Theater Accessibility

• Group ticket sales • E-marketing • Monthly District calendars • Ad campaigns • Forums for District peer groups

A grant from the FISA Foundation is funding Shared Services’ efforts to gather, compile and disseminate information about accessibility features of the seven Cultural District theaters. The goal is to help make the District more welcoming for all patrons.
