Social Safety at Alles is Drama

Our Commitment to Social Safety

At our student theatre association Alles is Drama we place a high value on social safety. As a community of young individuals, we are continuously learning about personal boundaries, especially in the context of theatre where these boundaries can be easily crossed. Ensuring a safe and welcoming environment for all our members is our top priority.

One of the ways in which this can be best facilitated by us is through prevention and spreading awareness - which is part of the aim of this website page.

In Article 3 of our Membership Terms and Conditions, we clearly state our zero-tolerance policy towards any form of discrimination or hostile actions directed at our members.

Whilst a more specified code of conduct is yet to be developed, this policy underscores our commitment to maintaining a respectful and inclusive community. According to our statutes, the board has the power to raise sanctions to the extent of suspension of members.

Creating a Safe Space

Alles is Drama strives to be a safe haven for students of all backgrounds and identities. Some of the measures we have implemented include:

  • Displaying pronouns on board member jackets to foster inclusivity.

  • We aim to provide detailed information about the accessibility of our events.

  • Creating an environment where members are in no way forced to drink alcohol, participate in overstimulating environments, or do anything that they are not comfortable with.

Seeking Support

If you have any concerns about social safety within our association, please feel free to reach out to a board member or email us at contact@allesisdrama.com. Should you prefer not to approach the board directly, you can contact a member of the Advisory Council (AC). More information about the AC can be found here. While we do not yet have a confidential counselor, we are actively working on enhancing our support services for our members.
