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 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. These are some of the key elements of our access framework:
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.
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 starting in 2021.
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 friendly guides will assist wheelchair users who wish to access these installations with assistance.
Free Access for Companions
We participate in the Companion Card scheme, allowing free access to a person's carer at all of our exhibitions.
