Lead by example
The Bus Stop Theatre has been a transformative and positive force for good since day one. As the space took life it became a community hub with far reaching community impact. It evolved into a cooperative with community-based board of directors.
They reached out to the community for support to buy the building they’ve called home for years. They succeeded to secure the money and bought the building.
At every turn they’ve remained connected, driven by a commitment to stay true to their roots and to accessible, equitable, and safe space for artists and the community.
As part of that commitment, they asked us to help make their website accessible.
Web accessibility isn’t talked about much but it’s a pretty major problem. More and more in our daily lives important activities require web access.
We rebuilt the Bus Stop Theatre Coop website with an eye on improving site accessibility. We identified a variety of ways to improve accessibility by using better tools and set out to achieve WCAG 2.1, the international standard Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. We’re almost there.
As this project progresses over 2021 and into 2022, we are posting updates and insights on our blog.
