The principles of a safer space
At a good party, all guests are welcome, they are treated with respect and equality, and no one is left out.
– We expect that guests respect each other’s diversity and allow each other’s differences to improve the party atmosphere. Even if one dances to a different drum or dresses differently than others, at this festival everyone has an equal right to celebrate.
– The introductory texts of unprecedented performers may sound strange to your ears at first, but the performers have a habit of winning guests over. Please also meet the other guests with the same open-mindedness and warmth!
– Good parties are a great opportunity to find new friends. When getting to know other guests, it is good etiquette to have good manners and respect the other person’s boundaries. Be kind, ask permission, don’t assume, listen to others and try to understand them.
– If you notice disruptive behavior or another guest seems to need help, please help in case of need or contact the nearest Awarness team member, security guard, staff or first aid tent.
– If something happens in the buzz of the festival, apologize and learn from your mistakes. It takes real courage to learn and apologize, after which it’s easier for everyone to get back into the party mood. Try to forgive others if they unintentionally offend you.
