Making It Easier to Access the Arts

Earlier this month, the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center was presented with the Celebrating Abilities Award for Organizational Excellence. It was an honor to be recognized, and it shows what an impact the Center’s accessibility committee is making. 

In just the last year, the committee has overseen the installation of hearing loop capabilities in the Centers Kimberly-Clark Theater and ticket office lobby to assist patrons who are hard of hearing. It’s also played a pivotal role in continuing the Centers open captioning services with a grant fromOctoberfest.

The Fox Cities P.A.C. is not alone in striving to make the arts accessible to all. The Theatre Development Fund works with theaters in New York and throughout the country to promote awareness and action. Just check out their latest work to make Disney’s The Lion King accessible to autistic children and their families.

The Center offers a variety of services to ensure the arts are accessible for all. From accessible seating on all levels and at all prices points to complimentary valet parking for patrons displaying a valid disabled license plate or tag, and American Sign Language interpretation upon request, the arts are becoming more accessible every day.
