What I learned at AEMCON- Part 1
Creating Dynamic Events & Safe Spaces
With 2018 coming to an end, and such movements taking hold such as the “#metoo” and “Call-Out Culture” bringing the awareness of the need for safe spaces and strong communities, AEMCON took it upon themselves to create some amazing panels such as “Moving Beyond Call-Out Culture”, “Harm Reduction 101” and “Creating Dynamic Events” which have really dove deep into these topics with the help of some experts within our industry.
It’s imperative that we take community safety serious and understand that unfortunately abuses have bred under the surface, even in well meaning and loving communities such as the Electronic music scene. By creating strong action plans, speaking with and training your staff, creating protocols, mission statements and a vision for your team and event, you’re equipping your team with the know how of how to create healthy and community oriented events where people can shake off the stresses of every day life, be their authentic weirdo selves and connect with other like-minded individuals looking to do the same!
Please, if you have anything to add, any comments, suggestions, tools, resources or knowledge, feel free to add to our comment section
Much love, and I look forward to all of the “upgrades” that the 2018-2019 festival and event scene has in store,
