Accessibility

Reel Grrls is committed to serving youth of all abilities, and we welcome people with and without disabilities into our space and our programs. Our media lab, studio, and classroom are wheelchair accessible. While we have worked hard to develop the accessible features of our space, we recognize that some access challenges remain. Here is a short list of some of the access features of our space:
  • Wheelchair accessible ramp leading to front door
  • Flexible program space with furniture that is easily moved
  • Editing computers placed on two adjustable-height desks
  • Wheelchair accessible bathrooms
  • A range of flexible, portable video production equipment and software so that all media makers can use the tools that work best for them
  • Adaptive technology such as a joystick mouse, headphone audio boosters, and accessible keyboards

We welcome questions, conversations, and suggestions about how our programs and space can be more accessible for all. If you have a disability and would like to discuss the accessibility of our space, programs, or equipment, or if you have any other questions about access in the space, please contact Program Manager Maile Martinez at mmartinez@reelgrrls.org or (206) 323-0693.

In 2012, Reel Grrls offered DIS THIS, the first ever disability and media justice workshop for youth. Youth analyzed representations of disability in the media and created short videos in response. Reel Grrls has also launched a partnership with DO-IT , a University of Washington program for college-bound youth with disabilities. We offer disability justice and media production training for their scholars in the summer.
