Transient: Accessibility

TRANSIENT

Our goal is to make our parties as inclusive and accessible as possible. We are focused on ensuring everyone at a Connect show is made to feel welcome, safe, involved and engaged.

With this in mind, we are providing the following details about Transient so everyone can be aware of what the venue provides, and what it does not. We are not experts on the range of disabilities/impairments people may have, or on the range of human diversity of our party goers, but we are always looking to improve so we encourage you to share your feedback with us.

If you have specific requirements or questions, we’ll do our best to provide a solution for you! You can contact us confidentially by email at: connectyeg@gmail.com and we’ll see what we can work out.

Everyone is welcome (as long as you’re nice).
