Awareness & Accessibility

Sensible  Umgebung

Pop-Kultur is a space for everyone!
We promote and hope that many different cultural identities meet at Pop-Kultur and that no one is excluded from our offerings.
By employing a diverse awareness team of experts in their respective fields and an accessible infrastructure, we strive to create a receptive and safe environment for all visitors.

We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind or its relativisation.
We are of the view what constitutes a boundary violation is defined by the person whose boundary has been violated.
With this in mind, Pop-Kultur is committed to representing the interests of all guests.

Our awareness team will be available before and during the festival to answer any questions:
