SOAK is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone. Harassment includes (but is not limited to) unwelcome offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, and religion. It also includes (but is not limited to) deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender and/or expelling them from the event.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of event staff immediately. Event staff can be identified as they’ll be wearing branded t-shirts and/or laminated badges, and carrying radios. Event staff will be happy to help participants contact event security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event.

Fire Regulations

We have updated our policies regarding the use of fire at SOAK to reflect the change in date, venue, and legal restrictions placed on the event. The new policy stipulates that all fire must fall under one of three categories:

(1) A propane-based flame effect (this includes “poofers”, patio heaters, elevated propane fire pits, …etc.); (2) A registered “effigy” burn; (3) A “flow arts” tool (poi, staff, sword, etc., using naptha/kerosene).

Theme camps utilizing propane-based flame effects must register here by April 27: http://bmpdx.com/themecamp

Individual fire performers utilizing ‘flow arts’ tools must register here by May 12: http://bmpdx.com/fire

Get Involved and Properly Registered
