Community Guidelines

The vibe of the festival is all of our responsibility. These guidelines are primarily intended to raise awareness in a space where we all want to be as safe and fun as possible. Secondly, their essential purpose is to enable both to act consciously and to help all people in Sapfo to do so. Don't be afraid to take the initiative and react, and if it doesn't work - talk to the organizers. Organizers have a right to ask people out of the festival.

Let's take care of the festival area together

We maintain this homestead on our own and with the help of all your donations, so that we have the best possible space for the festival every year, we need everyone's contribution and help. Leave it better than you found, help others do the same. If you don't know how - ask!

Center queer femmes/womxn of color

Keep this a safer space. If someone is being violent in any way, they will be asked to leave. This is a space for vulnerability and pleasure, it is not to be exploited.

No toxic masculinity

If you are a man, step back. make space. masculinity comes in many different forms. Do not seek to own/control/violate/take from others to make yourself feel important.

This is a space of enthusiastic consent

If someone is not OPENLY excited to be interacting with/talking with you (this includes ANY form of touch), know they do not want to. DO NOT try to make anyone touch you (or be touched by you), speak to you or respond to you.

Be open to being checked

Be open to new language, make space for the potential for you to be wrong. We all make mistakes, but we have to practice owning and learning from them.

Make space

Reflect upon your own position, and the space you’re taking. Consider checking in with other people in similar positions, if you see them enact fuckery.

No racism, no sexism, no ableism, no classism, no transphobia, no femmephobia, no xenophobia, no fatphobia

This is a productive space for us to feel unpoliced and loved. at non-separatist events, the work is put on non-qtibipoc folks to learn how to hold space with us. we remind each other and ourselves that queerness is not about capitalist ideas of progression and achievement.

Owners are responsible for the behavior of dogs. Please seriously evaluate your dogs’ character and choose the best form of presence (or absence) at the festival for others and the dog - there will be many people, dogs, sounds and smells - not all dogs can feel calm in such an environment, so if the dog is more restless - be sure to use a leash. And if the dog is prone to aggression/ unpredictable behavior - it must wear a muzzle.

These community guidelines were inspired by the yellow jackets collective in New York city and the Bibimbatty collective and other local communities in Copenhagen.
