The English term 'awareness' can be translated as consciousness. In the German-speaking world, the term stands for attitudes and practices that counteract discrimination and (sexualised) violence and promote consensus-based action.

    On the one hand, Awarenss means a structure on the ground through which those affected by discrimination and violence experience partisan support. If necessary, informative talks can also be held with discriminating or violent persons. On the other hand, prevention and education form the basis of this work: organisers, visitors, staff and artists educate themselves and actively contribute to dismantling violence and social structures of inequality. This means, for example, that all people involved in an event take responsibility for themselves and for the shared space.

    Awareness thus helps to find a conscious way of dealing with one's own boundaries and needs and to perceive and adhere to them in others as well.
