Rules

Basic care of all towards all

  • Respect and ask for participants’ pronouns. It is important not to assume anyone’s gender.
  • If we approach someone and are going to make physical contact we have to make sure that the other person allows it. If the other person feels uncomfortable we should not insist.
  • We always feel great when we are listened to, so it is important to respect other people’s voices.
  • Take care of the space around us: use the litter bins, keep the work space clean, respect the timetable of the event… and above all, before leaving, leave the space as it was at the beginning of the event. The staff will thank you for it!
  • Be responsible for the way we express ourselves. Let’s be respectful of everyone at the event.
  • We all make mistakes, if a participant tells us that they are not happy with something we have done, we can take responsibility and apologise.
  • If we see any behaviour from a person that is not cool, we can report that behaviour to that person or to the event staff.
  • We like to take photos/videos to have an unforgettable memory of the event, but it is important to make sure that everyone gives you their consent before taking it or posting it on social media.
  • When it’s time to go to sleep, we promise to be quiet and respect the sleep of the participants, the games are much better if we are rested!
  • Let’s take into account how we feel about attending this event. If we don’t feel emotionally available, we should rest and regain our strength. Self-care always comes first.
