safer spaces

"Safe space" as a concrete concept for an event cannot exist; everyone has different needs and requirements and it is impossible for one event/collective/party to promise this for each individual and every situation and every situation that might arise.

A SAFER space is a step towards being MORE aware and safer, referring to somewhere where people feel not just physically, but emotionally and psychologically more secure, valued and comfortable to be themselves. It ought to take into account power structures, intersecting and layered individual experiences, and privileges.
