SAFER SPACE POLICY
Safer spaces are authentic, comforting, inspiring and welcoming for everyone.
A safer space is where people can feel safe being themselves without feeling like they need to be highly sensitive about their surrounding.
We want our communities to be aware that an event space has to be a place where segregation, microaggressions and discrimination are not tolerated. We hope that one day the majority of our communities can be proactive in helping make this a safer space too.
People attending our events are asked to be aware of their language and behaviour and to think about whether it might be offensive to others. This is no space for microaggressions, violence, for touching people without their consent, for being intolerant of someone’s religious beliefs or lack thereof, for being creepy, sleazy, racist, ageist, sexist, heterosexist, fat-phobic, trans-phobic, able-bodiest, classist, sizeist or any other behaviour or language that may perpetuate oppression.
By attending Drastic Social events, you agree to:
- respect other people’s wills, being respectful and aware of personal, physical and emotional boundaries.
- always get verbal consent (these words — “YES, you can”) before touching someone’s body or belongings.
- respect people’s opinions, beliefs, differing states of being and differing points of view, disengage when feel intimidated
- be empathetic and considerate, be aware that your actions will affect others despite what your intentions maybe
- take responsibility for your own safety and get help from our faciltators if you need it
Here are the rules we kindly ask you to respect when attending a Drastic Social event.
The management reserves the right to alter these rules and regulations as they see fit.
You are encouraged to read and study our safer space policy before attending our events.

At Drastic Social events, there will be a great amount of social media posting, sharing, reposting, tagging. If any of our guests oppose to having their face documented, we will recommend them to be seated at a “no filming area”, however it will often be further away from the performance area due to the nature of the incidences take place(updated 26/5/2021).
