Feminist Art Conference (FAC) is a 100% volunteer-based organization in Toronto that brings together artists, academics, and activists to consider feminist issues through art.
Tickets are available for purchase on a sliding scale to ensure people from all economic backgrounds can attend the conference. For this pricing system to support the community, we ask that you select the ticket price that is most appropriate for yourself.
Volunteer - If you are interested in volunteering with us email: email@example.com
ASL will be provided. If you are a community member who requires ASL, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can arrange for full support.
OCADU is fully wheelchair accessible.
We are asking attendees to attend FAC with a scent-free policy in mind. However, for folks who have MCS, OCADU is an art college and as such the environment will have a variety of chemical triggers in the building.
A quiet art making room will be available for anyone needing a break.
Gender neutral bathrooms will be clearly marked.
Any personal support worker who is working will receive free admission.
The closest accessible subway station to OCADU is Osgoode Station (more detailed directions are below in the FAQ).
