In order to create a safe(r) space, the workshop is open exclusively to individuals self-identifying as queer, trans, non-binary, gender non-conforming and/or Black, Indigenous or Person of Color (BIPoC)*.
If you do you NOT identify as any of the above, we kindly ask that you refrain from signing up or contact us to explore the possibility of organizing a similar space for allies and advocates.
As individuals who are marginalized and/or racialized, we have had lifelong experiences of being invisible, excluded, and mis-perceived, and continue to experience harms of emotional, physical, and spiritual natures - both unintended and intended.
This is a space to share and process the effects of these experiences and explore resources for becoming more resilient within a community of peers.
All emotions and experiences are valid and welcome. Harmful language and oppressive behavior of any kind will not be tolerated.
Those who are descended (through one or more parents) from anywhere in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Indigenous peoples of Australasia, the Americas, the Caribbean, Indian Pacific, and Roma, Sinti (and) Travellers and people of mixed ancestry/origin. This does not include either descents of Europeans who migrated to Africa, Asia or the Americas for occupational/colonial reasons or white European migrants. This definition is based on experiences and it reflects our realities in a European context. It is a work in progress and is vulnerable to critique.
We welcome your feedback and comments and are committed to updating this definition in co-creation with affected communities.
