Accessibility

Granting universal accessibility to the conference is one of our main goals. In this section we summarize the previsions taken to ensure that every attendant will enjoy the conference at its fullest. If your particular situation is not listed here, if you would like to request further assistance and/or would like to reserve a particular seat due to below mentioned or other reasons, please write us as soon as possible in the email address artandactivismcon@gmail.com.

 

Mobility  All roads and pathways from Leiden Centraal station to the Volkenkunde Museum are a priori accessible. Both entrances have no stairs and are located at ground level. Additionally, elevators are available in the station as well as the Museum. In the street, all sidewalks have lower parts through which bicycles, wheelchairs, mobility scooters, and baby and infant trolleys can pass through. Personal mobility assistants can be hired if necessary. If this is your case, please contact us with at least one month notice in order to plan this.

Audio – Sign language interpreters and translators can be requested with at least one-month notice. If you need an interpreter, please contact us as soon as possible in order to find professionals working in your chosen language (ASL, NGT, BSL…). Additionally, there will be a reserved space for attendants who need to sit closer due to hearing impediments.

Visual – There will be a reserved space for attendants who need to sit closer due to visual impediments. If you need assistance getting to the venue, please let us know by contacting us on our email address with at least one month notice.

Cognitive – Cognitive accessibility previsions vary from one individual to another. Please contact us with at least one month notice in case this is applicable to you and we will treat your situation personally.
