The Nightlife Safety Summit

*open to the entire electronic music community, regardless of genre

We, at Four 4 Consent, believe that you already know the answer to the question, “How do I make nightlife safer and more accessible to all?” Unfortunately, members of the electronic music industry are uncertain of how to tap into that intuition, have not been empowered to discuss violence in nightlife, and are unsure how their approach will impact the existing dynamics around them.


Four 4 Consent is proud to present our inaugural Nightlife Safety Summit, a year-long program designed to engage and educate the electronic music industry on how to create safer live music experiences for professionals and fans alike. Seventy- two of our ambassadors will be taken from the Midwest and East coast regions combined, and the other seventy-two will be exclusively representing Los Angeles county (whether they work or live there or are affiliated with those who work there).


A proactive approach to safer nightlife experiences is not only the right thing to do, but is also good for business.


The Nightlife Safety Summit will meet virtually once a month and ambassadors will have the opportunity to create a safer cultural foundation for your future in the music industry, and all those around you.


Our goal is to provide the electronic music industry with scene-specific education on nightlife safety with an emphasis on preventing sexual harassment and assault. Ambassadors will learn language to express their intuition and strategies to approach nightlife violence within the scope of their already existing roles in the music industry. Through education, language, and proven to work strategies we can shift the culture and lower the risk factors associated with participating in nightlife.


Ambassadors will be able to apply their intuition and strategies learned from Four 4 Consent to real life scenarios collectively experienced by our industry and scenarios brought to the Nightlife Safety Summit by fellow ambassadors. They will also network with like minded music industry folks and experienced violence prevention advocates and other credentialed leaders in the movement. This will ultimately empower ambassadors to act in ways that align with their values and does not perpetrate future harm.

"[We] wanted to start the Nightlife Safety Summit program after so many individuals reached out to Four 4 Consent about wanting to make a difference in nightlife, but some of them did not have their entire team's support. In some organizations, barriers occur to making changes, whether they cannot come up with funding or there are people on their staff who do not view ending sexual harassment and violence as a priority. We created this program to help those without the ability to hire our team make a difference in the situations and dynamics they had around them. Many people in the music industry feel like they are alone in wanting to take a stand against those committing abuse against others. Some of the industry feel like they have no power to make a difference because most music highly regards the same people causing harm. Someone's top-of-the-charts release shouldn't excuse them from being accountable. Four 4 Consent and the Nightlife Safety Summit are here to help the industry make a difference, from the dance floors to DJ booths!"

  • "Every person who works in or loves electronic music can impact creating a better future for us all."

Industry SOLUTIONS

Our team brings experience and education directly from the music industry to the table. We know that nightlife and music bring so many unique challenges, and many of us don't have the ability to report or "work things out with HR" when people cause harm like other industries many be able to do. Our goal is to believe, support and empower each participant so they know their choices, and can pursue whatever they self-determine to be best for them.

QUALIFIED EDUCATORS

F4C was built upon the teachings of bar outreach regarding drug and alcohol facilitated sexual violence, and expanded through proven prevention strategies, including (but not limited to) bystander intervention. Our knowledge of prevention and awareness created the framework to develop curriculum that could be applied to music venues, and festivals alike. Our commitment to Nationally Credentialed Advocates is only one standard we hold as imperative.

shifting the culture

Making changes to help lower risk factors for attendees is not just the right thing to do, but it is also good for business. Fans not only want to have a great time, but they also want to feel safe and connected to the artists, venues and events they attend. Attending training n how you can make a difference helps create a safer cultural foundation for your future in the music industry, and all those around you.

NIGHTLIFE safety summit frequently asked questions

How many ambassadors will be chosen for the Nightlife Safety Summit?

Four 4 Consent will be selecting 140+ ambassadors, with 72 affiliated to Los Angeles County and 72 non-Los Angeles County affiliated ambassadors (with a focus on the Mid West and East Coast).


Each area will have 36 male-identifying participants and 36 non-male identifying participants. All gender identities are welcomed and encouraged to apply. Participants will self-select their cohort. Breakdowns were determined based upon the sensitive nature of our programming based upon potential experiences of harm received. Program breakdowns will be further detailed in applications.

Why are cohorts broken into male-identifying and non-male-identifying groups?

At Four 4 Consent we recognize and celebrate all sexualities, gender identities, and other ways participants express and identify themselves. From our research and experience working in sexual violence, many survivors have shared they feel most comfortable discussing experiences that are theirs in groups that are separated by gender identity. In this research and experience, a common theme emerged between non-male identifying experiences of sexual violence and harassment and those that male-identifying survivors of sexual violence and harassment have each experienced. To allow for optimal comfortability during the sensitive nature of some of the content discussed in the Nightlife Safety Summit, participants will be asked to self-identify into a male-identifying cohort and a non-male identifying cohort. We recognize that this breakdown is imperfect, and encourage gender-non-conforming participants to select which cohort they feel meets their needs and comfortability based upon this informed consent disclosure outlined here. We hope to be able to offer additional programming focused on gender non-conforming experiences in the future.

What is the needed time commitment to be a part of the Nightlife Safety Summit?

For twelve months, each ambassador will be responsible for making a two-hour meeting (participants will select what days and times work best for them in the application process and keep the same schedule throughout the program). Participants must be able to attend 10 of the 12 sessions for successful completion of the program.


If you'd like to build skills and learn even more, we will be going deeper with participants that request us to do so!

Two hours a month doesn't feel like enough. How do I go deeper with the Nightlife Safety Summit?

We highly encourage (but do not require) ambassadors opt-in to "going deep" with us outside of these sessions for six additional hours a month. Doing so will give the participants various activities to complete that help build a deeper understanding of materials and implementation, as well as reflection. Activities are on the participant's own time and schedule, and include but are not limited to: participating in our community discord, talking to friends about the program, watching approved movies or media and completing reflections, completing proposed activities and more.


All participants that go deeper with F4C and are US citizens are eligible to receive the President's Volunteer Service Award in recognition of their completion of 100 hours spent on this program.
