In partnership with the Calgary Sexual Health Centre, SASS will coordinate Safer Space workshops for management and staff of music venues, theatres, galleries, and other organizations within the arts community.
Workshops take on topics such as active consent, responding to disclosures, and how to be an active bystander. Participants in these workshops can expect to leave with tools to address conflict, clarify boundaries, and understand the role that bystanders can play.
Organizations and venues who have completed the workshops and have committed to writing to following our SASS Guidelines will be awarded our SASS Gold Seal, which they may display in their establishment. This Gold Seal signifies to patrons that management and staff are accountable to the safety of their space.
If you represent an organization or venue and are interested in taking a workshop, please contact us.
