Access to events
All events should be accessible to people with disabilities. For example, for the elderly or people with physical or mental disabilities. As a visitor or an artist. The City of Leeuwarden Accessibility Working Group will be happy to make suggestions about which care and aid equipment are fit for purpose. They can be reached via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Digitally accessible Information
Transport and accessibility
- Provide parking spaces within 50 metres of the entrance.
- Pay attention to the width of access roads. This should be at least 1.20 metres.
- Think about a solution for how people return home after an event and in case of emergencies.
At the event site itself
- Provide a hard, flat and non-slip surface. Both on the event site itself, and around it. So that wheelchair users can get anywhere they want to go.
- Make sure that height differences are no more than 20 mm.
- Do not make slopes steeper than 5%.
- Create a passage at least 1.20 metres wide.
- Make sure people with disabilities can also see the performers on stage.
- Provide enough space for wheelchairs (width 90 cm and depth 1.20 metres) and a seat for a companion.
- Provide clear signs showing directions. These should also be readable from a wheelchair. Use icons if possible.
- Make cash registers and issue points a maximum of 1 metre high. For example, for drinks, tokens and food.
- Provide adapted toilets nearby.
