Accessibility Guide for ‘Printmaking from the Archive: Ben Blount & Dino Robinson in Conversation’
The following is accessibility information for Printmaking from the Archive: Ben Blount & Dino Robinson in Conversation at MAKE letterpress studio + retail shop + gallery (1123 Florence Ave., Evanston) on Sunday, February 4, 2024, 2pm CST. If you have accessibility questions or requests, please contact us at email@example.com.
Please note that this event is taking place in-person at MAKE letterpress studio + retail shop + gallery, which is the studio of artist Ben Blount. This is a more intimate, active, and intricate space, with artist materials, tables, equipment throughout, therefore, it might be a more complicated space for our friends, supporters and attendees with disabilities. To speak directly with the Sixty team about accessibility and questions you have for this event, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Captions + ASL Interpretation
Although we like to automatically offer ASL and Live CART (Communication Access Real-time Translation) at our events, for this event we will secure these services only by request. We are happy to provide ASL Interpretation and Live CART (Communication Access Real-time Translation) at the request of any attendees. Please contact us at email@example.com to make a request. When ASL interpretation or Live CART is requested and offered, an area will be marked and reserved for those who need unobstructed access to these services.
Audio + Sound
Due to the size of the space, microphones and a PA system will not be used during the event. For those needing closer access to the speakers during the event, we will work with you to prioritize the best location for you to hear and access the speakers during the event.
Masks will be required and we will provide free masks for those who don’t have one. While food and drinks will be served, we ask that attendees wear their mask when not eating or drinking.
Entrances + Restrooms
MAKE Letterpress Studio is a street-level, storefront studio space in a residential area. The front entrance consists of a door that is 32″ wide and a door that opens inward.
MAKE has one gender neutral, single user restroom, but the entrance is only 20″ wide, therefore not wheelchair accessible.
The reading and discussion will take place in the artist’s studio space. Some chairs will be available for those who need them, but much of the event will consist of speakers and attendees walking and moving around the studio. Accessibility seating will be marked and reserved for those who need easy and unobstructed access to a seating while in the space. Also, if ASL interpreters are requested for the event, there will be an area marked and reserved for those attendees. The event takes place in the afternoon, so the space will likely be lighted with a combination of natural light and fluorescent, track lighting.
We also welcome you to make yourself comfortable in the space–feel free to move around, stand, sit, grab snacks, and visit the restroom as needed. If you need to step out of the space to take a break for any reason, you can step outside of the studio, so dress accordingly!
