Crowds at The Unconformity 2018

The Unconformity is committed to making our festival accessible and inclusive to all. We acknowledge the challenges in holding a site-specific arts event in a remote setting and are working to continually improve and striving to remove as many of the barriers to access that we can. Events on the website are marked with the following accessibility icons:

Visual Content Ratings

These symbols indicate what percentage of an event is visual content, helping audience members who are D/deaf, hard of hearing or for whom English is not their first language to decide if an event is suitable for them.

Aural Content Ratings

These symbols indicate what percentage of an event is sound-based, helping audience members who are blind or have low vision to decide if an event is suitable for them.

  • 100% Aural Content Rating

    Event is entirely sound-based with no visual component.

  • 75% Aural Content Rating

    Event is primarily sound-based with visuals secondary to the work.

    Events with 75% aural content include: Sing Where You Are: Queenie Quoir

  • 50% Aural Content Rating

    Event has both sound and visual components but sight isn’t essential to meaningfully engage with the work.

    Events with 50% aural content include: Collision, Colosseum, Good Silence, Random Impulse,Welcome to Country
