At the moment Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons is only open by appointment, to visit the office gallery and bookstore, or to speak with us. Please mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Following safe measures, wearing a mask is mandatory, as well as registration and visitation to occur when no COVID-19 symptoms are present.
Moreover: in light of our 30 years of existing, we would like to invite you to come over and experience the archiving process with us, as well as a tour of Casco, and hear many stories of our vast history, every Wednesday, 7 October to 11 November from 17:00 till 19:00. If you are interested, please make an appointment via email@example.com
For those visiting Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons for the first time, it might be useful to understand accessibility in our beautiful but challenging building:
Due to the steps leading up to the entrance and the building’s internal staircases, Casco is not currently wheelchair accessible. We are working towards making Casco an accessible space for wheelchair users in the future.
The bathroom is a (small) single stall.
Our mediation material is available in both English and Dutch, and our events are typically spoken in English, unless otherwise noted.
If you need sign language interpretation, we can offer either American Sign Language, or Nederlandse Gebarentaal. Please reach out to us a week in advance in order for us to secure an interpreter.
In consideration of our visitors with multiple chemical sensitivities and autoimmune illnesses, we kindly ask that you come scent-free.
Please contact us through Staci Bu Shea if you will need some extra help, and we can assist you to visit our exhibitions and attend the many events in our multifarious program.
In the meantime, we would like to share the article Access Intimacy: The Missing Link by disability activist and community organizer Mia Mingus, whose work is inspiring us in our investigation into making Casco accessible “on the ground” while broadening our notions of access and ability. If you are interested in supporting and being part of this process, either by sharing your knowledge and experience, or by making a financial contribution, please contact Staci Bu Shea@casco.art text: Staci Bu Shea).
