About the Event

 We'd like to acknowledge that the People’s Prom is taking place on the unceded, ancestral and traditional homelands of the Musqueam, Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish) and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
 

CONSENT AND RESPECT

The People’s Prom is an event that brings together all kinds of people and identities. ALL ARE WELCOME HERE. The People reserve the right to remove you from the prom if you do not conduct yourself in an appropriate way.


Consent is mandatory to ensure everyone feels safe and respected. Please be considerate of those around you.  


Washrooms are gender neutral.


ACCESSABILITY

The Ukraninan Hall is a wheel chair accessible venue. The entrance is at street level with double doors. Accessible bathrooms are gender neutral.


Reminder that the more people we have in the space, the less accessible it is. Please be mindful of how your body moves through the room and be respectful of the people around you.

SAFETY + FIRST AID + SECURITY

The safety and security of promsters is paramount. If you or anyone at the party needs help, find the First Aid sign near the entrance or a member of our security team or prom committee. We will also be available for interventions if you feel unsafe or are receiving unwanted attention. While Naxolene treatment and trained staff is available, we ask that you please party responsibly.
