BAX is on the second and third floors of the building with stairwells that extend from the ground floor entrance to the building’s third floor. There is no elevator or ramp at this time. BAX is actively working on an extensive accessibility initiative and is committed to implementing ADA-compliant solutions that open the spaces to all.
BAX currently forefronts universal design principles in our ongoing digital and communication strategies. In addition, we provide ASL, Alt-text and CART or auto transcriptions upon request. The stairs are equipped with reflective tape for low-vision patrons and we provide fidgets, earplugs and other assistive devices for artists and students who request.
The education methodology for BAX’s youth programming was designed in partnership with disabled artists and disability specialists to prioritize equitable and accessible strategies towards engaging learners with all kinds of abilities. In addition, BAX teaching artists participate in regular professional development training and faculty discussions to understand and conceive of antiracist curriculum and practice teaching and learning facilitation strategies. Moreover, we believe in collective caretaking in which we appeal to the whole child as well as their family to develop programming that truly meets the needs and experiences of individuals while also enriching our collective community.
