Accessibility: The workshop will take place in the Mimi Herrndorf Studio Theatre, on the second floor of The Citadel. Community members using mobility devices can access the space via an elevator, however, it requires a staff member’s assistance to operate. We regret this obstacle to greater accessibility. The Citadel is near an accessible bus stop on Parliament Street at Dundas Street East.
