We are so excited to roll out our newest program!

AMS is founded upon three pillars: education, respect and inclusion. Further to those goals, we have developed a new “Experience Enhancement Program”. This is open to individuals, agencies and groups that work with anyone who has a disability and who may find it cost-prohibitive to be able to go out and enjoy some of the amazing events and/or sites that can be found in Alberta.

Purpose of the program: to make it easier for those who have barriers to enjoying outings, so they can come out and have an enjoyable experience with all the supports they may require.

What are we offering? If you require an aide or support in order to go out, we will offer free entry to support workers so that participants can fully enjoy any of our events. This year (2018) will include the Brooks Medieval Faire, but as AMS grows, other events will be added to our list. When the settlement site is ready to be open to the public, this program will be extended to the site itself and any programing that the site offers.

Who is eligible? Anyone who has a barrier that would impact their ability to visit events such as the Brooks Medieval Faire or other, similar, events. Individuals, support groups, agencies and others are free to contact us to make arrangements. There is no age limitation. We will ask that anyone who wishes to participate in this program should contact us to make arrangements so that we can make sure we are ready for you at the gate. We can be reached via email at albertamedievalsettlement@gmail.com

There should be no barrier to experiences that teach us where we came from. Everyone should have the ability to see, hear, feel and interact with living history. We will always strive to make our sites and events as accessible as we are able, and we encourage input from our visitors. We want everyone to feel welcome and supported when they come to see us.

We want everyone to have an adventure!
