Anti-Harassment & Safer Spaces Policy

Atomique Productions (and RIFFLANDIA FESTIVAL) officially adopt, declare and uphold a Zero-Tolerance policy for Homophobia, Transphobia, Sexism, Racism, Religious Discrimination and Harassment. Anyone attending, working, volunteering, or otherwise involved with Atomique Productions, is encouraged to report any such incidents to festival security personnel, harm reduction teams, and/or festival staff. Attendees are also invited to email incidents@atomiqueproductions.com, which will be monitored throughout the duration of the festival. Complaints will be taken seriously, treated with sensitivity and compassion, and dealt with accordingly.

We will work closely with all security personnel and venue staff to ensure our Code of Conduct is followed, and to ensure that people in positions of authority are given the information and resources they need to properly educate themselves on these important and critical issues.

All-Gender washrooms will be made available festival wide.
