Disassemble the Arts

The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria has been taking steps to examine its programming around accessibility for all communities. In 2019, the AGGV completed a new accessibility audit in consultation and collaboration with many different communities and organizations in order to improve our institution. The AGGV recognizes that accessibility is an ongoing process, and we understand that access needs are different for everyone and that these needs can also change every day.

Disassemble the Arts is an evolving initiative through interviews, public programming, community conversations, and surveys, we are creating a barrier-free and accessible project that highlights the artists and communities who have been historically not included in the arts, including IBPOC, disabled, LGBTQ2+, and low or no income individuals. Through Disassemble the Arts, we want to provide longer-term changes to the Victoria arts community in terms of accessibility.

We ask that you contribute your feedback on the future of Disassemble the Arts by taking the online survey below. The survey will take around 5 to 10 minutes to complete. Please include your name and email if you would like a chance to win an Art Gallery of Greater Victoria gift pack (including free AGGV entry passes and exhibition catalogues), otherwise, the survey is anonymous. The survey will end on July 20, 2020, with the drawing of the gift pack taking place shortly after. Please contact Assistant Curator Regan Shrumm at rshrumm@aggv.ca if you have any questions.
