About 

Our venue

Efterskolen Epos (Boarding school for 15-17 year olds)

This place has plenty of all kinds of fabulous spaces, and it is surrounded by beautiful nature. Since it is a boarding school, there are workshop rooms and hang out areas. There is a huge grass field for community play time and outside workshops, a fireplace, a hang out room with piano, a forest, swimmable beach 700 meters from the school. We have physical games, board games and much more… The rooms are mostly double bunk bed rooms and triple rooms with a bunkbed for 2 people and one single bed. There are a few single rooms. Most of the rooms can also fit 1-2 extra matresses on the floor. The plenty toilets and showers are on the hallways, shared by all participants. 

A supermarket with most groceries, freshly baked bread and cakes, accesories, and more, is right by the school.

There is free wifi at the venue, but please do not sit and work/communicate online in the shared spaces, keep this to your room/tent. We wish you lots of LIVE connection with those amazing human beings who will be right there with you! What needs are you meeting online? How could you meet them with us? What would it take of you and us?

Free parking by the venue.

 

Food!

The food will be a vegan/vegetarian organic buffet cooked by the amazing Harry Edgar Kloser-Pitcher. We will also provide gluten- and sugarfree alternatives if you need/prefer that!

About

Venue rules and culture

  • Treat others with kindness and respect, including respecting “No” and “Stop”.
  • No smoking/vaping allowed on the domain, please go for a long walk outside the Heerlijckyt premises instead, out of care for others. If you are not willing to take care of our communityhealth and role modelling for our youth in this way, this might not be the festival for you.
  • If you drink alcohol, do not consume so much, that you cannot keep acting with consideration of others (do not get intoxicated).
  • The festival is a completely drug-free zone, so no hash, marihuana or other drugs allowed on/during the festival.
  • No candles or incense is allowed in the buildings due to fire regulations.
  • Curious to see what happens if you leave your phone in the room / car for the day, to really be with what is arising every moment? how can you relate to reality right in front of you, with feeling, healing and playfulness?
  • Support others and Ask for support. We invite you to practice asking for support from others, maybe more than what you are used to.
  • Long term awareness: Sometimes the open hearted energy can get intimate – beware of increased risk of actions you might regret later. How to weave your authenticity together with your integrity? 

 

Additional statements from participants:

Below are some answers from various festival participants to the question: “What would support care and respect at the festival”: 

  • “Knowing that all participants are aware of how to treat others with respect and will do so. If participants (including children) act in harmful ways, the community will step in to stop the harm, and do so skillfully.”
  • “Having someone to go to when feeling upset or in need of support “
  • “As a newcomer feeling welcomed, being heard and included by the experienced participants”
  • “Starting and ending on time “
  • “When the community supports the facilitators in maintaining the structure and the flow of the community meetings.”

  • “Being honest”
  • “Learning how to deal with my own reactions in supportive and loving ways”
