YOUtopia is an amazing city, full of possibility, adventure and - dare we say it? - RISK.
This is a temporary city built by its citizens with only the most minimal rules to support public safety. SDCAP does not review or scrutinize much of what will appear at the Event and we take NO responsibility for the safety of anything participants bring including Art Installations and Theme Camp infrastructure - or anything else for that matter. That doesn’t mean we don’t care… we do care - A LOT - and we encourage all citizens to speak up if they see unsafe conditions, but we also encourage you to know your boundaries and to make conscious choices about what is safe for you.
REMEMBER - when you buy a ticket YOU SIGN A COMPREHENSIVE WAIVER OF LIABILITY (and you’ll give a signed hard-copy to the Gate attendant) that means you YOU TAKE 100% OF THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY HARM WHICH MAY COME TO YOU AND/OR YOUR PROPERTY at the Event. You’re responsible even if the harm is caused by a participant, volunteer or a failure of the Event organizers. Take this seriously! You’re in charge of your experience and you’re responsible for whatever happens whether it’s amazing, just O.K. or lousy.
We also encourage folks who choose to bring valuable equipment or infrastructure to the Event to remember that it’s going to be exposed to the elements and the sometimes random actions of 3500 people (and, if you're plugging into Event-provided-power, to a temporary electrical grid) so having insurance may be right for you.
