  • If you remove/discard/lose the ticket wristband after the first day, you will need to purchase a new ticket for the second day of the event. The badge is not a ticket! If you wish to remove the wristband on the evening of the first day and then wear it on the second day, do so carefully and under no circumstances discard your wristband!
  • The wristband is valid for the number of days of the event specified in the ticket purchased by you. If you buy a ticket for two days, you will receive a wristband for two days of the event, if you buy a ticket for 1 day – you will receive a 1 day wristband.

7. AI & Stolen artworks 

  • We are against stolen artwork from other creators as well as pieces generated by artificial intelligence, so it is forbidden to sell products at the A&C Alley that include artwork that was not ethically sourced. We are against AI, so at A&C Alley, it is prohibited to sell any goods created with the help of AI. 
  • The A&C Alley coordinators may request proof of commercial rights or verification that your items are original works, either during the selection process or at any time afterward. Failure to provide this proof upon request may result in removal from the participation list.
