Art House Productions is committed to accessibility and inclusivity in all the public programming presented by our organization. Art House Productions produces work with a shrewd sense of social responsibility and challenges the idea of "universal" mind and "universal" body in each artistic endeavor.
Disability is the only marginalized community that intersects gender, race, class, and religion. Art House Productions is proud to have an Accessibility Committee to assist with staff training and programming designed for patrons and artists with disabilities.
Each June, we present ACCESS JC Fridays, which focuses on inclusion and accessibility. Art House encourages participating venues to present work from artists with disabilities and/or work that celebrates disability in any of its many forms. We also encourage venue partners to make their physical space accessible to all, including large print materials, ASL interpretation, Captioning, and sensory tours.
In 2021, Art House was honored by the New Jersey Cultural Access Network with the Leadership Award.
In 2022, Art House will move into our permanent location, a fully ADA accessible performing & visual arts center at The Hendrix (184 Morgan Street) in Jersey City.
For more information or to join the Access Committee, please contact Rachel Handler at email@example.com.
