Incitement Manifesto

Creating the best possible experience & the biggest possible impact

Incitement is organized around the globe, currently in around 40 countries. To ensure the best possible experience for your event attendees and create the biggest impact possible, it’s necessary to establish a set of rules, a status quo if you will; this is the Incitement manifesto.

The Incitement manifesto is a set of rules for organizing Incitement events. These rules are mandatory and non-negotiable for all event organizers. Because we are all responsible to make sure that Incitement vision is being cultivated throughout.

Incitement Manifesto Contents

General

Carrying out the Incitement brand personality

The guidelines outlined on this website are an integral part of Incitement’s global brand personality. Organizing an Incitement event means you commit to applying all the guidelines as listed on this page.

Vision & Mission

Incitement’s mission is to inspire local communities through powerful events, and to activate local communities to spread positivity & create social impact through Inpactor.

Purpose of the event

Every event should be focused on providing inspiration and motivation, and encourage attendees to take action towards creating positive impact for themselves, and society in general. Incitement events are not driven by any other agenda than what is listed on this page.

Inpactor

Inpactor is Incitement’s way to facilitate tangible, positive impact in the world. As an organizer of an Incitement event, it is your responsibility to guide your event attendees towards signing up on Inpactor and support them in creating this positive impact.

You are allowed to raise funds for your event via Inpactor only. You cannot use any other fundraising/crowdfunding websites, such as Kickstarter.com, or IndieGoGo. All money raised from your event’s campaign must directly go back into organizing your respective event.

Profitability

If you are a 1st Degree License Holder, under no circumstances can you use an Incitement event to generate a profit, nor can you use an Incitement event to raise funds for charities, or any other organization that is not listed and approved in Inpactor.

If you are a 2nd Degree License Holder, you can generate profits from your Incitement Event. However, you can not use your Incitement Event to raise funds for charities, or any other organisation that is not listed and approved in Inpactor.

Naming

All Incitement events are named after a geographical location. This could be a city, area or neighborhood, or street. When you name your event you must comply with the naming guidelines here.

Co-organizing

Co-organizing is not allowed. Incitement is a stand-alone event. You may not integrate or otherwise associate your Incitement event with any other conference or event.

Admission

If you are a 1st Degree License holder, your Incitement event should be freely accessible for everyone, hence you cannot charge an admission fee, or any other form of compensation upon entrance.

If you are 2nd Degree License holder, you may charge an admission fee. For every event you charge an admission fee, you will be required to organise a free event.

If you are 2nd Degree License holder, you may charge an admission fee. For every event you charge an admission fee, you will be required to organise a free event.

You may only charge a maximum go USD 100 or the equivalent of USD 100 in your currency.

Attendance

The maximum amount of attendees at your Incitement event should be 100 people. You can can apply for a 2nd degree license after you have successfully organized 3 Incitement events within a time span of 1,5 years, as the allowance of hosting more than 100 people comes when a 2nd degree license is attained.

Length

Your Incitement event may not exceed 5 (five) hours in length.

Location

Incitement distributes 1 (one) license based on location per applicant. The events must happen at the same jurisdication for which you received the license.

Incitement event organizers can only sell Incitement(EventName) branded merchandise. The design of the merchandise must comply with all the logo & branding guidelines that apply on organizing an Incitement event.

Licensing

License holder

The Licensee has to be the lead organizer for the Incitement event(s). In the application form for organizing Incitement, the applicant has to state a name of an assistant who will be assisting the applicant in organizing the event.

If the organizer has a license to organize regular events but wishes to stop, their assistant cannot takeover the organization of these events. The assistant can however apply for a special license to become a regular organizer of the Incitement event in that particular area. To be eligible to apply for that special license, you must prove that you have assisted in organizing Incitement events more than 4 times. If Incitement finds that the event is being organized by someone other than the license holder or the assistant (in the special circumstance where the license holder is unable to organize the event), Incitement reserves the right to revoke the license.

Validity

If you are a 1st Degree Licensee, your Incitement Event license is valid for 6 months from the date of its approval, or until the conclusion of the Incitement Event, whichever comes first. A new application has to be made for subsequent events (depending on the type of license granted to you).

If you are a 2nd Degree Licensee, your Incitement Event license is valid for a year from the date of its approval. During this year, you are required to organize a minimum of 4 events.

Transferability

Incitement licenses are non transferable. If you have an approved license to organize an Incitement event, you can not transfer that license to any other person. If another person wants to organize Incitement in your city, that person will have to apply for a new license to organize the event.

Branding

Incitement Logo

Your Incitement logo should follow the Incitement logo guidelines as mentioned here and should be used to represent your event at all times, in all your copy, messaging, logos, etc. You may never use a stand-alone Incitement logo without mentioning the location at which the event is being held.

Incitement naming references

Your event name should be written as Incitement (EventName), and not just Incitement. The word “Incitement” should be entirely capitalized, and the (EventName) should follow as two words to your location-based event name (for example: IncitementKualaLumpur). This is also how you should refer to your event at all times, in all your copy, messaging, logos, etc.

Naming abbreviations

You cannot abbreviate the name of your event, or otherwise alter the name of your event after approval. You should always refer to your event with the name you were approved for.

You must refer to it as Incitement Amsterdam” at all times, in your copy, messaging, logos, etc.

Programme

Theme

You must pick an overarching theme for your Incitement event. This theme should be abstract, and will also be the title/tagline for your event. In essence it will let your attendees know what the can expect of your event.
