Classes with Sliding Scale Prices

What makes these classes different?

Sliding scale pricing is available for all of these sessions, all bodies and abilities welcome.

This sliding scale pricing scheme represents the idea that financial resources should not be the only determining factor in whether or not someone can access the services on offer. We believe in leveraging privilege to support others in our community. We invite you to assess your own circumstances and social location and pay on the scale according to your ability. Justice pricing allows us all to support accessibility for everyone. It is interdependence in action.

Which is the right rate for you?

Supporter Rate

Pay for yourself and others

People paying at a higher level will be helping enable community members who are experiencing financial difficulties an opportunity to participate at a lower rate. This is for those who have expendable income, own property, and have regular income from steady employment.

Sustainer Rate

Pay for you

This is the base cost of the class, the price that would be charged to all students in the absence of the tiered scheme. If you have access to financial security, own property or have personal savings, you would not traditionally qualify for sliding scale services. If you are able to pay for “wants” and spend little time worried about securing necessities in your life, you have economic privilege and power in our community. This price is for you.

Community Rate

Discounted Rate

The Lower rate represents an honest acknowledgment that there are those whose economic circumstances would prevent them from taking part in the classes offered if there was not a deliberate opportunity made for them to access services at a cost reflective of their economic realities. If you struggle financially, we acknowledge that you should still have access to these classes and that your contribution is equal to those of higher income brackets.
