An international movement cultivating global Radical Self Love and Body Empowerment. Believing that discrimination, social inequality, and injustice are manifestations of our inability to make peace with the body, our own and others, The Body Is Not An Apology fosters global, radical, unapologetic self-love which translates to radical human love and action in service toward a more just, equitable and compassionate world. thebodyisnotanapology.com

TBINAA Founder and poet Sonya Renee Taylor, along with celebrated performer, writer and activist, Denise Jolly, share insights into how forms of oppression can be manifestations of our inability to make peace with the body — our own and others.

****Accessibility update:
Due to unforeseen challenges with this event, ASL interpretation may not be available for the presented text as previously planned. We are attempting to asses whether interpretation will be possible for part of the presentation, while we source other options such as projection for the pieces that will not be interpreted. We apologise deeply for this change and for the challenges it may cause anyone who was planning to attend and utilize the services of our ASL interpreter team. As we work with the Cultch and our team to resolve this issue, we ask that any attendees who have need of interpretation please message Jillian at jillian.christmas@gmail.com with any questions, concerns, or thoughts around this process. If you have already purchased a ticket for tonight’s event with the expectation of full ASL support, we would like to help resolve and repair any costs and/ or damage done by this late change. Thank you so much for your patience, feedback and support in this matter. ****
Please see our accessibility update for more details.

This event is a scent-reduced space. To assist us in our goal of increased access, please be aware of our attempt to reduce the impact of personal scented products (perfumes, scented oils, etc) in our festival spaces.

Cultch Accessibility Info:

The Cultch underwent major renovations in 2008, which included increasing accessibility for people with disabilities.

All areas but the balcony are wheelchair accessible. You can purchase tickets at the lowered counter outside, then enter the main space via the wide automatic door. Once inside, there is a vestibule leading into the main open-concept lobby. Continuing on, you will find three washroom options: a fully wheelchair accessible single stall gender-neutral washroom, and for Verses, two gender-neutral washrooms each with a wheelchair accessible stall. Staff are friendly and able to assist in a variety of ways.

Seats in the Cultch Historic Theatre have arms and are 18-1/2 inches wide. Arms can be removed on some seats by request.

Please note, the Historic Theatre balcony is only accessible via the staircase.

There is no designated wheelchair accessible parking, but there is street parking around the neighbourhood. As well, there are two parking spots that can be used at the rear of the building. We suggest that people call the box office ahead of time to reserve access to these spaces. There is wheelchair accessible transit within 2 blocks, and bicycle lock-ups outside.

If you have any questions, concerns, additions or corrections regarding this accessibility audit please email rampvancouver@gmail.com.
