Accessibility Information for the McClure Gallery at the The Visual Arts Centre
We see accessibility as contextual, varied and dynamic and something that concerns everyone that interacts with the McClure Gallery. We want to make our programming is as accessible as possible, so please be in touch if you have accessibility needs not already covered. We are happy to discuss and work with you to provide an alternative.
- The McClure Gallery is located on the ground floor of The Visual Arts Centre, located on Victoria Avenue in the Westmount neighborhood of Montreal. There is a ramp to enter the gallery, or you may use the stairs (there is one stair). The front door has a slop (light inclination). There is an automatic door opener. There is one glass door to get into the gallery. A staff member can assist you with the door.
- The McClure Gallery is located 650m from the Vendome metro and commuter train station, as well as near the 24, 63, 104, and 138 bus routes. Vendome metro and commuter train station has a elevator. The STM offers Paratransit service on demand. For information on schedules and fares please consult www.stm.info.
- There is paid on-street parking in the surrounding area. Parking can be quite difficult, especially in the winter. There is no designated accessible parking spot located near the gallery.
- We invite everyone and anyone to come as they are to enjoy our exhibitions and programming. Come as you are, and do what you need to feel comfortable here in a way that gives space for yourself, and doesn’t negatively impact others’ well-being. If you need to move around, twitch, pace, or not make eye contact, know that staff welcomes you to do that.
- We ask all visitors to come with low-scent in order to allow people with chemical sensitivities to be able to share the environment.
- We can provide chairs with backs on request during gallery opening hours and events.
- There is one gender-neutral washroom in the gallery. The bathroom is accessible to persons using a wheelchair.
- Children are welcome to attend all programming, unless otherwise stated. Child friendly art activities can be made available upon request for certain events. We can provide a private space to breastfeed or to pump, if needed, and a changing space.
- For lighting, the gallery is equipped with LED track lighting which can be dimmed to your preference upon request during gallery opening hours.
- We ask visitors to avoid using flash or taking photographs of other visitors without their permission.
- The language of all programming will be noted on our website and social media. Exhibition texts are always available in English and French. Live and relazed translation is always offered on demand.
