Entropy's Safer Space Guidelines 

Made 11.10.2021

Everyone entering a space occupied by Entropy agrees to:

1. No discrimination (racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, cissexism, ableism, etc.) or any other behavior or language that may perpetuate oppression. 

2. Respect people’s opinions, beliefs, experiences and differing points of view.

3. Respect everyone’s identity and background, including their pronouns and names.

4. Not make assumptions about people’s genders, ethnicity, nationality, religion, disability, social class, wealth, sexual orientation, health and possible illnesses.

5. Respect everyone’s physical and emotional boundaries. Do not touch without consent and change your behavior if someone tells you that you are making them uncomfortable.

6. Be responsible for your language and behaviour. Be aware that your actions do have an effect on others despite what your intentions may be. Apologise when making a mistake and fix your behaviour.

7. No violence of any kind. (Including psychological).

8. Respect the privacy of other visitors at Entropy events. Check with the organizers of the event and other attendees before using cameras or recording devices.

9. Take care of the people around you. It is everyone's responsibility to interfere themselves and/or contact the event organisers if you see someone who’s clearly in an uncomfortable situation or not feeling well.
