Accessibility

The Union for Contemporary Art is committed to removing barriers to the arts by providing programs, facilities, and services that are accessible to everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual identity, income level, age, physicality, or disability.

Because service to our community sits at the core of The Union’s mission and values, supporting the diverse needs of our stakeholders is central to our efforts at fostering a culture of equity and inclusion.

If you are planning a visit, and have any questions or needs, we encourage you to communicate with us in advance. Union staff will make accommodations, to the extent possible, to ensure that our programs and building are welcoming and supportive for all.

We are currently in the process of a thorough examination of accessibility within our organization, programming, events, and space. Our goals include, but are not limited to:

  • Forming an accessibility advisory committee
  • Hiring an accessibility consultant
  • Conducting an accessibility audit of our facilities, programming, processes, and communications
  • Identifying areas where improvement is needed, and implementing changes
  • Developing a detailed and comprehensive Union Accessibility Guide, made available on our website
  • Filming a video walk-through of our building, exterior paths of travel, and program areas
  • Continually pursuing opportunities to make all aspects of our work and programming fully open and accessible to all

Realizing that accessibility is an ongoing process, we welcome any constructive feedback or suggestions in order to create a space that is more inclusive.

Please direct any questions, suggestions, or accessibility accommodation requests to The Union’s Events + Project Manager, Kat Fackler (kat@u-ca.org).
