Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When and where is Tethered Together happening?
A: Our first event is scheduled for March 15-18, 2019 at the Crowne Plaza Warwick in Providence, Rhode Island. We plan to host annually into the foreseeable future and have this space guaranteed to our group for years to come!
Q: What’s the schedule? When does this spectacular rope circus start and end?
A: We’re working on the class grid right now! A general overview can be found here. In brief, classes, meetups and collaborative art installations start the afternoon of Friday, March 15th and run through Sunday lunchtime with parties and special events each night! We’ll say goodbye to friends who can’t stay over a third night at our closing ceremony and then gather again to build a non-hierarchical kinky teaching and learning environment called a Ropenspace. We’ll share, learn and afterparty till that last rope hits the floor in the playspace at the stroke of Midnight Sunday night. Glass slippers may be provided.
Q: How do I register for your event?
A: You’ll need to buy a ticket before the day of the event – they will NOT be available at the door. Tickets are available right here! You’ll have to meet some basic criteria: you’ll need to be at or over the age of 18 on the first day of our event and you’ll need to have a valid legal ID physically with you to show us that matches the name on your ticket. If you register for a ticket with a “placeholder” type name, you will either be asked to pay a transfer fee, or the cost difference of the ticket from when you purchased it to when the name change occured – whichever you prefer. You’ll also need to sign our event liability waiver and conduct policy at the door.
Q: I can’t find my ticket purchase receipt/event confirmation?
A: We are finding out that it’s pretty common for our Eventbee receipts to head to spam or junk folders or, for Gmail users, the promotions tab. Please check there and write us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can’t find yours and we’ll get you set up!
Q: How do I book a room?
A: Our room block opens 9/10/18 and instructions will be available here at that point! Rooms (king or double/double, single through quad occupancy) will be $145 per night plus taxes and fees with a two-night Friday/Saturday minimum and booking details will be handled by our host hotel.
Q: If I’m flying in, how do I get from airport to the hotel and back?
A: The hotel is located 2 miles from the T.F. Green airport. Most folks will choose to take the complimentary shuttle service (Note: gratuity accepted and appreciated) provided by the hotel to and from the airport!
Q: What happens if I have a ticket and then find out I can’t attend the event?
A: We offer ticket refunds and transfers according to the rules outlined in our Official Refunds and Transfers policy!
Q: How can I help?
A: We have an open call for both presenters and volunteers for our event! Click those links to head over to our applications! We also have sponsorship opportunities available for individuals and businesses supportive of our mission. Contact us at email@example.com to learn more.
Q: Can two women really run a rope convention?
A: Yes. You are on their website right now. This one is on here as a joke because it’s better to laugh than cry about these things, but yes, we have been asked various versions of this question. The answer is emphatic and obvious and coming March 15-18, 2019. We are so excited! You really don’t want to miss it!
