Event Details

Building Safe(r) Spaces is a one-day-workshop for anyone who wishes to create a safe(r) space for their respective network/group/community. It does not matter if you actually have a space or if you create temporary safe(r) containers for your events – if you are interested in making them safe(r) and wish to deep dive into what that means for you and how to actually (and very practicably) build them, this workshop is for you.

We will approach the topic from different angles: personal, interpersonal, community, societal, political, ethical, economical and purely practical.

Together we will dive deep into your own wishes, desires and unique circumstances for creating a safe(r) space and work our way through critical intro and outrospection all the way to creating an action plan for you. We will work together as a group and in small breakout rooms to gain perspectives, understandings and allies.

This workshop will not give a “to do list or tell you how to model your space after our or anybody else’s idea of what a safe(r) space is. We will rather try to guide you to evaluate and build your very own idea of a safe(r) space for your needs, ethics and your community.
