By entering the Interfusion Festival grounds you are agreeing to the below consent code of conduct. The Interfusion Consent Team and Security Members will be available to report any consent or boundary crossing situations and incidents of inappropriate behavior. Consent Team Members will be identified by red armbands and lanyards.
To report any incidents of inappropriate behavior online, use the Interfusion Incident Reporting Form. The festival consent team has the authority to take actions if the behavior of any individual or small group detracts from the safe, relaxed and comfortable atmosphere of the festival.
CONSENT CODE OF CONDUCT
Interfusion is committed to creating a safe haven of creativity and personal growth for all participants. Here are our community consent rules of etiquette, or Code of Conduct, so everyone feels safe and at choice.
- Consent First: All participants must receive explicit consent before any interaction that involves physical contact.
- Yes & No: “Yes” means yes. Hesitation or “maybe” means “no” or there’s something to clarify.
- Check In: Check in during any physical activity for another “Yes”. Ask questions, talk, clarify when ambiguous (e.g. Do you feel safe? Does that feel good? Do you want to continue?).
- Consent Resets: A “yes” once does not mean “yes” in the future. Don’t make assumptions.
- Say Stop: Want an interaction to end but you don’t know what to say? Use the word STOP. The word stop is understood to mean you want an interaction to end.
- Compliance: If someone says STOP to you, that means your interaction ends immediately.
- Communicate: It is encouraged to talk about what just happened with the individual to build and spread awareness. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to them, tell others what happened and talk to a consent team member right away. The community and consent team are here to help.
- Contact: Contact a consent team member if you think you may have crossed someone’s boundaries, had your boundaries crossed, or gotten into a questionable situation around consent. Contact the security team for serious violations. Use the Incident Reporting Form to report after festival hours.
- Report: If you see or experience consent behavior that is inappropriate or out of line, report it immediately. The consent team aims to catch consent breaks early, and often, so we can prevent more traumatic violations (e.g. the person isn’t sober, you’ve said STOP more than once, you feel unsafe).
If any person, or group of persons, violates or is not in accordance with these Code of Conduct policies, they may be escorted out of the festival grounds, expelled from future events, and/or released to authorities.
