BitF believes deeply in radical inclusion. In recent years we have added an Accessibility Lead to our production team and just last year we implemented the PIRATE SHUTTLE for use by Persons with Disabilities (which was also gratefully used by parents with little ones and volunteers getting off shift).
Our new home in Merritt on the Coldwater river is relatively flat, and is much more accessible than our previous site. However, it is a BIG site.
The production team will again run an accessibility shuttle at BitF 2023, which has been rebranded RAMEN GO! to match BITF’s soup theme.
Rides can be arranged through Mobility Camp (there will be regular pickups from there) and by request. Just ask someone with a radio to contact SHUTTLE to get a pick up when needed.
We know that there is always room for improvement.
We are committed to supporting people meaningfully participating in our BitF community and would love to hear from you about any accessibility needs you may have.
If you have any specific questions or requests around accessibility, please email accessi[email protected]. We look forward to hearing from you!
