Vancity Culture Lab, The Cultch (C-Lab)
1895 Venables Street
As a black box studio, all the lighting and audio technology is accessible from anywhere in the room. The seating system is comprised of movable risers that can be set up to virtually any configuration that space will allow.
The C-Lab, as we like to refer to it, is a cinder block construction with the latest in acoustical properties. The room is draped with black velour that is all on tracks allowing for any easy change to the backdrop of your production.
Please read the full audit below from the Radical Accessibility Mapping Project for more details.

You’ll note on arrival a set of 10 railed stairs leading into the Hall. The wheelchair accessible entrance is around back. For this event there will be someone posted at the back door throughout the event.
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 will be marked “gender neutral” for Verses. There are two sets of washrooms. The one to the right of the car, currently mark “women” is wheelchair accessible with no urinals and one additional stall. The one to the left of the bar, currently mark “men”, is on the same level and is now wheelchair accessible, with 2 urinals and one wheelchair access stall and one non-wheelchair access stall. The door has been adjusted to more easily fit wheelchair/scooter users. Overall the space is great.
