The Tuckamore Festival is dedicated to providing space that is accessible, inclusive, and free from oppression, harassment, and discrimination. During our events and gatherings, and as part of our concert series and Young Artist Programs, we will treat each other with respect and dignity, regardless of age, race, gender expression, gender identity, sexual orientation, levels of ability, religion and all our other diverse identities.
Safe(r) Spaces Policy
Tuckamore Music Festival believes that inclusivity in music is crucial to the betterment of the musical institution as a whole. A fundamental principle of this festival’s organization is the maintenance of an inclusive, cordial environment for all of our participants. Our values as an organization include remaining conscious and committed to amplifying historically-oppressed voices, as well as working with community leaders of marginalized populations to strive toward safe(r) spaces for all.
We believe everyone has the right to feel safe at any event they attend. Event spaces — and all spaces — should be non-threatening and supportive to all attendees.
Tuckamore Festival does not tolerate abusive or discriminatory behaviour at our events. Such behaviour is grounds for removal from a Tuckamore venue and may result in cancellation of one’s passport privileges or – where applicable – a permanent Tuckamore ban.
We believe in the safety and wellbeing of our performers, staff and audience members. If you witness abusive or discriminatory behaviour at one of our events, please speak with a venue manager or event coordinator (ask any worker for assistance in finding them).
