Designing a creative space can involve a number of decision makers, including organizational leadership, funders, architects, contractors, etc… all who are key players behind a capital project. But how are project teams including accessibility into the design of space? In this webinar, presenters will share best practices for building accessibility into your project from the start, including working with accessibility consultants, users of the space and creating an accessibility advisory committee.

This webinar will be delivered with closed captioning. A transcript and a recording will be available after the live session. This webinar will be delivered through Adobe Connect. If you require a dial in conference line or additional accommodations to participate, please contact

ArtsBuild Ontario is proud to present The Learning Series, a collection of learning opportunities for arts facilities around ABOs core programs, including SpaceFinder, the Creative Spaces Mentoring Network, and Asset Planner for the Arts.

ABO would like to thank its accessibility advisory committee for informing the webinar topics, speakers and upcoming toolkit for creative spaces in Ontario. This project is supported by the Government of Ontario.
