The gallery floor is sealed cement- all areas are accessible to wheelchair users. The NCCA office is located on the first floor of the building. Access is via the stairway in the gallery.

We acknowledge the range of barriers people face, including but not limited to: disability, race, sexuality, gender, class and an intersection of these things.
