PICTOPLASMA IN TIMES OF COVID-19
The current COVID-19 outbreak has forced us to reschedule the 16th Pictoplasma 2020 from May to August. To postpone was definitely not an easy decision for us to take, but given the circumstances and following the request of local authorities it wasn’t really a decision: there was no alternative.
However, we are confident that rescheduling will allow us all to experience the festival in all it’s glory and as intended, possibly even better: We remain in full preparation mode, and still have plenty of great news to share about the overall program, additional workshops, accompanying panels, the all-new attendee character forum, and an extended line-up of performances and art happenings. We look forward to welcoming you in August, when sunny Berlin shows its best face!
Stay safe and wash your hands,
Peter, Lars and the entire Pictoplasma team
FOR ATTENDEES HOLDING A TICKET AND UNABLE TO JOIN US IN AUGUST: REFUND POSSIBLE FOR CANCELLATIONS BEFORE APRIL 8!
Due to the unforeseeable circumstances that have lead to the rescheduling, Pictoplasma offers ticket holders full refunds* and waives the usually applying 50,- EURO cancellation fee for all cancellations reaching us before the 8th of April.
* Depending on attendee’s initial method of payment, a small percentage of the refund (beyond our control) might be withheld by the company handling the refund.
A HAND FULL OF ANSWERS TO/
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, religious or political belief, age, 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 organizer.
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 though dependent on the infrastructure of the festival’s various venues.
FURTHER INFORMATION TO FACILITATE THE PARTICIPATION OF VISITORS WITH DISABILITIES
The main venues (Babylon on Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, Pfefferberg Haus 13, Kunsthaus ACUD, and Silent Green) are wheelchair accessible with wheelchair-accessible restrooms. Venue staff are there to help with mobility issues and elevator use.
We regret that very few of the exhibition spaces of the Character Walk in Mitte are wheelchair-accessible (indicated with an icon in the program, both on our website and in the printed programs distributed throughout the festival, to help make navigation as enjoyable as possible). All others are accessed via at least a few steps, and none provide wheelchair-accessible restrooms.
DEAF VISITORS AND HARD OF HEARING
Pictoplasma is a festival for visual culture, and many of the works presented in the exhibitions have no audio component. Anyone wearing hearing devices can switch to the channel of an audio induction loop broadcast for all lectures and screenings at Babylon and at the symposium at Silent Green. Unfortunately, we cannot provide sign language interpretation at this stage. Should you require further support or assistance please get in touch with us in advance to make arrangements via help (at) pictoplasma (dot) com and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.
VISITORS WITH PHOTOSENSITIVE EPILEPSY
Please note that some of the short films featured in the animation screenings, and some of the visuals projected in the exhibition at Silent Green, at the party at YAAM, and at the Aïsha Devi performance 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 programs.
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, Babylon, Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. This person can provide information about the accessibility situation at all festival venues as well as program 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.
