Safe Space Meetups
Regular (monthly, for now) meetups during which we want to discuss "invisible" and underrepresented issues surrounding (hack)spaces like Metalab and work on (finding solutions for) turning them - and Metalab in particular - into "safe spaces".
Reguläre, vorerst monatliche Treffen, auf denen es darum gehen soll, nicht ausreichend thematisierte Probleme in (Hack)Spaces wie dem Metalab zu diskutieren und Lösungen zu finden, wie solche Orte - und im Speziellen das Metalab - in sogenannte "Safe Spaces", geschützte Orte, verwandelt werden können.
Dates / Termine
- 2013-01-04, 20.00: writing a petition/open letter to the hacker community/the CCC(?) to voice opinions concerning sexism/discrimination.
Background / Hintergrund
The idea of regular "Safe Space Meetups" was put forward during the third "Genderissue Treffen" (gender issue meetup) on 3 January 2013, which had been called following sexist incidents at 29C3. (The two previous gender issue meetups had been brought about by heavy discussions on the topics of sexism and (in)appropriate behaviour towards others on Metalab's internal mailing list.)
