“Movement is fo Every Body” ASL interpreters provided

My name is Leah, and I’m the new Program Manager here at ArtStarts, located on Richards and Robson in downtown Vancouver. We have just installed a new exhibition called “Movement is for Every Body” that highlights work created by B.C. student artists on accessibility in the dance world. The exhibition will launch on August 11th with a party for families and young people; we are providing ASL interpretation for this event and so I wanted to reach out to make sure that your organization was invited. From 11am – 12pm, we’ll be hosting a drop-in art activity for young people ages 12 and under and their families. From 12:30pm – 1pm, staff will share a few words about the exhibit and encourage visitors to explore the gallery and share some food!  This event and all our programming at ArtStarts is by-donation; it would be wonderful if you and your Deaf and/or Hard of Hearing families are available to join us! I will also have an ASL vlog available shortly if that would be useful to spread the word to your community. 

If members of your network are interested, could I trouble them to RSVP to leah@artstarts.com indicating number of Deaf or Hard of Hearing individuals who will attend by Monday, August 6th? That will help me ensure we have the correct number of interpreters on-site and can meet any other access needs on site. ArtStarts is fully wheelchair accessible, though our lift cannot accommodate an adult in an electric scooter. If this event isn’t a possibility, we will be expanding ASL interpretation to our regular drop-in programming for families on Saturdays in the fall, and I’ll be happy to get that information to you once it’s available. 

Take good care, and don’t hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions!All best,

Leah
