WISE Hall Accessibility:

The WISE hall is partially wheelchair-accessible, through the floor-level rear entrance. Come to the front door, and at the bottom of the stairs, ring the special doorbell we’ve rigged up for folks who can’t do the stairs! Someone will come out and arrange to let you in the level-ground back door entrance.

We’ll have some volunteer runner-people to help folks with physical disabilities carry bags to and from cars and help with any scene set-up. Please ask as you come in. If you have other accessibility concerns, please contact us and we’ll help with arrangements.

 

Link to The Full Access Audit:
The WISE is a local mainstay for a wide variety of events, including concerts, dances, rehearsals, receptions, film shoots, meetings, play parties, weddings, classes and seminars. After going through some renovations, while it is not fully wheelchair accessible (neither the stage nor the current “men’s” washroom is wheelchair accessible, folks using wheelchairs must enter and exit via the rear door with assistance, it is only possible to transfer from one side of the toilet, etc.), it is more accessible than ever before.

You’ll note on arrival a set of railed stairs leading into the Hall. The wheelchair accessible entrance is around back. For certain events there will be someone posted at the door throughout the event and/or a bell system will be rigged up to ensure no one has to wait out there to be let in. If this has not been clarified by organizers already, please consider contacting them for details.

Once inside, you’ll find a spacious wood-floored hall, open concept, tables and chairs set up throughout. The stage (accessible only via stairs) is to your left, and the washrooms towards the back of the hall. The washrooms are currently gendered, but sometimes will be marked “gender neutral”. There are two sets of washrooms. The one to the left of the bar is currently marked “men”, is on the same level but not wheelchair accessible, with urinals and one stall. The one to the right of the bar, currently marked “women”, is wheelchair accessible with no urinals. Please note that there are no tampon dispensers, sharps containers or scent free soaps provided at The WISE, so please come prepared!

There is free parking on the surrounding streets, bike lockups outside, and accessible transit within a few blocks.
If you have any questions, concerns, additions, corrections, or kudos regarding this accessibility audit, please email the Auditor at: rampvancouver@gmail.com
