Accessibility Notes



The Anna Leonowens Gallery is located in a historic building built in 1860. Although charming, it’s historical architecture is problematic.

There is metered parking surrounding the NSCAD campus and the gallery is a short walk to several underground parking garages. The Gallery is located in a historic courtyard where the centre of the courtyard is cobblestone. The perimeter is a brick walkway.

The main entrance has one step to enter. During the opening reception and artist talk, a portable wheelchair ramp will be installed. To access the ramp during regular opening hours, please ring the doorbell to the left of the entrance and a staff person will assist you immediately. Once inside, you will be able to access Gallery 1 and 2. Gallery 3 is located down two half flights of stairs in an “L” shape. To avoid using the stairs and access Gallery 3, gallery staff will accompany you outside to the Gallery 3 entrance on Hollis street, a 30 sec walk from the main door.

Two washrooms are located at the back of the gallery, up a flight of stairs through a small hall and then down a second flight of stairs. They are both gender neutral. Unfortunately the gallery does not have wheelchair accessible washrooms on site but gallery staff can assist in taking you to the closest wheelchair washroom on campus.

For the duration of "Videlicet," Gallery 2 will be laid out in an accessible manner. Seating will be available in the gallery, described audio will accompany the works, and text panels will be formatted in clear print.
