Workshop hosts include fabric representatives and staff members from the club programming team, fabric Records team, logistics and booking, with fabric club resident DJ and regular Mantra hosting a session about wellness in the DJ-ing sector.
“A Saffron Membership is not only an investment in your own growth – it helps to support the wider work we do too. If you’re a cis man and would like to show your support, you can become a Saffron ally with a one-off or regular donation. Your financial support can provide a Saffron membership subscription for someone in our community who isn’t able to afford it themselves.” – Saffron
The workshops cover looking after your wellness when working in the nightlife industry as well as protecting UK nightlife and the future of club culture; building financially stable venues & fighting off the threat of club closures. The sessions are free for Saffron Members and just £7 for non-members. Open to women, non-binary, trans & gender non conforming folks worldwide.
