Accessibility

The Tett Centre is a fully accessible building including entrances, elevators, and restrooms. 

Insurance

Insurance for facility rentals is mandatory as it will cover rental clients and patrons with regard to legal liability for bodily injury to, or damage to property of others, resulting from rental activity.

The Tett Centre requires rental clients to carry general liability insurance in the amount of $2 million ($5 million for any event involving alcohol), naming the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning and The City of Kingston as "additional insured, inlusive of bodily injury and property damage per occurance." Rental clients must provide a Certificate of Insurance, which states the following:

  • Estimated attendance
  • Date, time, location, and type of event.

If your event is open to the public, Tett booking staff are available to suggest insurance solutions for organizations that may not be covered under their own insurance or that of their caterer, if needed. Insurance providers who specialize in the arts are also a valuable resourse including palcanada.com.
