Dear participant, please read this entire document carefully! On registration you are agreeing to accept these conditions of participation. There are two parts. Both parts are important to read and understand.
We have developed a hygiene concept that must be adhered to by everyone involved. The current rules will be announced on site. In principle, the following applies: KlezWeCan events are off-limits to anyone who has recently had COVID-19, has tested positive for COVID-19 or is exhibiting typical COVID-19 symptoms, as well as to anyone who comes from, lives in or has recently visited current high-risk areas and had contact with affected people there. The current conditions of travel apply as well as general local regulations.
Physical distancing rules must be observed at all times. Masks are to be worn as required – please follow safety instructions as they are announced. Physical and social contact is to be kept to a necessary minimum. A minimum distance of at least 1.5 meters is to be observed whenever possible.
Please observe all general hygiene guidelines: wash/disinfect your hands regularly, observe sneezing/coughing etiquette and avoid physical contact (shaking hands, hugging, etc.). Please note: we are required to use the address you provide when registering to check whether you come from a region that is subject to travel restrictions. If this is the case, you will not be allowed to participate. If you have already registered, your paid fee will be refunded. Your contact details will be kept for up to four weeks after the event so that chains of infection can be tracked and handed over to the responsible health department on request. If we have to cancel an event due to local regulations, you will be reimbursed any fees already paid.
is KlezWeCan e.V., Nordstr. 55, 99089 Erfurt.
After your registration you will receive an email request for payment. The workshop fee must then be transferred by the specified deadline.
The workshop will be taught primarily in German.
You will get information on the daily schedule and about how the workshop is organised in advance. Changes to the daily schedule may occur during the workshop itself. Please note that workshop content and leadership are subject to change.
Each participant is responsible for their own accommodation and food expenses. Exceptions are some specific events such as the ‘KlezmerMusikFreizeit’. The respective conditions are named in the workshop description. You bear the costs for travel to and from the hotel yourself.
The number of participants per workshop is limited. Preference will be given to participants who registered early. In the event of cancellation, a processing fee equal to the workshop participation fee is due. This also applies if you have not paid the fee in full before the workshop starts, if you fail to attend the workshop, or if you leave early of your own free will.
If the minimum number is not reached, KlezWeCan e.V. reserves the right to cancel the workshop. In such a case, the workshop fees paid will be fully refunded to your account within four weeks. We recommend taking out seminar cancellation insurance in order to be reimbursed for travel expenses and course costs in the event that workshop participation is prevented.
Further reductions outside of the scale of fees listed in the workshop description are possible in exceptional cases. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
