FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking is free at the venue for this event. There are five disabled parks at the front of the venue and one at the rear. There is wheelchair access at both entrances. There is also a drive through, drop off area near the entrance. We ask healthy people to leave additional carparks, close to the entrance, vacant so that MECFS sufferers can use them. http://www.scc.org.au/parking/

What can I bring into the event?

You may want to bring your own snacks and drinks if you have strict dietary requirements. Please don't bring anything messy or strongly scented.

Wearing scents?

Please don't wear any strong scented products like perfumes, colognes, essential oils or heavily scented aerosols. Many people with ME/CFS are extremely sensitive to chemicals, and all scents can make them sicker.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No ID required, however Unrest is a documentary that depicts acute pain and suffering, and we recommend mature audiences only.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes, please do print your ticket and bring it with you.
