Code of Conduct

If you feel the need to confidentially talk to someone about things happening to you at our festival that make you feel uncomfortable, please contact one of our trustees. They are available for a talk—by phone, message, email or in person—and can as well help you reach out to the person that made you feel uncomfortable if you wish.

Code of Conduct & Bill of Rights | IMPRO Amsterdam

As performer, organiser, volunteer, teacher or festival participant, I recognise and accept my rights, and will act to provide everyone the same rights.

I have the right to set my own physical and psychological boundaries. It is OK to not be OK.
I have the right to refuse to take part, to be part, or to continue anything that makes me feel uncomfortable or unsafe without explanation.
I have the right to love, to cry, to be happy and to be sad. I have the right to feel, whatever that is and means for me, without being judged.
I have the right to speak up for myself if I feel uncomfortable or unsafe in any situation, as an audience member, a student, a performer, or a teacher. And I have the right to speak up for anyone if I witness a situation where I think somebody feels uncomfortable or unsafe.
I have the right to address a problem, I will not become the problem. – I have the right to be respected.
I have the right to be supported on and off stage.
I have the right to try and to fail.
I have the right to be the beautiful human I am.

If you need to address anything or to simply talk to somebody, we advise to preferably address directly and with the group any behaviour that makes you feel uncomfortable. In most cases, those problems are not personal between two individuals, and it’s in the interest of the group to be part of the discussion.
