Everyone enjoyed it.
Making sure Confluence was a safe and accessible place for everyone was of paramount importance to us. In addition to mitigating physical barriers to entry, we designed our spaces and what happened in there to be safer for all our visitors.
On a daily basis we encouraged conversations about our approach to mitigating accessibility barriers, including addressing non-physical or subtle normalisations that remain prevalent in our wider society.
We did not know or pretend to have all the answers, but we always tried to learn and adapt to our community and wider needs of society. We adhered to all official advice and laws for businesses like ours operating in NZ, and also expected personal responsibility from our visitors and customers towards maintaining these and helping us work toward our values.
Confluence was also proud to be part of the Safe Space Alliance.
Here's some information you may find useful, but you can also call Confluence on (06) 2813474 anytime to speak with Melita or Kevin.
Confluence strived for equal access to everything happening there. Everyone faces challenges or other factors that can influence how and when they are able to access places, and we want to make sure these never stopped people from safely being able to attend Confluence.
