Expectations From Travellers
When you get an invite to join the Roadtrip, you are not just invited to be a co-traveler - instead, it's your invite to become part of a huge ever-growing family of terrific individuals from across continents & professions, exchanging inspiration, explorations with a knack for giving back to the community.
With this invitation, come responsibility and some expectations from the team. If you choose to accept this invitation, you will have to adhere to the following guidelines:
RTX aims to be a safe space always. You will have to respect boundaries of your co-creators and any behaviour indicating otherwise will not be tolerated.
Rights of Admission Reserved - For creativity to flourish, good vibes and a positive attitude is so important. RTX project does not entertain bad vibes & negativity, conversations behind the back, etc. and reserves the right to ask a creator to leave the project if such a pattern occurs.
As a collaborator & co-creator, you as a Creator will tangibly contribute to the projects and drive it to closure. Team work makes the dream work, right?
You are requested to not come to the project as a guest, but as part of the core team. Which means instead of complaining about the punctured tire, you will take a lead to fix it.
Important - You will add value to ideas and dreams of your co-travelers. Give before you take!
Create collaboration opportunities for others, dream & conspire for bigger #collaboration
Be Creative. Be Life of RTX. Be Creatively Ethical.
At any point in time, something or someone bothers you, you will come to the team directly for a resolution. We are great at making things happen & even greater at listening. Trust us!
PlEDGE TO KEEP CREATING MAGIC ON AND AFTER THE ROADTRIP
RTX has enabled 80+ collaborations out of which only 20 collaborations happened on the journey while 60+ collaborations happened after the Roadtrip. The idea lives on, the essence is to create and collaborate through mindful projects and that is where we believe, the real magic lies. We would love for you to keep the collab vibe alive and create interesting things together, even after RTX!
RTX IN ODISHA
JANuary 10 — 22, 2019
Campaign - #Find The X
This season of RTX is created around the theme - Find the X!
We all travel for a reason, we all create for a reason. Sometimes our X is internal, for example we travel to create stories, get perspectives and inspiration — while sometimes our X is external when we travel for adventure or culture.
Externally, X is used to mark the treasure on a map. Internally X is the reason that makes us travel (or create). Our Purpose. Each destination on the Roadmap has it’s own X too! (we will tell you about that later)
