Back in April 2022, nacht.be invited me to moderate a panel talk “towards a safe.r space in nightlife“, together with psst mlle and meldet.org. In this panel, we exchanged experiences and ideas to improve safety in clubs and bars: how do we educate ourselves, our audiences, our staff to handle vulnerable communities in a way that guarantees their safety and right to enjoy their time out? What principles of inclusion, decolonization, feminism… do we apply to create spaces where absolutely everyone can feel good and let their hair down? More than words and policies, how do we create actions and apply sanctions that radically improve everyone’s experiences in nightlife?
