Accessible Arts Calendar Summary
Of Current Venues and Shows
Updated 10-14-15
The VSA Minnesota Accessible Arts Calendar is available in two parts.
The following list is as much as we know about ALL the shows coming up at arts venues across
Minnesota. Some listings include plays, concerts and other arts events that offer ASL interpreting,
Audio Description (AD), Open or Scripted Captioning (OC), performers with disabilities (DIS), and
Sensory-friendly accommodations (SENS) which are inclusive for children on the autism spectrum.
Some include various accessibility policies at arts venues.
A second list is distributed by email and on our website (http://vsamn.org/community/calendar). It lists
details of each event for which one of the above accessibility accommodations is offered. These
listings include descriptions of the plays, authors, directors, describers, interpreters, ticket prices,
discounts and more. You can subscribe to a free monthly email of all these or of select parts (ASL
only, AD only, Captioning only, etc.), or you can go to our website find listings.
The following entertainment venues (organized alphabetically by Twin Cities venues and then by
Greater Minnesota venues) may offer accessible performances proactively or on request. If you
discover accessibility features not yet noted here, or if you arrange ASL or AD or Captioning, please
contact VSA Minnesota ([email protected]) and we will publicize them. (Words in GREEN may
identify their accessibility accommodations. We assume all auditoriums and bathrooms are
wheelchair-accessible and theatres with fixed seating have assistive listening devices, unless noted
otherwise.)
To submit information for future events, or to add or change info, please contact VSA Minnesota, 612332-3888, [email protected] Thanks for your interest!
