Throughout the entire weekend, we will have a team available for conflict management, as listening team and to help out with accessibility concerns. This team will be visibly marked and a phone number will be available through which they can be reached at all times. Next to this team, the infostall will be available to help out.
Accessibility announcement Sunday May 2022
We have unfortunately found out that there will be municipality construction work on the concrete area of the grounded terrain that was due to have one of the tents set up and accessible by wheelchair. We are allowed to use the grass field neighbouring the site, which is a flatter area for the tents to be situated. We are currently working on ways to make this wheelchair accessible, however we cannot currently guarantee autonomy in mobility for this new location. We are very sorry for this new change and will work on finding ways around this new development.
Friday (Voorkamer, Lombok):
- The location is reachable by car, public transport or by bike. From the closest busstation, the location is 5 minutes by foot. Bikes can be parked on location.
- We are looking into disabled parking spots at the location, currently it is unsure if these will be available.
- The building itself is wheelchair accessible. However, there is not a wheelchair accessible toilet in the building itself. There is an accessible toilet 4 minutes away at Buurthuis Rosa, which we are able to use for the Friday night program.
We will have translation in English and Dutch for this evening. This translation will be done live and alongside the speaker into the other langauge (English or Dutch respectively).
The food will be vegan and allergens will be marked. Please let us know at the entrance to the Voorkamer if you have specific requirements for food.
Unfortunately we will not have childcare available at the Friday program.
Alcohol and other drugs
Will be updated
Saturday (farm tours around Utrecht)
Unfortunately, we can only provide very limited wheelchair accessibility for the programme on Saturday. Below you can find a clearer description of what is available and what is not.
- This day program is unfortunately inaccessible for wheelchairs. For other disabilities, we will do our best to find possibilities for accessibility. However, we cannot guarantee autonomy in mobility.
- There will not be a wheelchair accessible toilet for this day.
- On the farms we will outline a designated smoking area; we will ask people to only smoke in this designated area.
The farms are accessible by cars, public transport and bike. We will be organising at least one car to be available for the tour (an option in the sign up form will be made available for utilising this transport option). From the closest busstation the location is 15 minutes by foot.
We cannot provide childcare during this part of the festival.
Achohol and other drugs
Will be updated
Sunday (Grounded, Lunet I)
We are currently working on making part of the festival at the grounded site wheelchair accessible. However, given the steepness of the terrain and a large part requiring access by stairs, one tent and some of the program will not be wheelchair accessible. Below you can find a clearer description of what is available and what is not.
- The location is reachable by car, public transport or by bike. From the closest busstation, the location is 15 minutes by foot. The closest tram station is also 15 minutes by foot. From the closest train station it is 20 minutes by foot. Bikes can be parked on location.
- We will have a clearly marked parking spot for disabled folks, where only people with a valid disability-card can park. Please reach out to info [at] aseed [dot] net if you require such a parking spot so it can be reserved.
- Parts of the festival will happen on concrete ground at the entrance to the festival, as well as in an inside area for workshops. Both are accessible autonomously for folks with reduced mobility. This area includes stalls, parts of the workshops (in a workshop tent) and the eating area. Some of the workshops will happen on a grassfield, as mentioned prior these other workshops are on a higher and uneven terrain, so this unfortunately is not wheelchair accessible.
- A wheelchair-accessible toilet is available on site.
- The edge of the festival area will be marked with tape and woodchips on the ground, so it is clear for folks with impaired sight where the terrain ends. The route on the terrain will be clearly marked with directional signs.
- The performances are unfortunately not accessible by wheelchair as they are on the higher ground, due to issues with noise complaints stated by the location with the performances being on the lower terrain. .
- We will have a designated smoking area; we will ask people not to smoke in the camp, only in this designated area.
- We will have a low-sensory area, that is a calm space and will also be used as a support and recovery area. This space is especially meant for neuro-atypical folks.
Food will be cooked in the kitchen area just in front of the bunker. There will be an accessible eating area.
The food will be vegan and allergens will be marked. Please let us know at the infostall if you have specific requirements for food.
We will have a simultaneous translation system for the sessions. We will ask before every session, whether any specific languages are needed and whether someone can translate. The devices and headphones will be provided. We are still working on finding Dutch Sign language translators, so that the sessions can be translated. If you have contacts, don’t hesitate to contact us.
We cannot provide childcare during the festival. (check regarding workshops / sessions suitable for children)
