We support Valomerkki campaign
The Valomerkki campaign has raised awareness about the faults of club culture and nightlife revealing how common and widespread multifaceted harassment and discrimination are. As event organizer also X-Rust operates in the local nightlife and we want our effect on the operational culture to be positive.
When we organize events as an association and community, we collectively represent our event, “club”, usually in co-operation with the representatives of the venue. Simultaneously many members of our board and organization altogether are deejays, veejays, music makers, participate in the organizing of events in some other role and of course go to events. Hence the issue affects us and our activities a great deal even though we hardly ever physically operate in traditional club settings.
We want to operate in a way, that can withstand even the closest scrutiny. We do not accept any kind of harrassment or discrimination in any of our activities, from anyone. We take the comfort and well-being of our customers, artists and event organizers seriously and intervene with any issues without delay.
In the future we will take better care that we also communicate these views and inform the public clearly about the actions we take against harassment and discrimination.
We support the Valomerkki campaign and take the questions it has raised and demands it has made seriously in our activities.
On behalf of The X-Rust Organization,
The board of X-Rust
