Danube is the love of music. It is the feeling of experiencing something beautiful and unique together. Sharing the same moments with friends, partners and artists across the world without prejudices.
Our goal at events is to create a space for all guests, artists, helpers and other participants in which it is possible to develop freely in every way.
At our events, we want to create a safer space for everyone. No one should be discriminated against, unfairly criticized, harassed, or emotionally or physically harmed in any way. This can only be achieved if guests and hosts share responsibility. Mindfulness, transparency and communication are the basic requirements for this goal. There is no tolerance for discrimination or abusive behavior in any form at all.
For us, awareness begins with communication. This topic is an essential part of our event-communication. We want to clarify this topic in advance and make people clearly aware of that.
We can make a lot of things possible and better if we know it in advance. There are various ways to get in touch with us. First of all, we inform our guests about the topic at the entrance – here we refer to contacts which can be reached by phone at any time. At the same time, we look forward to an open exchange. The Awareness Team at our events will be present at any time. The team can be recognized by a light blue LED bracelet on the upper arm.
We appeal to all guests to seek contact with us as hosts at events as soon as they feel attacked in their personal safer space or experience this with or about other people. It doesn’t matter why or how this feeling occurs, the focus is on restoring the well-being of the person.
If it is not possible for those affected to speak directly to us as the host, the code word “Is Luisa there” can be used with the entire staff at the event. The staff will react immediately, go to a safe place with the affected person and take individual steps depending on the situation.
The Awareness team works according to established principles. The affected person is always the focus. The person decides to what extent she wants to communicate. Our team will take immediate actions against the person which caused the problem and solve the situation.
The affected person can take part in taking further actions, if wanted.
The biggest similarity of everyone involved at our events is the love of music. This love is fed by musical diversity. It lets us experience something new together every time. We have the same understanding towards guests, artists and other participants. Their diverse input turns an event into an experience. That’s why we welcome everyone to our events and invite them to actively shape experiences together through a lively exchange. Our aim is to achieve the greatest possible diversity with regard to social and cultural characteristics, both for us as hosts and for our guests at each individual event.
We try to give everyone access to our events. Therefore, accessibility on various levels plays an important role for us. In order to achieve this, we are dealing intensively with two main points on this topic.
One is information and communication. We want to inform as many people as possible about our work and attitude. Inclusion is an integral part of this.
We showcase every interaction with inclusion at events. In advance to our events, we look forward to a lively exchange in order to be able to implement any barrier-free events. At events, the Awareness Team is the permanent contact for all matters relating to inclusion and accessibility. In order to ensure a broad understanding of our content, we only communicate in english at our online platforms.
At the same time, it is our aim to always communicate relevant information about events in an easy-to-understand language.
The second topic is participation. We are willing to make it possible for everyone to participate at our events. We therefore implement individual actions to make events as barrier-free as possible.
