April - Hawk Route (PDF)

  • ​Tues, April 10, 2018 from 12:00-1:00 pm
  • Join us for a rededication ceremony to unveil a new logo and wayfare signage for the Hawk Route (12:00-12:20 pm).  Then experience* the Hawk Route, an accessible and inclusive indoor and outdoor path connecting Jayhawk Blvd to Sunnyside Ave.  On the descent learn about the Hawk Route (approximately 12:20-12:40 pm).  On the way back, transverse the Hawk Route with use of a wheelchair and/or audio description of the route (approximately 12:40-1:00 pm).  The activities described below are optional as well as traveling up the hill.  We will take the same route back that we took coming down.  Audio Description gives people with vision impairments access to the visual information presented in a video, performance, or exhibit.  The audio description of the Hawk Route provides narrative instructions on navigating the route.  It is intended to provide equal access to the Hawk Route for people with vision impairments. 
  • *We encourage everyone to participate in the experiential portion of the Hawk Route even for just a couple of minutes.  Those wishing to experience the Hawk Route with use of the audio description of the route, should have the audio recording of the route from Sunnyside to Jayhawk Blvd pulled up on the their phone and bring headphones (so we don't hear several recordings playing at once).  A few sleeping masks will be shared among the group and you’re welcome to bring your own mask/ eye covering.   You'll pair up with a person, so they can help keep you navigate the course.  The partners will pair up at the Move-N-Learn and will switch roles at their own convenience.  We recommend viewing the video from Sunnyside to Jayhawk Blvd (click on the first of three videos) to help familiarize yourself with the audio recording's directions.  You may also experience the route with the use of a wheelchair.  A wheelchair will be provided for shared use on the route. 
  • Videos, audio recording, and written directions to guide you through the Hawk Route​ are available here.
