Design for Public Spaces Advanced: How Can Creative Spaces Go Beyond the Standard?

Host: Thea Kurdi, Vice President with DesignABLE Environments

Presenters: Dave Hollands, Head, ROM Creative & Lorene Casiez, Accessibility and Wellness Practice Lead
with Human Space

When: Tuesday, March 12, 2019

While creative spaces need to meet requirements through the AODA/Design for Public Spaces Standard, there are many ways arts organizations can go beyond legislation. In this webinar, presenters will discuss how the design of spaces can incite a desire for community engagement through accessibility. Being an accessible space encompasses more than physical aspects. Presenters will explore how spaces can take into consideration the experience of artists who identify as having a disability and how a space can engage all individuals.

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, andAsset 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.
