Code of Conduct for all imagineNATIVE Attendees

At imagineNATIVE, we strive to create a Festival atmosphere that brings people together in
a good way to mutually celebrate our stories, cultures and arts.

All attendees to imagineNATIVE, including Elders, invited delegates, and members of the
public, have the right to be free of harassment, discrimination, sexism, and threatening or
disrespectful behaviour – either in-person or online – from others attending the Festival.

This could include but is not limited to:

  • offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, physical acts, disability, physical appearance, race, ethnicity, or religion;
  • deliberate intimidation;
  • harassing photography;
  • sustained disruption of talks or other events;
  • inappropriate physical contact.

We reserve the right to refuse entry or revoke accreditation to Festival events and venues
without notice for those who engage in such conduct. If you experience a violation of this
Code of Conduct at the Festival please contact a member of staff.

All violations of the law should also be reported to local law enforcement. For emergencies,
immediately dial 911.

We strive to work and walk responsibly, professionally and caringly at all times and ask that
you share this commitment to fostering a supportive, loving and safe Festival environment.

We at imagineNATIVE acknowledge that this land located on present-day Tkaronto (Toronto) is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, the Huron-Wendat, and the Mississaugas of the Credit.

We acknowledge the Dish With One Spoon covenant, a treaty whose spirit is one based in collective stewardship and reciprocity. We take the spirit of this covenant to the core of our operations as we bring artists and audiences from many nations across the globe together through our various initiatives and activities.

Please take a moment to think of the land you currently reside upon, wherever you may be, and  acknowledge those who went before and those yet to come.
