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.

Code of Conduct

Conduct Committee

Membership Is Free

But Some Assembly Required

We are guided by the 10 principles of Burning Man. These principles guide our interactions with one another and the environment and have a strong ethos of participation. As such, our events and the society are entirely dependent upon community participation.

Membership isn't required to participate, but members enjoy a number of perks including access to a community of doers and dreamers.
