Backstage Pass #14: Inclusivity In Events

What does it mean to go beyond acceptance and create welcoming platforms for people of all abilities, genders, and circumstances? In our 14th edition, we amplify the voices who champion inclusivity in the events they build, with focus on:
  • How can we make an event theme, content, structure and concept more inclusive?
  • Who have we forgotten to include?
  • How do we redesign an existing event/platform to incorporate more inclusive mechanisms?

Backstage Pass by Peatix is a community event for event organisers - exchange lessons, connect with people who enable events and grow as a group. We're in our 14th session!

Dialogue in the Dark was founded in Germany in 1988. Since it's opening, they have been presented in more than 30 countries and 130 cities all around the world. The concept of Dialogue in the Dark is simple, visitors are led by blind guides in groups through specially constructed dark rooms in which scent, sound, wind, temperature and texture convey the characteristics of daily environments – for example a park, a city or having a drink in a local stall. A reversal of roles is created: people who can see are taken out of their familiar environment. Blind people provide them with security and a sense of orientation by transmitting to them a world without pictures. The tour itself lasts 45 minutes but the effects can last a lifetime.

BSP Entry + Dialogue in the Dark Tour tickets can be redeemed by reservation at least 2 days before your date of visit via email to bookings@did.my.
All tickets are valid until 14 November 2019. All tickets are transferable but non-refundable

Am I considered an "event organiser?" Peatix encourages events of all kinds to blossom - anything from tech talks, workshops and classes to theatre, art performances to parties, gigs to private dinners and gatherings. So yes, you're probably one without knowing it.
I provide relevant services (audio-visual services, photobooth rental, app) - can I attend? Yes, we're an inclusive community. At the same time, organisers prefer to mostly meet other organisers. We require vendors to pay a higher entry of RM30 and respect that this event is not a platform for selling services.
Why can't I buy more than 4 tickets in one transaction? Diversity is important to us - come meet new friends!
Vegetarian food? Yes! Please let us know in advance.
Why isn't the event free? We serve food at wonderful venues. The price is not designed to be a barrier - we offer discounts to students and senior citizens.
What's your refund policy? We understand that things may crop up. Feel free to transfer your ticket to friend or approach us.
Can I pay at the door? Yes you can, but at RM35.
Are you looking for partners? Glad you asked - please drop us a line.
Who organises this? The community team at Peatix Malaysia.
