#2) PICTO ONLINE CONFERENCE LIVE BROADCAST
For those unable to join in person, we have good news: If you can’t come to Pictoplasma, Pictoplasma comes to you!
This year we’re broadcasting all 2024 conference lectures + screenings (May 2–4) as a real-time online stream – for you to enjoy from the comfort of your couch.
Access to the live conference broadcast comes as part of the all-new PictoPRO membership priced at a limited launch offer of 69 € (+VAT – billed annually, €5.75 / month) and automatically activates 1 year of 24/7 access to our growing video archive of 230+ PictoTalks by cutting edge artists from around the world, exclusive online community programmes + workshops, and more…
To activate PictoPRO membership and access the PICTO TV area with the broadcast of the conference, you need to create a free account for our online community on home.pictoplasma.com (formerly known as pictofolio.com) – or sign in to your existing account if you already have one – and upgrade to PRO.
Pictoplasma continuously works to keep the festival a welcoming, safe and friendly experience for all guests, staff, volunteers and artists. In other words, we do not tolerate threats of violence, unwelcome sexual attention, slurs or hate speech, including hurtful comments involving race, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, physical appearance, disability, age and religious or political belief, whether they are personal or general. Anyone asked to stop any harassing behavior is expected to comply immediately.
If you can’t help make the world (at least during our festival) a welcoming, harassment-free and supportive place for all characters and humans alike, Pictoplasma is not for you. Whoever violates these rules will be expelled from the festival and conference without a refund at the discretion of the organiser.
If the behavior of anyone makes you (or anyone else) feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible. Incidents can be reported to any member of festival staff or the festival and conference team at the info desks onsite, where we will be happy to help, contact security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe.
Pictoplasma is committed to values of diversity and accessibility for everyone.
We do our best to provide visitors access to all venues, rooms, events, information and services. Pictoplasma is, however, dependent on the infrastructure of the festival’s various venues.
The main venue (Silent Green) is fully wheelchair accessible with wheelchair-accessible restrooms. Venue staff are there to help with mobility issues and elevator use.
However, some smaller parts of the exhibition and art interventions might be located in remote areas of the venue that are not accessible for wheelchair users.
VISITORS WITH HEARING IMPAIRMENT
Pictoplasma is a festival for visual culture, and many of the works presented in the exhibitions have no audio component. If you have hearing impairment and need support that goes beyond your hearing devices, please get in touch with us in advance via help (at) pictoplasma (dot) com and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs. Unfortunately, we cannot provide sign language interpretation at this stage.
VISITORS WITH PHOTOSENSITIVE EPILEPSY
Please note that some of the short films featured in the animation screenings have flashing effects that are potentially triggering to people with photosensitive epilepsy. Films with stroboscopic effects or rapid edits are marked with an icon in the printed screening programmes.
Between us, the Pictoplasma team shares a wide pool of languages – please ask our staff if you require assistance in a language other than English, and we will do our best to accommodate you. However, please note that Pictoplasma’s main festival and conference language is English.
We will have a dedicated contact person for support and assistance at the information desk of the main conference venue. This person can provide information about the accessibility situation at all festival venues as well as programme details relating to volume and lighting effects (stroboscope), or any other situations that could affect sensitive individuals. You are more than welcome to contact us anytime prior to the event at help (at) pictoplasma (dot) com with any questions you may have.
