Sexuality Salon: Community Talk Show, Consent & Accountability
February 18 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Join Tanille Geib and community members in Victoria’s live talk show and community space all about sexuality at the Victoria Event Centre! We will bask in knowledge of sexuality with guests who have an intimate connection with the topic of the month. We will celebrate self expression in an artistic way by inviting artists to perform aspects of their own sexuality or perspectives. We will delve into weekly popular media with a critical thinking discussion. We will create a space where community can gather and experience a sex positive, celebratory way of exploring sexuality. We will do it together.
This month’s topic is CONSENT & ACCOUNTABILITY. As consent culture rises, how does accountability culture interact with healing and moving forward? This will be a juicy and intimate talk on how we can receive feedback, build connection, and create more space to learn about ourselves and one another.
Community members & artists:
We are honoured and humbled that this gathering is happening on unceded L’kwungen Territory.

The VEC is centrally located downtown and there are numerous bus stops nearby. Transit info (including distances from bus stop to venue) can be seen via google maps https://goo.gl/maps/a2eM6pTncEL2
Parking map of downtown available here. Map of reserved parking for people with BC Disability Parking Permit can be found here.
Unfortunately our elevator is out of commission, so the only way into the VEC is up 27 wood stairs, 11″ deep, 6″ high. There are wooden 2.5” handrails 38” up the wall on each side of the staircase (54” apart, so not graspable on both sides at once). See further details in ‘Getting Inside’ below:
There are three multi-user, gender-inclusive bathrooms with stalls. One bathroom has a larger stall with its own sink and a grab bar (more details in the ‘Bathrooms’ section below)
As fragrances can be harmful for folks with respiratory problems and chemical sensitivities, we encourage people to avoid wearing/using scented products, including essential oils or other natural scents. However, while we’re working to reduce scents at the VEC, it’s not a scent-free space (see details in ‘Scent’ section).
