Festival Accessibility

Venue Accessibility

The Word On The Street takes place at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre, located at 235 Queens Quay West. For information about Harbourfront Centre’s guest accessibility features, visit their website.

Accessible seating is available at all Word On The Street programming venues, and it is our goal to provide a barrier-free experience to all visitors. Festival volunteers and venue staff are happy to provide assistance and clarification so that all guests may participate fully in our festival weekend.

ASL Interpretation

On the weekend of September 21-22, at Harbourfront Centre, visitors can attend more than twenty ASL-interpreted readings, activities, and discussions on nine programmed stages. The Word On The Street is again proud to partner with Ontario Cultural Society of the Deaf and Silent Voice Canada to present the following schedule of ASL accessible events. Most of our WOTS Plus program on Saturday, September 21 will be available. You can identify the ASL-interpreted segments in the Sunday’s Festival Program on our Festival at Glance pages by the distinctive ASL symbol.
