Accessibility & BSL

ONCA strives to be an accessible and inclusive organisation. Everybody is welcome, regardless of age, ability, gender or background. We try to cater for everybody’s access and participation needs: your input and ideas are warmly welcomed. 

We love this Shape Arts guide to accessible curating.

Accessibility at events

    • Space with clear sightlines is reserved for Deaf and disabled visitors and their companions at all gallery events
    • Free tickets are always available for Personal Assistants
    • Some events are BSL interpreted – these are advertised in advance on our website. Also events can be BSL interpreted upon request – please email us for this service
  • We have ear defenders for children and adults available for use upon request

Accessibility in our projects

    • We support the creation of new work by artists who face barriers to inclusion with projects, commissions and space
    • We host and devise events tailored to the needs of participants of a wide range of ages and abilities
    • We encourage and work with exhibiting artists and partners to make their projects as inclusive and accessible as possible
  • We ask that all hirers of the venue adhere to ONCA’s policies on inclusion

We are open to suggestions and value all your ideas, suggestions and feedback.
