Safety & Security
Newspeak House is committed to creating a space for dialog and a diversity of perspectives. To this end, we aim to curate a culture of tolerance, respect, understanding of diverse lived experiences, and accountability.
This is not a “safe space”, in that we cannot guarantee emotional nor physical safety, however we are committed to creating a culture centered around harm prevention, and to this being an accountable & supportive space.
Visitors, residents and staff are all responsible for our behaviour and actions within the space. We are accountable for how we speak or act and should consider at all times how those actions might be affecting other people around us. People’s boundaries, backgrounds and beliefs are all different. What safety looks and feels like is entirely unique to every individual. Please treat everyone with respect and as equals.
We ask people to focus their commentary and critique on systems and not individuals, where possible. Homophobic, sexist, racist, or transphobic language or any discriminatory remarks, attitudes or behaviour will not be tolerated in this space, nor will physical violence. If you hear of such discriminatory remarks, attitudes or behaviour taking place in this space, we ask you to let us know, so that we can communicate directly with the person in question.
We will not necessarily ask people to leave this space based on such views, however we will ask them to educate themselves on this topic, to understand how they are impacting others around them.
If you need immediate support or assistance during an event please find any member of staff. If you would like to raise any issues or concerns, before or after an event then please email us: [email protected]
We are actively looking to develop our culture & processes around these issues, and currently have a feedback survey circulating. Once we have responses from the community we will be building more structure around forging a culture of self driven accountability.
