CHANGES AND LIMITATION IN THE PROGRAM

The Factory organise or host different events and we attempt to be as inclusive and giving as possible. We try to ensure that everyone can participate in the activities that interest them in a safe and collaborative manner. When you register, we cannot, however, guarantee a space in each desired workshop or activity. Not all workshops are appropriate for all participants and due to the size of spaces, the teacher might close the door when it’s full. The teachers, facilitators and organizers are empowered to determine how many people they would like and who they feel comfortable teaching to in any given circumstance.

The Factory team reserves the right to change the schedule and the programme.

This includes at times disregarding instructions or modifying activities for yourself proposed by the event organizers and facilitators. This also includes a drug- and alcohol-conscious environment as well as the strong recommendation to practice safer sex in case you engage in any sexual activities. It is our aim that as a group everyone at the festival and experiment is able to live and share a full and rewarding experience.
