Programming for Group 1 (Youth 13-19) will be held in a fully accessible space, including bathrooms. We are making every effort to host Group 2 (Youth 20-29) in a fully accessible space as well. We will definitely be hosting the program launch in a fully accessible space.
We are committed to having locations with gender neutral washrooms for both programs – will definitely have single stall washrooms. We are also making every effort to host the launch at a space with gender neutral or single stall washrooms as well.
In consideration of participants, facilitators and artists who are sensitive to chemicals in fragrances, we are asking you to help us in creating a fragrance-free space. While we cannot guarantee a fragrance-free space, all attendees, facilitators, and artists will be asked to refrain from wearing scented products like perfume, cologne and scented lotions. This great resource has information on how to be fragrance-free.
We will have food and beverages at all the sessions for each program and the launch. All food for the programs will be vegetarian and we will strive to focus on healthy food options. If you have any food allergies, please let us know in the application so we can make sure that we have food that is not prepared with those ingredients. Food at the launch will have nut-free, gluten-free and vegan options.
TTC tokens/tickets will be available for youth for each session of the program.
There is no cost to participate in the program; however, we recognize that there may be other financial barriers in participation. While the program has a limited budget, please contact us and we will try to find ways for you to be able to participate.
Facilitation for the Q? Y Art? Project will be primarily in English; we recognize that this may act as a barrier in participation for individuals. In an attempt to bridge some of the language gaps, the members and coordinator of Q? Y Art? speak French, Hindi and Punjabi and will be available before, during and after the sessions.
Unfortunately, due to the limited resources of the project, we recognize that there are still barriers to participation that we are not able to accommodate some of which include ASL interpretation, attendant services and childcare subsidies.
The organizers of Q? Y Art? would like to make participation in the program as accessible as possible for folks with disAbilities or any other factors that might result in exclusion. If there are any needs that we haven’t addressed, we urge you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (416) 599-2727 ext. 230 and we will try our best to make it possible for you to participate in the program!
