Accessibility

Artspace is part of a Learning Community of eleven arts organizations that collaborate to advocate for and improve access to the arts for people with disabilities. This collective is funded in part by the City of Raleigh Arts Commission and the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County.

Increasing accessibility and broadening access to the arts is at the core of our mission; we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the creative process. Everyone is welcome at Artspace. 

  • Our galleries, classroom, studios, and all public areas are fully handicapped accessible.
  • We have a wheelchair on-site for anyone who requires it and all restrooms accommodate people with disabilities.
  • All galleries and studios have signage, including Braille lettering, for people who are blind or have low vision.
  • Our wayfinding signage uses large font, high contrast, and a flat finish for persons with low vision.
  • Through a partnership with the Governor Morehead School for the Blind, all exhibition brochures are available in Braille and large print.
  • Our educational programs are accessible to those with disabilities and arrangements can be made to accommodate many differing needs through a partnership with Arts Access.
  • We are happy to provide audio tours and/or ASL interpretation for our exhibitions and special events. If possible, please submit your request two weeks in advance.
  • In our marketing efforts, we emphasize the facility’s accessibility to encourage those with special needs to become a part of our programming.

If you have an accommodation you would like to request for an upcoming program or exhibition, have a suggestion about our accessibility, or if you have a question about our accessibility, please contact Megan Sullivan, Operations and Finance Manager at 919.821.2787 or msullivan@artspacenc.org.
