ConFest Online Presenter/Performer Policy
Any topic is allowed in a workshop provided it doesn’t break the following rules:
- NO bullying (ConFest Online has a zero tolerance for bullying and you will be removed from every platform immediately)
- Does not promote extremely inappropriate behaviour eg. harming someone else or yourself, sacrifice, peer pressure to break the law etc.
- Inappropriate nudity - Nudity is accepted however a disclaimer needs to be added to your workshop description and also a disclaimer at the start of the workshop.
- Inappropriate sexual acts - Workshops of a sexual nature are accepted however a descriptive disclaimer needs to be added to your workshop description, an age restriction and also a disclaimer at the start of the workshop. We expect tasteful workshops that don’t cross the line of inappropriate.
- Controversial topics can be discussed however if this crosses over into an attack on people, any form of bullying or aggressive behaviour then it will be shut down. Play nice!
- If you would like to take photos during the workshop then please ask permission from all attendees and give them an opportunity to switch off their camera and change their name to anonymous if they do not wish to be in it.
- ConFest Online works similarly to ConFest, you may not sell your goods unless you are a registered market vendor (head here to register: https://confest.org.au/online/market-stalls)
- Workshops are offered for free with no external sign up process, you may do a very short plug for your business with a link provided to continue the conversation externally but the workshop should not be offered to gain clients. Presenters that are not acting in the spirit of ConFest and sharing their knowledge without expectation of return will not be able to present again.
If these rules are breached then your workshop will be removed or immediately shut down.
You will be removed from all of ConFest Online platforms and possibly ConFest platforms also. This is non negotiable.
If you are edging the border of these rules, you will receive a warning.
