A Co-Creator engaged in illegal or unprofessional acts while representing Northern Nights will be asked to leave and will not be accepted again as a Co-Creator. ** REQUIRED GEAR **
Comfortable closed-toed shoes are required for all Co-Creator shifts. We suggest you bring the following: a full water bottle, meals and snacks, a chair, sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen, a flashlight with extra batteries, and warm clothes. It tends to be hot during the day and cold at night. We will provide a snack or meal during your shift, but this is not enough food for the entire festival. ** SUSTAINABILITY *
Carpooling/ride-sharing, using reusable water bottles, plates and utensils, properly sorting recyclable materials, picking up litter, conserving water at sinks and showers, only using eco-friendly soaps, shampoos, and sunscreens, and NOT PEEING IN THE RIVER are all very important ways festival attendees can participate in the continued "greening of Northern Nights."
