Accessibility Icons

Accessibility Icons are an important way to denote what type of event your guests will be entering into. Is this a closed event just for members of a particular community? Is there elevator access to the space? Will there be loud noises, bright lights, &/or strong scents in the space? Accessibility Icons allow you to easily communicate what to expect so that guests can make more educated decisions & plan accordingly if needed.

An icon from each category may not make sense for every event. You are welcome to use any & all of these icons based on what type of event you are putting on.

Do you have an idea for a new icon? Email us at to suggest one!
