Event Details

In December 2021, Addie Tahl, Pauline Massimo, Gestalta, Caritia, and Sophia Rose launched a long-term project which consists of almost 10 hours of material documenting the abuse of power and the harm it does to people doing ropes. #InRopesToo is an archive of knowledge, breadcrumbs, and a look at the systems of power that are in place.

Karada House stands in solidarity with this project and would like to continue the conversation it has started. In this session, the #InRopesToo members will talk about systems, structures, and practices that cause harm and protect those responsible. The goal is not revenge or outing, but education, prevention, and healing.

Content Warning: Whereas this discussion is more about systems, it will be impossible to not also talk about abuse and harm.


About #InRopesToo:

#InRopesToo is a project created to provide healing space through the intersecting stories of four individuals whose lives crossed in the rope field. People who lost touch, due to colliding disparities and interpersonal dynamics, steeped in misogyny, sexism, ableism, capitalism, and financial inequality, all of which divide and overwhelm people who are seeking community and belonging. They were brought back together by a simple question — “why are you not talking to each other?”

This project is their collective way of returning to themselves, after realizing that the desire to support and be present for each other is still there, and that the harm that took place was — and continues to be — systemic.
