With the Facebook group Fans for Accessible Conventions, Mary Robinette Kowal's pledge not to attend any convention without an Access policy and the focus on Access at the recent SMOFcon (a convention for conrunners), there is increasing awareness and interest in making conventions accessible. There is however a major question mark over how that can be done. With many asking for universal access can this be achieved when people allergic to dogs and people with assistance dogs need to share a space or when people in manual wheelchairs benefit from different floor surfaces to those who need softer flooring? We explore how to navigate the difficulties of universal access, imperfect venues, volunteer organisations, and lack of funds.
