Safe Spaces

My Lindy Kraze is committed to providing a safe and harassment-free environment for all attendees. Throughout the weekend we will have designated staff members working hard to make sure everyone feels as comfortable as possible.

To report something, you can:

  • Find a designated staff member – We will make them known to everyone
  • Bring it to the attention of the front desk volunteer or event organizer, who will then get in touch with a team member.
  • E-mail: deemaginations@gmail.com

DECLARATION OF SAFE SPACE

My Lindy Kraze is dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable event experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, ability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form. Event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.

CODE OF CONDUCT IN DETAIL

No forms of harassment will be tolerated. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments (related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, OR religion), sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of workshops or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of event staff immediately, using one of the methods above.

Event staff will be happy to help participants contact the Safety Staffer, organizers, or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance and your safety.

We expect all participants to follow these rules at dance and workshop venues.

BEING A GOOD DANCE EVENT ATTENDEE

Please do not offer unsolicited advice to fellow dancers either in class or on the social dance floor.

Please use your full range of senses on the dance floor to avoid accidental collisions and injuries. It is every dancer’s responsibility to be aware of their own and their partner’s movement and position, as well as the movement and position of the dancers surrounding them, in order to avoid all forms of dangerous contact.

Please be respectful to event staff, even if you are experiencing a personal frustration. Without the goodwill of these individuals, a smoothly functioning event is impossible.
