Improving Venue Accessibility - The Al Green Theatre

Presenter: Angie Stillitano, Director of Leadership Development & Organizational Transformation, and Peter Fehlhaber, Manager of Bookings & Theatre

When: Wednesday, March 25, 2020.

Cost: FREE!

As part of the Creative Space Case Studies Webinar Series, join the MNJCC's Manager of Bookings & Theatre, Peter Fehlhaber, and the Director of Leadership Development & Organizational Transformation, Angie Stillitano, as they discuss the history of downtown Toronto’s Al Green Theatre and how it has been transformed into a more accessible performance and presentation space.

A culture and commitment to accessibility and inclusion served as the foundation that led to hosting relaxed performances, working with clients to increase the accessibility of their events, and ultimately an accessible upgrade to the facility. Peter and Angie will discuss their user-focused approach with detailed examples of how the Al Green Theatre made their space and operations more accessible.
