Introducing: Button Buddies

As safety negotiation continues to be part of our community choreography, Pieter is experimenting with ways to deepen our community practices around safety: Introducing Button Buddies!

Please pick up the appropriate color button for how you’re feeling/what your needs are when you arrive for a Pieter in person program. These Button Buddies are to help us attend to each person’s individual needs and boundaries in a clear and simple way. 

 

GREEN: Let’s get close!

Some reasons to choose green could be:

“I’m not particularly worried about COVID exposure”

“I need a hug”

“I’m down for all the partner work or close conversations”

 

YELLOW: Let’s negotiate a little more proximity

Some reasons to choose yellow could be:

“I’m open to sharing more closeness but appreciate being asked what’s comfortable for me”

“I’m feeling cautiously open to proximity”

 

RED: Please give me extra distance

Some reasons to choose red could be:

I’m feeling hesitant”

 “I or someone close to me is particularly vulnerable to COVID”

 

We look forward to moving and being with you soon. If you have any questions, please email pieterpasd@gmail.com
