This special edition of Long Winter celebrates the 1-year anniversary of Tea Base, a politicised DIY community art space tucked away in the basement of Chinatown Centre.
The Gladstone Hotel is an accessible venue! In their guest role as curators, Hannia Cheng and jes sachse will be your hosting accessibility ambassadors. With generous support from the Toronto Arts Council, we are able to provide ASL interpretation, live audio description, care attendants, and sensory rooms, alongside programming wonderful Deaf and disability art content throughout. When you arrive at the hotel, please approach the concierge at the front desk if you need support! Since the hotel operates as a business we cannot guarantee a scent free space however, if you have any questions, concerns, or needs (including ttc fare!) prior and leading up to the event please don’t hesitate to contact Hannia and jes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
