********************************************************************************************ACCESSIBILITY INFO *************************************************************************
Sawdust Collector takes place at The Gold Saucer Studio, a collective-run space located in The Dominion Building. Information for how to enter the show is posted on the front door of the building by 8:30 PM on every show night. You will need a cell phone to enter. If you do not have access to a phone, please contact us before the show and we will be happy to make alternative arrangements to get you in.

The front door is located at 207 W. Hastings. There is one stair between the sidewalk and the building level. The studio is located on the second floor, and is accessible by elevator. Seating is informal. There is one single-occupancy, gender-inclusive washroom on the second floor, accessible by key. We are a trans-inclusive space.

Sawdust Collector is run by us, three artists and our friends, who curate and produce the events on a volunteer basis. We own the glassware but not the room. A bit of scruff is part of the deal. If you have questions about what kind of scruff you're in for, please feel free to contact us: heysawdustcollector@gmail.com

We acknowledge that our work takes place in Vancouver on traditional and unceded Indigenous land belonging to the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish),Stó:lō and səlil̓wətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We are grateful for this place.
