By submitting this application for consideration of participation in VIBES Edmond’s First Thursday, I agree to receive communications from the Edmond Fine Arts Institute’s VIBES coordinator in the form of emails and newsletters and permit the release of my contact information to participating Downtown Edmond Businesses. I release and discharge the Fine Arts Institute of Edmond, its board of directors and volunteers, the City of Edmond, downtown Edmond Businesses and other sponsors and officials for all claims of damages, demands, actions whatsoever in any manner arising or growing out of my participation in this event. This release and waiver extends to all claims of every kind or nature whatsoever, foreseen or unforeseen, known or unknown.

I attest and verify that I have full knowledge of the risk involved in participation at a public event.

I understand that an event may have to be canceled due to inclement weather and do not expect to receive any compensation in that circumstance.
