Due to COVID-19, our Spring Weekend festival will be held virtually this year on April 10, 2021.
This will be a new experience for us all — and we want to make sure that it is a safe and amazing day of performances for everyone.Here’s what we expect from our audience and community:
Spring Weekend has always been an event that gives our community a moment to enjoy wonderful music, celebrate the academic year and come together as a community to show our love and care for one another and for the space we all share.
Given the nature of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it goes without saying Spring Weekend will look different this year, but as is always the case, the safety and wellbeing of the community is the number one priority. In light of this global crisis, we should feel an even greater responsibility towards maintaining the safety and wellbeing of our community, both on Brown’s campus and in the city of Providence. This means following all of the university’s COVID-19 guidelines out of respect for each other and for this city we call home.
To be ignorant towards community safety guidelines is to actively harm the community at large. By committing to our safety standards, you are committing to enjoying the privilege of Spring Weekend without mobilizing such privilege in a harmful manner.
Spring Weekend should be a good time for all as well as a time when we are supporting our Brown community by adhering to health and safety guidelines. In attending Spring Weekend, I agree that:
I will socialize with ONLY members of my pod and keep my mask on and social distance if encountering or socializing with anyone outside of my pod. I will look to the level to understand guidelines for social interactions.
I will keep myself safe and avoid necessitating medical resources made scarce by the demands of the pandemic.
I recognize that breaking these guidelines will put the community at risk and doing so may also result in accountability measures.
I have the responsibility to keep members of my community safe by following these guidelines, in the weeks leading up to and during Spring Weekend.
Spring Weekend is never about any one individual; it is about our community as a whole. Actions that privilege the individual over the community, namely violation of Brown’s safety guidelines, communicate a disrespect for others. Anyone who calls themself a member of Brown’s community should hold these guidelines and community values true in all their behaviors.
