Accessibility at Talking Fresh

Accessibility is important to us. Here is more information about accessibility measures in place at Talking Fresh 2024: Craftiness.


Physical Accessibility & Arriving at our Venue

Our venue at the Docks on 1377 Hamilton Street is fully wheelchair accessible. The main entrance facing Hamilton Street is wheelchair accessible via a ramp. Accessible gendered washrooms are located in this venue.


  • The Docks is within 1-2 blocks walking distance from Regina Transit routes 1, 4, 5, and 10
  • Free parking available on-street or in the Westin Properties parking lot across from the Docks


Digital Accessibility (for our livestreamed events)

  • Live auto captions on Zoom
  • Webinar format – no camera-on obligation for attendees
  • Chat box function will be available for participants to send praise and comments to presenters digitally
  • Recordings of events available on SWG YouTube channel for 30 days (only applicable to events being recorded, not all of them are) with transcripts of videos available upon request

Read Along documents (a transcript of presentation available for participants who need it to follow along) may be available for some events. These will be available through a google drive link available as a QR code on our printed schedule and posted in the chat over Zoom by staff to the participants. Attendees will click the link and the link will open in their browser to the read along PDF document. 


Other accessibility measures:

  • Water, tea, and coffee will be available all day. We encourage attendees to bring their reusable water bottles and travel mugs.
  • Every presenter will be using a microphone
  • Self ID descriptions—this is when a presenter, before they begin their event, describes what they look like for folks who may not be able to perceive a person the way a sighted person can.
  • Events are free and open to the public


Have other access needs not being met above? Contact SWG staff; we’re happy to help make your festival experience more enjoyable.
