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
- Producing and sharing free and accessible media and learning resources
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.
Venue specific access information
ONCA has two venues, our gallery in central Brighton and the ONCA Barge at Brighton Marina. Please click the links below to find out more about how to access these venues and what facilities they have.
General access information
Some events at ONCA are BSL interpreted and BSL users can request that an event be interpreted. This should be done via email a month in advance. We also periodically run British Sign Language (BSL) Courses with teachers Louise Gibson & Kwame Afrik.
Free tickets are always available for Personal Assistants – please let us know in advance if possible if you need a PA ticket. Assistance dogs on leads are welcome.
We also aim to record and transcribe as many of our programmed events as possible. These recordings can be found on our News & Resources page.
When we are able to, we offer concessions tickets for unemployed, low-waged, senior members and marginalised groups.
We have a simple screen reader-friendly version of our website which you can access by clicking on the eye symbol on the right hand side of the screen.
If you have specific access requirements that you would like to arrange, please complete our online Accessibility Request form below. Once we have received your request we will aim to get back to as soon as possible. If you require any assistance with filling out this form please feel free to ask us anything via email or call 01273 607101.
We are always open to feedback and new suggestions, so please contact us if you have any comments by emailing us or calling us on 01273 607101.
