Not surprisingly, when we are tackling the goal of global sustainability, great complexity and conflict are often involved. SLF’s program criteria aims to be inclusive of a diverse range of progressive approaches, while recognising the appropriate scale and speed required to meaningfully respond to the crisis we face.
SLF uses the following three core elements when selecting Festival Events, Exhibitors and Partners.
SLF screens each organisation associated with the Festival. This process sets a minimum standard that helps with the selection process.
SLF gathers advice from a variety of community groups, peak bodies and specialists about programming directions and content.
SLF seeks views and opinions from visitors, exhibitors, volunteers and presenters as to Festival process, programming, facilities and experiences, and endeavours to incorporate feedback into future planning.
