The Place & Accessibility of Purim

Wherein we share about the venue hosting this shindig, Ant Hall, and about its accessibility.

Ant Hall (2320 Caniff St, Hamtramck) is run by Planet Ant, a 501(c)(3) non-profit professional theatre and performance venue that seeks to build community by facilitating artistic expression and collaboration in theatre, music, film and other visual and performing arts; to promote artistic freedom and expand stage access; and to enrich individual artists through training, coaching and networking.

This will be the 3rd year DJJ's Purim occurs at Ant Hall. Because parking is limited, we'll reserve spots in the lot between the venue and the Hamtramck public library for folks with access needs. We ask everyone else to use street parking in the surrounding neighborhoods (just watch out for hydrants & bus stops).

More on Accessibility

The single occupancy restroom inside of Ghost Light bar (attached to the main venue) is wheelchair accessible. The venue has an ADA approved ramp that attaches to the front entrance. 

All bathrooms are all-gender. While we can't assure that this event will be scent-free because we will have hundreds of bodies indulging in revelry, we will provide scent-free hand soap in the bathrooms.

We will not have ASL translation. We will do our best to livestream the spiel and we will provide several copies of (including large-print) the spiel at the registration table.

A catered light dinner will be nut-free with vegan and gluten-free options. We will have volunteers on hand to help with food distribution. While most folks will enjoy the nosh strolling, we'll have tables in front of stage right (near the family program) for folks who need to sit while eating. 

Please email valeriya@detroitjewsforjustice.org or call 248 802 5302 to ask for other support with accessibility. We are committed to support you to be with us as best we can.
