We believe that everyone has the right to be treated equally, regardless of our race, ethnicity, nationality, class, belief, sex, gender, language, sexual orientation, gender identity, sex characteristics, age, health, appearance, place on the spectrum or other status.
Sugar Republic welcomes everyone and we have a framework in place to ensure that our exhibitions are accessible to all. This framework is regularly reviewed and adapted, and we invite feedback from the community. Below are some of the key elements of our access framework.
Please email us if you have any questions about access or to let us know if we can provide extra assistance during your visit.
We do not tolerate discrimination, abuse or hatred on any level and we will not allow offensive or discriminatory acts at our events, on our social media platforms, or in our workplace.
Visitors who show disrespectful behaviour to other guests or staff will be asked to desist and may be asked to leave if such behaviour continues.
We welcome adults and children who identify as autistic. Sugar Republic events include clear communication across all media and at the venue; quiet sessions; sensory elements; our guide staff have an awareness of autism. We are currently working with ASPECT (Autism Spectrum Australia) to create a comprehensive autism-friendly foundation for our new program of events.
We aim to make all locations, venues and spaces accessible to wheelchair users. At times there will be installations which, by their nature, cannot be accessed by wheelchair. Our guides are available to assist wheelchair users who wish to access these installations with assistance.
Please note that our 2021 Sydney venue at The Rocks very sadly does not have wheelchair access to the upper floor due to its heritage architecture. Wheelchair users are offered free entry into the ground floor installations.
Free Access for Companions
We participate in the Companion Card scheme, allowing free access to a ticket holder's carer at all of our exhibitions.
