This is Not a Safe Space- Upcoming in G12 Krowji

This is Not a Safe Space
Exhibition
G12 Krowji
22-29th January
10am-3pm

This is Not a Safe Space exhibition follows on from the forum of the same name which was
held at Kresen Kernow in October 2023. The exhibition gathers and presents materials from
the day’s activities and acts as a visual representation of the forum.

The forum was constructed in order to flip the conversation from placing responsibility on
marginalised communities to increase inclusion and equity. This approach was developed
after one-to-one sessions with many of Cornwall’s community group leaders who are often
called on for unpaid labour in order to address inequality which can lead to burn out.
Therefore the forum was an active environment for questions rather than a passive learning
experience.

This is Not a Safe Space is a provocation and an active forum, driven by Cornwall’s
grassroots and community-based organisation to arrive at a creative manifesto for change
for Cornwall. By titling the event in this way we address the question of a safe space at the
door- who is this space safe for? This exhibition makes physical this provocation.
