try to cater for everybody’s access and participation needs by:

  • Hosting events tailored to the needs of participants of a wide range of ages and abilities
  • Encouraging and working with exhibiting artists and partners to make their projects as inclusive and accessible as possible
  • Encouraging practitioners to offer concessions tickets for unemployed, low-waged, senior members and marginalised groups

We ask that all hirers of the venue adhere to ONCA’s policies and guidance on accessibility, diversity and inclusion. For more information, please read our Diversity & Inclusion Policy below.

The main part of the gallery is wheelchair accessible but the toilet and kitchen is up five stairs.


We have a small toilet inside the gallery which is up five steps. There are accessible toilets close by, at The Yellow Book bar and North Laine pub.

Audio Recording & Transcription

We aim to record and transcribe as many of our programmed events as possible. These recordings can be found on Our Stories page.

When we are able to, we offer concessions tickets for unemployed, low-waged, senior members and marginalised groups.
