There are two washrooms stalls with grab bars, one in each washroom; the doors to these stalls are 30” and they are 42” wide. Shows at this venue are sober shows—no BYOB, and no alcohol will be sold at the venue.

There are no stairs or steps in the entrance. The (gender-neutral) washroom has a narrow entrance. An accessible washroom is located in a pub less than half a block away and we talking to the owners to see if Art Bank attendees can make use of it at no charge during the festival.

There is one gender-neutral washroom.

This show here is taking place outdoors in a grassy backyard which can be approached from a paved alley way. The gender-neutral washroom inside the house must be reached through two flights of stairs. We are currently sourcing a nearby accessible washroom option.
877 E HASTINGS

This is a house venue with approximately 20 steps leading up into the house. There is a gender-neutral washroom located up another flight of stairs.
STRATHCONA SKATE PARK
This show takes place in a park outside which may be approached from a concrete gradient pathway approximately five feet wide. There are ‘male’ and ‘female’ labled washrooms on site with a 1/2 foot step for the entrance and small cubicles. Regrettably Shout Back coordinators were not successful in securing a wheelchair accessible Porto-Potty for this event. We are currently sourcing another washroom option for this event, but something close by may not be available. We apologize for this exclusion.
FOR ALL VENUES:
All shows are all ages!
We are working on a safer spaces team to be present at as many shows as possible. This team will have identifying arm bands, will be sober, and will be accountable as active listeners and defusing unsafe situations.
We request a $5 donation or the presentation of a $20 festival pass at each music show and workshop. However no one will be turned away for lack of funds at either shows or workshops.
All shows at Astorino’s are sober shows, however other show venues may have alchohol for sale at them.
All venues are close to public transportation. Please message us for directions to specific venues.
Free childcare is available upon request for any of the shows and workshops.
Please refrain from wearing strong scents.
We are trying our best to increase the accessibility of this festival and we are open to suggestions and constructive feedback!
