What does accessible nightlife look like? First we’re going to talk about it, then we’re going to dance about it.
Access Denied is a dance party preceded by a panel discussion on Madison nightlife. We will dig into the ways people — specifically people of color, women, transgender people, queer people, disAbled people, people with addictions, and youth — are kept out of spaces intended for partying and entertainment.
This event is FREE and open to EVERYONE. Food provided before the panel. Cash bar available after the panel. Wheelchair accessible space. Gender neutral bathrooms available. Free childcare provided. (Please message Joey Bee if you plan to utilize childcare so that we know the approximate number of children.) Please RSVP and invite your friends!
Access Denied is a Library Takeover event funded by the Madison Public Library Foundation and organized by Sarah Akawa, T. Banks, Jean Brody, Alix Shabazz, and King Shabazz.
