What the heck is a “drayway”?
It’s a covered alleyway with loading docks. The Artspace Drayway runs between Arthur and King streets. It’s getting the full Exchange Biz “clean and disinfect” treatment just prior to our event!
What are your covid protocols?
We’ve planned this fundraiser as an outdoor event to reduce the risk of covid transmission.
Will there be washroom access?

Is this event wheelchair accessible?
Yes. For washroom access, the west side entrance of Artspace, off King St., has a wheelchair lift to access the main lobby and washroom area.
