The Lava Dome is a resource listings managed by Volcano Theatre in Toronto. We're a not-for-profit arts organization trying to do good things for our community. As such, we have no tolerance for:

Hate / Violence / Discrimination
You know what we mean, and it's 100% not okay.

Messing up people's places and property, misrepresenting yourself and your offerings, being misleading, impolite, and disrespectful to other members of the arts community... don't be THAT person.

Abusing the Service
The Lava Dome's purpose is pretty straightforward and easy to use. Don't mess with the system, don't post stuff that doesn't fall under one of the four categories.

We have a small staff, limited resources, and no time to moderate bad behaviour or listen to excuses. If you violate any of the terms of this service, you'll lose your membership. End o' story.

Be good to each other and do good things.
