Event FAQ

What is the difference between the Kindle Arts Society and the Burning Man Community?

Many people who are part of our membership are also part of the larger Burning Man community and identify with the 10 principles.  Although some of our events are officially sanctioned by Burning Man, and must comply with the rules of regional events, not all Kindle Arts events are official Burning Man events.

The Kindle Arts Society has its own constitution that guides the framework of how we operate.

What do you mean when you say there are no spectators?

Kindle Arts events are unique in the sense that they don’t happen unless everyone contributes and brings something.  Our events are entirely run by volunteers.  The entertainment, performances, DJ’s, music, art, etc. don’t happen unless attendees choose to bring it.  We provide the necessary infrastructure (security, first aid, porta potties when necessary), but it is up to you as an attendee to participate and make the event what you want it to be.  If there is something you see that you think will make the event better, we want to empower you to take action and make it better.  If you see something that you think you can improve, bring it! 

What are rangers? And why are they important?

Rangers are participants that help us to ensure safety at our events. Rangers are folks who volunteer their time as non-confrontational community members who help facilitate mediation and communication among attendees.  Rangers can assist in de-escalation, provide information of potential hazards, and carry radios to quickly relay important information in case of emergency. 

In order to volunteer as a ranger, you must complete training on an annual basis in your area.  If you would like to find out more about how to become a ranger, or available training in your area, visit https://bcrangers.ca/

Otherworld Questions

Can I bring my pet(s) to this event?

No, this event is not pet friendly.  Please leave your pets at home.

Is this event family friendly?

Otherworld is an event that is open to all ages, and it is a family friendly event. Children must attend Otherworld accompanied by a parent or guardian. Most areas of Otherworld will be family friendly, and there is often a designated area for folks who would like to bring kids.

However, there will also be separate areas that are designated for adults only.  Please take note of these areas upon your arrival and ensure your children do not enter these parts of the event.

Will you be enforcing vaccine passports?

Otherworld will be complying with all federal and provincial health guidelines. Currently, that means that the province is not enforcing vaccine passports.  We also understand that every individual has different comfort levels in regards to health and safety around Covid 19.

We empower theme camps leads and leads of communal areas to create and communicate the health and safety guidelines that make them feel most comfortable.

This may mean that some theme camps will require you to show your vaccine passport and wear a mask. We expect all participants to adhere to the guidelines that theme camps may have around their spaces.  Consent is one of the principles of the Kindle Arts Society.

Refusal to comply with the health and safety rules of theme camps may result in removal from the event. It is absolutely fundamental to our community values to respect boundaries and consent.

Ticketing Questions

How do I claim tickets that someone else purchased for me?

I can’t attend Otherworld, but I bought a ticket. How do I transfer it?

What about kid’s/teens tickets?

Tickets for kids and teens will be released as part of the main sale on April 20th, 2022 at 8:00pm

What about Caregiver tickets?

Caregiver tickets will be released as part of the main sale on April 20th, 2022 at 8:00pm

What about subsidy tickets?

Subsidy tickets will be released separately from the membership sale. There will be more details shared closer to the main sale as there is an application process involved.

Stay tuned on the event page for more information.

Can I transfer a subsidy ticket to someone else if I can’t go to Otherworld?

No. Subsidy tickets are non-transferable. If you realize that you are no longer able to attend, please request a refund directly through Eventbrite. You can find instructions on requesting a refund through this link.

What is your refund policy?

You have until June 2nd, 2022 at 11:59pm to request a refund.  After that time, refunds will be officially closed. We have implemented this policy, as we are allowing participants to register on a waitlist if tickets are sold out.

Once a refund is issued, that ticket will be offered to the next person on the waitlist automatically. However, we want to make sure that those on the waitlist have enough time to plan for Otherworld if a ticket becomes available to them.
