SAFER SPACE POLICY
Safer spaces are authentic, comforting, inspiring and welcoming for everyone.
A safer space is where people can feel safe being themselves without feeling like they need to be highly sensitive about their surroundings.
We want our communities to know that we do not tolerate segregation, microaggressions and discrimination. We hope that one day most of our communities can be proactive in helping make this a safer space.
People attending our events are asked to be aware of their language and behaviour and consider whether it might offend others. This is no space for microaggressions, violence, touching people without their consent, being intolerant of someone’s religious beliefs or lack thereof, for being creepy, sleazy, racist, ageist, sexist, heterosexist, fat-phobic, trans-phobic, able-bodied, classist, sizeist or any other behaviour or language that may perpetuate oppression.
By attending Drastic Social events, you agree to:
- Respect other people’s wills and be aware of personal, physical and emotional boundaries.
- Always get verbal consent (these words — “YES, you can”) before touching someone’s body or belongings.
- Respect people’s opinions, beliefs, differing states of being and viewpoints. Disengage when you feel intimidated,
- Be empathetic and considerate, be aware that your actions will affect others despite your intentions, and take responsibility for your safety and get help from our facilitators if needed.
We kindly ask you to respect the rules when attending a Drastic Social event.
The management reserves the right to alter these rules and regulations as they see fit.
You should read and study our safer space policy before attending our events.
Our facilitators are present to make this concert experience safe and fun for everyone; please kindly cooperate.
Seats/Standing area – You may be given an assigned area to adhere to due to the distance regulations when it applies. We will gladly help you find your seating/standing area on site.
Identification verification – Your tickets are personalized. Please have your name and phone no. ready at the entrance if gov regulation is involved.
Transfer tickets – Tickets are transferable in exceptional cases.
Entering the premises – Please note the new admission time is 30 minutes before the start of the concert.
Late arrivals – The door opens 30mins before the event starts and closes when the event starts.
Guests arriving late can if necessary, be placed in the back rows at free spaces on the outskirt, provided the minimum distance is observed. If compliance with the minimum distance is not guaranteed because all peripheral seats are occupied, guests arriving late cannot be admitted to the event. In this case, too, there is no entitlement to reimbursement of the entrance fee.
Social Media / Filming/ Recording
We understand the social value of sharing and will try our best to make it ok for everyone. At Drastic Social events, there will be a great amount of social media posting, sharing, reposting, and tagging. If any of our guests oppose having their face documented, we will recommend they be seated in a “no filming area”. However, it will often be further away from the performance area due to the occurrence of the incidents (updated 26/5/2021).
Sliding scale for ticketing
We will offer people a limited amount of affordable tickets at each event.
1 Charity Tickets subsidises 1 affordable ticket for someone in financial straits or simply cannot afford entertainment.
Big thank you to the guests who have supported charity tickets in the past to sponsor our community and people in need.
Food allergies/dietary restrictions
Some of our events experiment with food.
Please inform/enquire us by email before you purchase a ticket to the event, and our team will try our best to accommodate your needs.
