Linda Hayden writes:

Action Against Sexual Violence Ireland (AASVI) are looking to team up with a sponsor to launch a visibility campaign around consent at Electric Picnic this year.

It would be a collaboration to raise awareness and normalise consent in environments that are statistically proven to have high volumes of sexual assault. Generally minor cases but also major instances too.

If we can empower people to be consent positive then it will be a step towards combating the levels of sexual violence that occur at events such as festivals, concerts etc.

AASVI’s campaign will consist of:

1. A stall with volunteers capable of starting conversations to normalise conversations around consent

2. Stickers with friendly marketing focused on normalising consent

3. Sign up sheets to a leaflet with consent education pieces attached.

If your company would like to partner with us to help make events like Electric Picnic safer, and more enjoyable  for everyone, please contact us at chair@aasvireland.ie.

Bliain na Gaeilge and Festival Republic are delighted to announce that they will be collaborating on some special feature events at Electric Picnic 2018 in Stradbally, Co. Laois, 31st August – 2nd September.

As part of this collaboration, there will be an official Gaeltacht camping area founded on the festival grounds.

There will be space provided for two hundred people in this designated camping area, in which Irish will be the common language of the residents.

Tickets for Electric Picnic 2018 are sold out, but those who have already purchased tickets will be able to stay in this new designated Irish language camping space.

Because of limited spaces, campers will have to register to stay in ‘An Ghaeltacht’ beforehand, at electricpicnic.ie.  Applications will open for ticketholders at 10am. tomorrow,  Tuesday July 24.
