ON STEPS TOWARD GREATER ACCESS TO BEMIS:

During the production of I let them in., Fazeli worked with Rachel Adams, Chief Curator and Director of Programs; Chris Cook, Executive Director; and Davina Schrier, Communications Director to think through how arts and cultural organizations have effectively made steps toward greater equity and provided input on the future plans Bemis has for this work.


For Sick Time…, in dialogue with Cook and Schrier, Fazeli posted basic information related to accessibility on Bemis Center’s website and at the gallery main entrance. The posted note also includes the email address access@bemiscenter.org where people can send questions and request support that would make their visit to Bemis possible, or share general feedback about what they need for Bemis become more accessible for them. An access note traditionally occurs on an organization’s website alongside general visitor information and reflects on limits to the built environment that may impede access for persons with disabilities. In order to expand questions of access beyond concerns related to disability, conversations are underway about how to think about access intersectionally by addressing factors of class, gender, race, and sexuality. For example, one consideration is when ASL translation might be provided alongside foreign language translation, and how finite resources can be best allocated to achieve ongoing accessibility goals.

As your feedback is important, Bemis will continue to use the email address to dialogue about what is needed for you to better see yourself represented in the organization and its programs. Bemis staff will consider your feedback during monthly senior leadership team meetings and respond accordingly. You can also reach out to Fazeli with any comments about the exhibition, I let them in.
