We pride ourselves on making the arts accessible to everyone! Whether it’s providing more than 14,000 half-price tickets to disadvantaged children, or serving kids who are hard of hearing or deaf with one of eight shadow-interpreted shows annually, we don’t want anyone to miss the chance to explore their creativity.
That includes the Internet experience. The Arvada Center is proud to say our new website is now 100% ADA compliant to Conformance Level A as dictated by the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 and 100% compliant to U.S. Section 508 guidelines for accessibility adopted by the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) of the U.S. Federal government.
