At DGTL we care deeply about creating an environment in which a person can feel confident that they will not be exposed to discrimination, criticism, harassment, or any form of emotional or physical harm.
By educating and training our crew and staff, we hope to provide timely responses and take accountability. During our ADE events you’ll find members of our Awareness Crew walking around.
They have been trained by Rave Scout Cookies, and they have participated in a physical workshop by Fairspace around (sexual) harassment, the impact it has & what to do if you see or experience it. With the crew’s presence, we hope to create a safer space at our festival grounds.
How to recognize them
The Awareness Crew are just like me & you; they are not security or a busy crew member – and they are there solely for our DGTL family. You will be able to recognize them by their bodywarmers with “Awareness Crew” on the back and our safe badge in the front.
If you witness behaviours that make you feel unsafe, please notify our awareness crew, team leads, or security personnel. We want to stress that nobody is allowed to occupy a space, mind, or body that has not been mutually agreed upon. Consent is obtained when the other party says an enthusiastic “Yes”, not when someone doesn’t say “No”.
