Accessibility

Our goal is for our facility to be inclusive and accessible. If you have an accommodation request, please let us know two weeks before your planned visit/class so that we can make sure you have the best possible experience. We may not be able to accommodate requests made after this time. 

General


Parking and Drop Off

There is a temporary parking area with a ramp at the front of the building.  There is one accessible parking space next to the building along Turner Boulevard.  If that space is taken, please go to the front desk (or call 912.651.6783) and, space permitting, we will give you a pass to park alongside or in front of the building. 

Sensory Room

There is a sensory room available for individuals seeking a calm, quiet place during their visit. The room features several options for comfortable seating, a tactile wall, adjustable lighting, fidget toys, and more. This room can also be used by nursing mothers.

We have a variety of accessibility options available if you are attending a performance at the Savannah Cultural Arts Center.

Seating

Wheelchair accessible seating is available for performances in the Ben Tucker theater. 

Fidget Items

Pop balls are available for use during performances. Please see our front desk staff to request one.

 Sign Language Interpretation

Sign language interpretation can be provided during performances. Please notify us at least two weeks in advance so that we can arrange this for you. 

Classes

We have accessibility options in our classes. If you or your child need special accommodation, please notify us at least two weeks before the start of class. We want everyone to feel welcome and accommodated and it is our goal to make sure our patrons have the best possible experience. There is a wheelchair accessible potters’ wheel available, and we have assistive grips for paintbrushes and other art tools.  We recommend that art students who use wheelchairs come a few minutes early to the first class, so we can be sure we have a worktable that is a comfortable fit. 

Experienced Instructors

Many of our instructors are experienced in teaching neurodivergent children and adults, people with mobility limitations, and people who are blind or have low vision. We do need to know in advance, so please let us know at least two weeks in advance of the first class.

 Class Offerings

We occasionally offer classes specifically for neurodivergent children and adults such as Basic Beginning Ballet. To learn more about our current offering, please contact us at 912-651-6783 or scac@savannahga.gov.
