Who can come to India Art Fair?
India Art Fair is for absolutely everyone! With a little help from our friends at Access For All and Kolkata Centre for Creativity, we have been able to make the fair more accessible for a wider audience. All frontline staff and volunteers at the fair are trained and sensitized on accessibility needs, and are able to support persons with disabilities, the elderly and people in need. Inclusion is a key element in making the fair accessible for all, and we have a dedicated Inclusion Lab in place at the fair!
Is there a wheelchair accessible entrance?
India Art Fair is 100% wheelchair-friendly from entry to exit. We also have reserved parking at Gate 6 for senior citizens and people with disabilities, as well as special help desks at the Box Office for those looking to purchase preview passes and tickets at the fair. However, to avoid long queues, we recommend that you purchase your tickets online and in advance of the event. On special request and prior intimation, we are also able to provide a wheelchair access buddy who can take you around the fair.
Is the fair venue wheelchair-friendly?
Yes! Our exhibition halls have wide aisles and connecting spaces are interlinked with accessible ramps to allow for easy maneuverability across the entire venue. Our drop-off, parking and restrooms are accessible for one and all, and we take particular care to ensure that all signages at the fair are clear and indicate the accessibility features available at the fair.
I’m a new parent. Can I bring my little one along to the fair?
Yes, please do! We encourage new parents and families to visit the fair for a cultural day-out. The fair has multiple ways to keep children at the fair engaged through dedicated programming at the Inclusion Lab. We also have dedicated nursing and feeding rooms available on site as well as a diaper changing area. Baby strollers and prams can also be utilized at the fair, given our accessible ramps, paved and flat routes that allow for easy maneuverability.
I have a hearing impairment. Will I be able to enjoy the fair programming?
Of course, you can! At the fair, all talks, conversations and walkthroughs are made accessible through our dedicated team of trained and experienced sign language interpreters.
