Creating Safer Spaces Discussion Panel

The Society for the Advocacy of Safer Spaces (SASS) was formed in response to conversations about discrimination, harassment and violence in the music community. The purpose of SASS is to help create safer spaces by providing resources, advocacy and education to Calgary’s arts community. This panel will discuss challenges in creating safer spaces, with a specific focus on gender. Participants include Cari Ionson, Sexual Violence Response Awareness Coordinator for Mount Royal University; Emily Ophus, Community Programs Manager for the Calgary Sexual Health Centre; and Sarah Adams, comedian, arts advocate and SASS co-founder.
