Tramlines 2022 is SOLD OUT   /  

Safer Spaces

Tramlines is committed to promoting and upholding the best practice to address incidents of sexual assault or harassment and to ensure that our festival is a safe and inclusive space for all. 

 

Alongside AIF (Association of Independent Festivals), we will be supporting the AIF Safer Spaces campaign and Charter of Best Practice. You can find out more information here.

We will also be launching our own initiative in the coming weeks alongside UN Women, focussing on staff training, prevention, reporting procedures, support and awareness. Some of the key points are as follows:

 

  • Providing training for staff and volunteers on both how to proactively monitor for and deal with incidents of sexual assault and harassment.
  • Taking a survivor led approach to ensure that ALL allegations of sexual harassment, assault & violence are taken seriously, acted upon promptly & investigated
  • Educating festival attendees on what an Active Bystander is
  • Actively promoting the principle of consent regarding sexual activity
  • Festival policies and procedures that are in place to address sexual assault and harassment at the festival
  • Aftercare and connections to local services such as local Rape Crisis centres and sexual and referral centres (SARCs)

 

If you find yourself or one of your friends in an uncomfortable or unsafe situation, go to any member of the security, medical and welfare team or bar staff for assistance.
