Tuesday – Saturday: 12pm to 5pm
THE VERA PROJECT
Our front (show) door is located at the bottom of a ramp, and our office door is located at street level with a long hallway that goes through our recording studio to a wheelchair elevator that goes from the studio to backstage/ground level. This means that whichever door you enter, it’s possible for a chair to get to our main floor/showroom. The showroom currently doesn’t have a designated area for disabled seating or wheelchairs; the show room is mainly one big open space, but we’d be happy to figure out how to designate an area if need be. Restrooms are on the ground level and are wheelchair accessible and gender-neutral.
For other accessibility questions, please contact .
Show will contain flashing lights and loud music. Earplugs are welcomed for attendees.
The venue is located within the north end of the Seattle Center, by Key Arena. There will be free street parking in the surrounding Queen Anne areas after 6pm.
