In December 2020 Festival of Voices received the Rainbow Tasmania Tourism Accreditation. We are committed to offering an inclusive environment for both festival patrons and employees.
Being a diverse and inclusive organisation goes to the very heart of our work, and supports our aim to bring the community together through music.
With diversity comes a wider range of perspectives and depth of understanding for all those in our communities. Festival of Voices supports the right of equality, fairness and decency for all.
The Rainbow Accreditation aligns with and strengthens Festival of Voices’ values, in particular;
- At Festival of Voices we treat every artist, patron, volunteer and employee with respect and dignity
- At Festival of Voices we aim for artists, patrons, volunteers, employees and stakeholders to feel 100% comfortable when dealing with us
- At Festival of Voices we’re committed to making sure that our events and our workplaces are inclusive and enjoyable for all.
