Accessibility at SNAP

Accessibility at SNAP – Printshop and Gallery

Entrances: Our gallery entrances are 2 steps above ground level, and the south Gallery door at the front has a short ramp. The back Printshop door is at ground level. The doors are all manual doors – during regular hours, please call 780-423-1492 and one of our staff can help open the door. Our facilities are all on the ground floor of the building with no steps between any of the areas.

Parking: 2 hour parking is available in front of the SNAP building. Limited parking is also available in the alleyway behind SNAP. 

Public transport: ETS bus route stops that are closest to SNAP’s location are stop numbers 1825, 1635, 1671, and 1905.

Washrooms: SNAP has four single-user bathrooms, all with manual doors that lock. One wheelchair accessible bathroom is available which is equipped with a grab bar. There are hand dryers in each bathroom. 

Seating and Priority areas: As the floorplan of the gallery changes with each new exhibition, there is no consistent seating plan available for the gallery area. Portable seating can be arranged if needed using folding chairs. Stools and other moveable chairs are available in the printshop area during events based on event capacity.

ASL and transcription: Live transcriptions are available on all zoom events. Videos played during in person live events will be shown with captions. If there are any other accommodations that you require to be able to attend a SNAP event or workshop, please don’t hesitate to reach out to [email protected]

Support persons: People with disabilities are welcome to bring one support person to events or workshops free of charge. Accessibility animals are welcome.

COVID-19: As of June 14, 2022, masks are no longer required within Alberta. However to protect each other and welcome all members of our community, we please ask that you continue to wear your mask when attending SNAP. Anti-bacterial wiping of high touch surfaces is done weekly and hand sanitizer and masks are available on site.

If any other accommodations can be made to make our community space more accessible for you or others, please contact Myken McDowell, our Printshop and Programs Coordinator at [email protected] with any inquiries.
