Fastaval is a big place with a lot of people for almost a week. Our participants come from all over the world across age, education, gender, and sexualities. Some people come here to play a lot of roleplaying games, others prefer Magic the Gathering and some are just here to hang out with old and new friends. But whoever you are and no matter why you are here, it is important that you feel safe – both as a participant and as an organizer.
On this page, you can read about how the Fastaval organization keeps you safe and how we handle conflicts and individuals who exhibit problematic behavior. This page tells you who to contact if you have a concern or an issue you want us to know about. And who can help you before, during, and after Fastaval.
NB! Fastaval's main organizers act on the principle that we only get involved if you contact us directly; by writing us an email, via the Safety Hosts, or if you contact a member of the main organizer group personally. We do not enter conflicts or ban individuals based on rumors or information given to us on social media. Therefore it is very important that you contact us directly if you feel unsafe at Fastaval.
No issue is too big or too small. We want to talk to you and we want to know how we create a safe Fastaval for everyone.
Love Fastaval's main organizers
You are always welcome to get in touch with Fastaval’s main organizers. This is of course also the case if you have a conflict or an issue with a specific individual or group.
If this is the case please write us at email@example.com. When we receive your mail we will right away enter into a dialogue with you about what is going to happen next. Often the main organizers will want to keep in touch a couple of times to know if there is any further information about the conflict. It may happen that you have friends or know of someone who has a similar issue with the same person or who can support your side of the story. In that case, we will contact them and hope they will be willing to share that information with us. When we have all the details in place we will discuss what to do at our next official meeting.
When the main organizers have come to a decision, Louise Skriver Lægteskov and Ole Sørensen will send back our reply.
We cannot promise that we will handle your issue or try to resolve the conflict in precisely the way you want us to. But we promise to always listen openminded and to treat your feelings with respect. We strive to create a welcoming space and accommodate your emotional needs at Fastaval.
Fastaval's main organizers consists of volunteers and does not adhere to any legal form of confidentiality. But we do have the moral principle that every inquiry is treaded confidentiality and that information about personal issues or conflicts is never disclosed outside the main organizer group.
NB: In cases of very serious offenses and behavior that put other people in physical danger, we will have to involve the Danish authorities
