EAVE Safe Space

EAVE aims to create practices that make everyone participating at EAVE workshops feel safe.

We wish to take responsibility of difficult situations and handle conflicts instead of tolerating them.
You have a right to an inclusive and safe environment and communication. You are responsible for your part of the safety of the space that you use with others.


ASSUMING AND MAKING GENERALIZATIONS

It is natural to make assumptions about other people, but it is important to acknowledge that and to listen and keep an open mind.
Don’t generalize your experiences to apply to others. Speak only on your experiences.
You cannot know about another person’s experience on moving in the world, their gender, sexuality, class background, life situation or identity. All differences are not visible: do not talk about minorities assuming that people who belong to them are not present.
Understand that despite good intentions, everyone makes a mistake sometimes. Take responsibility over your mistakes and apologize. Look for information, and do not assume that people who belong to minorities will enlighten you.


RESPECT

Be respectful of everyone you meet at EAVE workshops. Do not question diversity, rather let people be themselves. Take into consideration differing opinions, beliefs and points of view acknowledging that indivisible human worth belongs to everyone. Recognize and acknowledge things that you do not know much about or that you don’t have experience on.
Do not harass anyone verbally, by prying on their private matters, by touching, by staring or by silencing. Respect everyone’s physical and emotional boundaries.


COMMUNICATION

We aim to give space for everyone to be heard, with respect to others.
Make an effort to speak in a way that everyone can follow. When possible, use language that doesn’t exclude and aim to discuss and act without attacking others.
When there is photography or filming in our events, we offer a chance to participate without being filmed or photographed. If you want to film or photograph in our events, ask for permission.


ONLINE ENVIRONMENTS

These guidelines apply to online environments as well. Comment on EAVE’s social media by using respectful language. Inappropriate comments that attack persons or groups of people will be deleted.
