Registration form:



From In Our Tongues Collective and Ability First Ottawa:

"The venue is wheelchair friendly, however due to a pole, there is a limit to the access of the bathroom. The closest location with accessible, public bathroom is: Bayview Station.

- Beyond The Pale Brewery (250 City Centre) open til 10pm. Full access.
- Carleton Pub (223 Armstrong) & Ministry of Coffee (1013 Wellington St.) open late, have both stated they can help with access to bathrooms, though at Ministry there is no large stall.

- There is no ramp, but the lip is small enough and someone will be available to help with popping up to enter.

- The venue is first floor access. However, it is small with a capacity of 40 people standing, so there are limitations on pivot/movement.

- There will be people on hand to help anyone with mobility needs.

We apologize for any inconvenience. We're working with the venue to ensure that accessibility needs are met with proper consultation and adequate funding."

More accessibility notes will be added soon. Please message us through our Facebook page, Instagram, or email us at with any other needs, comments, or concerns.


**This event is taking place on unceded, unsurrendered Algonquin territory. It's important we acknowledge the implications of how colonialism affects who's homeland we are on & support Indigenous resistance in all forms, especially art, and think about our connection and access to land within the context of our organizing.**

***Pass the Vibes aims to create safe(r) spaces for QTBIPOC & BIPOC! No anti-blackness, Islamophobia, racism, fatphobia, femmephobia, queerphobia, transphobia, misogyny, ableism, violence or harassment of any kind will be tolerated. You will be asked to leave the space.***
