Event Details

How Does The Mix & Match Event Work?

  • Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with other attendees on an individual basis. Similar to speed-dating, attendees will rotate between various tables/stations where they will have 5-10 minute one-on-one conversations.
  • At the end of each conversation, attendees will determine what kind of connection they would like to pursue (romantic, friendship, or neither). After the conversation ends, attendees will be prompted to privately mark their preference on the tracking sheet provided.
  • At the end of the event, attendees will hand in their tracking sheets to event factilitators. The event facilitators will pass on your email address and interest type to any individuals that you have circled "friendship" or "romantic" for (anyone circled "neither" will not receive your email address). Your tracking sheet will be kept entirely confidential otherwise. No email addresses will be exchanged without consent.
  • Once email addresses have been passed on, it is up to the two individuals to connect moving forward (event facilitators will have no involvement past this point).
  • Please note: Participants will be paired with others regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. For example, two heterosexual males will still be paired at a table together and can individually determine if they are interested in a friendship or not.

Accessibility:

  • The venue at Corbrook is fully accessible.
  • Participant tracking sheets will be available in multiple formats – fonts and formatting can be tailored in advance upon request
  • Multiple event facilitators will be present during the event for assistance as needed.
  • If you have any accessibility concerns, you may reach out to the event organizers in advance.

Diversity and Inclusion:

  • We strive to provide a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for all event attendees, whatever their age, education, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, gender identity, national origin, neurotype, race, religion, belief system, spiritual practice, sexual orientation, physical ability, physical appearance, body size, or other unique characteristics feel valued and respected. Anyone who acts in defiance of these principles will be permanently removed from the event.
  • A “safe space” community agreement will be created together at the beginning of the event. All attendees must abide by the community agreement for the duration of the event. Anyone who acts in defiance of the community agreement will be permanently removed from the event.
  • This event is inclusive of the LGBTQ2IA+ community (disclosure of sexual orientation is not required)
