The CityFolk Festival is about people working together to deliver a music festival which celebrates artists and their creativity as well as community. Mutual respect and cooperation are the cornerstones of this organization. Every participant including artists, volunteers, staff, sponsors and festival attendees is entitled to be free from discrimination and harassment, both at the festival and at all CityFolk Festival events, on the basis of age, sex, colour, national or ethnic origin, race, religion, marital status, criminal record, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, language, class or political belief.
If you experience harassment at an CityFolk Festival event you should contact the Festival Organizers to discuss the situation and possible responses. Our initial approach is to encourage early and informal resolution and to facilitate a direct conversation which resolves the matter.
Harassment in all its forms detracts from our common purpose and weakens our organization and will not be tolerated. We encourage all involved with the Festival to treat each other with dignity and respect.
