Awareness

The city is full of places where people can behave inappropriately and it is widely tolerated.

The Loge is not one of those places.

The Loge is meant to be a space where everyone feels comfortable, supports each other, and looks out for one another. The Loge is not a space for any kind of behavior. Any inappropriate or discriminatory behavior will not be tolerated!

With your help, we can do things differently here.

As the Loge, it is important to us that everyone feels safe in our space. As a visiting, working, or organizing person, you have the right to a discrimination-free stay in our premises. So that we can all have a good evening together, you, like everyone else, are partly responsible for your and their behavior.

We look out for each other!

In the Loge, everyone is welcome as long as they adhere to our defined values and our Code of Conduct.

This concept serves as a binding guide for our behavior in the Loge.

We continually develop this and welcome your help and suggestions for improvements.

What does awareness mean to us?

Being attentive and conscious!

We are attentive and mindful, and our behavior helps prevent difficult situations from arising in the first place.

Awareness is a continuous process and not something that is necessarily modeled by society. Therefore, it is okay to make mistakes. What is important is that we learn from our mistakes. That is why we make each other aware and support each other in this process.

 

 

We act according to the principle of consent

Only yes means yes! Anything else means no! Actions and conversations only take place with mutual consent. Pay attention to whether the other person clearly signals that they want to talk or interact with you.

You have the right to feel safe and respected. If you feel threatened, insecure, or uncomfortable, contact the staff at the entrance, the bar, or any other team member or band member.

If you see that another person needs help

Check with the affected person.

Don't leave it to "others" to take action.

You don't have to explain or justify your experiences and observations.

Everyone should feel accepted and comfortable regardless of gender, sexuality, skin color, religion, or ethnic background. We do not tolerate any form of discrimination, anti-Semitism, transphobia, racism, sexism, ableism, or ageism.

Right-wing symbols and similar are not welcome.

Just because men can walk around shirtless without expecting comments, sanctions, or harassment does not mean they automatically have the right to use this privilege and go shirtless. So be supportive and keep your T-shirt on.

Disrespectful and inappropriate behavior such as unwanted flirting, comments, or other harassment will not be tolerated by us.

Consume responsibly

and only in a way that allows you to respect your own boundaries and those of others. When a boundary is crossed is decided by each person for themselves. Respect the decision!

Contact us

if you observe or experience something that you feel is not right. You determine where your boundaries are and can redefine and communicate them at any time.

What does the Loge do to help you?

We will discuss the observed or experienced situation with you and show you your options. If you cannot or do not want to decide, you can leave the decision to our team or consult a trusted person. We are always here for you and can also give you the opportunity to take a break in a separate room and collect yourself.

We will not put you in a situation you don't want to be in, you can always co-determine or hand everything over to us.

If the moment wasn't right to report something to us.

That's okay too! We want to support you at all times and encourage you to stand up for your well-being and that of others. But if the timing wasn't right, you can also contact us afterward.

The best way to reach us is by email at: contact@loge-berlin.org

We always have an open ear for you!
