Greater Vancouver Interactive Arts Society (GVIAS) expects attendees and volunteers to create and maintain a space that is welcoming for all attendees. We do not discriminate based on sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, race, colour, socioeconomic status, age, marital and/or family status, or religion.
We are guided by the 10 Principles of Burning Man.
Our community aims to provide a respectful space for all participants, within which consent plays a critical part. GVIAS events can be overwhelming environments, and we want to ensure that we co-create a safer space for radical self-expression while protecting against discrimination, harassment, bullying, and assault. Many diverse participants are present in our community, and where one person’s self-expression and another’s boundaries come in contact, all parties are responsible for navigating the interaction. If a person does not feel comfortable, they can leave the situation, ask for a Ranger, or seek other assistance. If desired, a report can subsequently be made to the Conduct Committee.
