Arts Commons is an inspirational gathering place for all Calgarians and visitors alike to experience the transformative power of the arts. 

At Arts Commons, we are committed to inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility (I.D.E.A). We work to remove barriers in collaboration with a broad range of voices. We are committed to making the arts accessible to everyone, regardless of race, religious beliefs, colour, gender, physical or mental disability, ancestry, age, place of origin, marital status, source of income, family status, sexual orientation. We live our values of being open with our hearts, our minds, and our arms. Please explore the options below to ensure your visit to Arts Commons is enjoyable and hassle-free.

Accessible Parking

The Arts Commons parkade has designated parking spaces available, but the parkade fills up quickly, so we recommend coming early. The City Hall parkade has a much larger capacity with many accessible parking stalls, should a stall not be available. Most times there is Jack Singer Concert Hall access on the +15 level, should you be arriving from the City Hall parkade. For more details call 403-537-7000 or go to Calgary Parking.

Accessible Seating

Accessible seating is available in all of Arts Commons venues. To receive best available seating and to obtain more information for wheelchair, physically impaired, or visually impaired patrons, please contact the Arts Commons Box Office at 403-294-9494 directly.

Accessible washrooms are also available throughout the building; event services staff will be happy to direct you to the closest location.

Hearing Assistance

Arts Commons is proud to provide hearing assistance programs in the Big Secret Theatre, Engineered Air Theatre, Martha Cohen Theatre, Max Bell Theatre, and Jack Singer Concert Hall.

Arts Commons uses two types of hearing assistance equipment:

  • Stethoset - works independently from hearing aids
  • Personal Induction Loop - connects wirelessly with your personal hearing aid

If you're interested in using our hearing assistance technology, please speak to an usher when you arrive at your venue.
