Who We Are
We are group of dedicated dreamers, who aim aim to highlight the intersectionality between dance, music, movement and art with mental health and wellness. We come from many backgrounds, shapes and sizes. Presented by Monkey Bunny Inc in partnership with Coolpery Entertainment, Curbside Productions, LIT: Legends in Time, and The Sanctuary.
We are producing this event because we believe in the healing power of community, music, art and expression. We want you to leave this event feeling lifted not exhausted. We will be providing a lot to see and do, but with 3 days you're sure to be able to get to it all!
We understand that representation matters. We celebrate differences in tastes and preferences in lifestyles and music. As such, we make a commitment to try and pay special attention towards increasing representation of diverse ethnicities, gender identities, and musical stylings, on the stage and on our production crew.
Please use Bio degradable when possible made from recycled materials, reusable when possible, environmentally friendly soap and proper grey water disposal. Bring a cup and large jugs of water instead of endless bottles of water.
Please no plastic glitter (the bio degradable kind is fine) or boas (fake feathers are no good).
Cigarette butts are another big issue – please don’t throw your cigarette butts on the ground (the animals could eat them) or in the fire (we cook on those).
Please plan on being responsible for your own waste. If you see someone littering, please remind them about MOOP or say something to our staff. This includes pop up frames, tents, trash, sleeping bags etc. - we can all help each other be accountable.
We will have recycling receptacles for cans and plastic on site as well as composting options. We encourage people to recycle, up-cycle, and compost whenever possible. It’s the small things that we all do, that make a difference.
Ask before you touch. What is consent? Ask them. If they say yes - then it means yes, if they say no it means no, if they can’t say anything, the answer is no, and if they are under duress or coercion the answer is always no, even if they say yes.
All people are welcome here. As such, we adamantly oppose any ideology that is based in racist, sexist or bigotry, xenophobia. We request that guests refrain from using racist, sexist or bigoted hate speech. If you happen to hear any of this kind of language we request that you inform our staff so that we can address the situation.
What is hate speech? It is words and phrases that are derogatory, violent or threatening in nature towards someone or a group of people.
We want all our guests to feel safe. If anyone feels unsafe due to the actions or words of another guest or staff member please, please let security, the organizers, or the venue know - so that we can address the situation immediately.
Personal Responsibility and Self Reliance
We all have enough to handle taking care of ourselves. Don’t make anyone else life harder by coming un-prepared. Check the weather, dress appropriately, party responsibly, act with intention and be willing and able to care for yourself. We of course will have friendly and professional security and medical staff, but let’s try to keep their jobs as easy as possible. Guests agree to sign a liability waiver.
Honesty. Integrity. Respect for the web life and biodiversity that sustains all of us.
Charitable giving is a big part of our lives and practice. Once the event has paid for its base line costs, we pick a charity to share the event profits with. For 2018 Fields of Consciousness has chosen to donate 50% of all profits with MAPS.
