Sexism Free Night Seminar

The Sexism Free Night project stands for a future where nightlife embraces a gender perspective in the promotion of safety, diversity and valuable experiences for all. And now, after extensive two years of work, published Research, European and national Trainings and Campaign which targets all participants in nightlife environments and invited them to be an active baystandards, in front of a consortium of the Sexism free night project, we happily invited you to join us at the final Sexism Free Night Seminar.

Sexism Free Night Seminar will take place on 20th of May in Barcelona, Spain, from 15:00 to 20:00h at Subdirecció General de Drogodependències Carrer de Roc Boronat, 81-95 (Edifici Salvany).

This one-day seminar is imagined to be a combination of activities, mix of presentations and side events around it, all aiming to present a full spectrum of topics around Sexism in Nightlife – from project results and outputs, through presentations of good practice examples around prevention of sexism and sexualised violence in nightlife, finishing by presenting our hopes and actions for the future and the Sexism Free Night Network Launch.

After the seminar opening and presentation of project outputs and results, there will be a roundtable discussion “What do we need to promote egalitarian nightlife environments?” during which we’ll explore this from the position of good practice examples within different collectives, what can be taken from their experience and how that could be implicated into Sexism Free Night Network and transferred across Europe and beyond.

The second roundtable discussion “Queering nights beyond the binarism” will focus on how nightlife environments can be transformed when they are liberated from the gender binary, and when they are more diverse and inclusive, focusing on meaningful participation, and to which extent we can and should use the knowledge and good practice examples from Germany, Spain, Portugal or Netherlands to shape up queer care practices around European nightlife environments?

At the end of the Seminar, we will officially launch the Sexism Free Night Network!

This is a European project co-funded by the Rights Equality and Citizenship (REC) Programme and is driven by a consortium involving nightlife promoters, non-governmental organisations and a university from fifth countries working in the field of gender and drug use, with the aim of creating an interdisciplinary dialogue able to promote safer and more egalitarian nightlife environments.

If you share our vision of a future where nightlife embraces a gender perspective in the promotion of safety, diversity & valuable experiences for all – go ahead and apply to participate here>>>.
