Are there any childcare options at the festival?
Our venue, UTS Business School has numerous quiet nooks and ‘break out’ areas perfect for kids and their carers to rest and recuperate between sessions for the duration of our festival.
Babes in arms are welcome in all sessions. In the case of an extended period of crying, we ask that you be mindful of other participants and pop out of the room to settle babies as required.
Children are welcome to attend sessions with a parent or caregiver. It is at the discretion of the parent/caregiver to assess the suitability of subject material, including swearing and sexual/violent content. Children attending sessions will be asked to keep talking to a whisper.
Breastfeeding is welcome in all areas of the festival.
Will I be photographed or recorded at the festival?
We will be audio- and video-recording many sessions – including audience Q&As – so you may be recorded. We will also be taking photographs for reporting on, and future promotion of, the festival. Your attendance assumes that incidental photographs for non-commercial purposes may be taken and utilised by us and others. If you wish to not be photographed, please advise our roving photographer and they will do their best not to include you in any photos. Please note we are unable to guarantee that you will not be included in the background of a photo.
Can I volunteer at the festival?
We have limited openings for volunteers for the FWF18 Sydney. Please fill in the registration form if you are interested.
