  1. Will there be pair and group work? If yes, how will the pairing be done?
    Most of the festival will be presentation-based or panel discussion. If the session is in the form of a workshop, there may be paired and group activities. You may be paired randomly in breakout room but you can always opt out of any activities you don’t feel comfortable with. Please also exercise self-care. 
  1. Can I work exclusively with one partner?
    Yes, if you arrive with them. (You may also bump into someone you know, or meet someone, and decide to practice the activities with them).
  1. Can I sit out of any activity?
    Yes, you may sit out of any activity, or participate only to a level that’s right for you.
  1. What is your policy on safety and consent?

Our intention is to create a space that is as safe as possible where all activity is consensual. “No” means “no”. “Maybe” means “no”. Silence means “no”. People who act in a non-consensual fashion, or who make others feel uncomfortable will be asked to leave. People who are unduly aggressive to other participants or staff will also be asked to leave. 

We are using Zoom as our platform. As such, you can always choose to “change name”; turn video on/ off and/ or mute yourself.  Presenters are pinned so the recording will only record them and not you (even if your video is on). Your voice will be recorded if you choose to speak. You can type your questions in the chat box, and/ or private message the presenter your questions (depending on the presenter) and are welcomed to participate to the level you feel comfortable with.     

We believe in a dignity of risk approach to sex education. Rather than insisting that people practice certain activities in certain ways, we believe in respecting each individual’s autonomy and self-determination to make choices for themselves. While all care is taken to make the space as safe as possible, we cannot guarantee that you will not experience any emotional disturbance or discomfort during the festival. Often this discomfort is part and parcel of finding oneself in a new environment or learning something new.  

We ask that you not reshare the zoom link(s) or recording(s) with people who are not registered for the festival. We want to ensure this is a safe space i.e. prevent Zoom bombers. 

Please take responsibility for yourself first and let us know if you have concerns at emotionalsupport@sugarandspice.asia
