Accessible Programs

Some visitors have been excluded from art galleries and museums because of limited-to-no accessibility options or inclusivity practices. But as a public institution, The Power Plant is striving to engage as many people as possible who are interested in contemporary art, whether near or far. Thanks to a Seed grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, The Power Plant introduces Expanding Access, programs as a beginning to welcome and better serve visitors who have lived experience with disability.



Audio Guide for Slow Looking

The Power Plant invites all visitors, including those who are blind or who have low vision, for a guided audio tour of three exhibitions by Manuel Mathieu, Howie Tsui, and Nathan Eugene Carson. This recorded tour offers detailed descriptions of artwork, helping people form mental images of what they may not clearly see. The stops were created by gallery staff in consultation with Kat Germain.
