The Transformative Accountability Incubator
Our last Incubator happened from the 17th to the 19th of September 2021 near Vienna as well as Online.
This Incubator gave us the time and space to learn and develop a structure to become more accountable for ourselves and our organizations. Through learning how to set up a consent policy & procedure, to get in touch with our capacity and scope of dealing with consent issues, and learn different ways to deal with them in an accountable way.
To dive deep into the topics of Transformative Accountability, conflict-resolution & harm, compassionate space holding, and how we take this into action beyond fancy words, strengthening our communities. We invited you to join us in reflection & learning and explore different mindsets, solutions, and roadblocks.
We co-created a space to freely exchange our knowledge, coming from different realms, sharing knowledge on many levels – in workshops, lectures, discussions, in the evenings as well through art and touch.
In the evening there was the possibility to join connection games and playful workshops, as well as different themed spaces – social – sensual – sexual.
We combined two different styles. First, a fixed program to introduce the topics and lay out the terrain where we can work on. Secondly, an UNconference where we co-decided together on which topics we want to dig deeper into, as well as set up a working station where people can actively work on the stuff they learned.
Saturday the Transformative Accountability Training:
For the fixed training program, we invited Ariana Coveny – teacher at the Consent Academy – to provide us a professional training around
- How do You Build a Culture of Accountability & What to do When Something Goes Wrong?

The Sex-positivity & Sustainability Incubator
April & September 2020 – The Sex-positive & Sustainability Incubator was born out of many questions, but the loudest being: How can we become both, more sustainable as well more sex-positive?
Both the sex-positive and the sustainability movements are set on changing the world, aiming for a better future for all. How can community and connection be nurtured, to create networks and strengthen our movements? How can we support the change from a consumption-oriented system to a society thriving on human values?
The Incubator gives us the time and the space to go deep into those ideas, to reflect, and learn, to explore different mindsets and solutions. One weekend, filled with activists, free thinkers, artists, facilitators and rebels with a cause, set in the beautiful Spitzmühle, surrounded by nature, indulging in all organic, regional, vegan food. Let us co-create a space to freely exchange our knowledge, coming from different realms, sharing knowledge on many levels – in workshops, lectures, discussions, as well as through art and touch.
At night, we will soften the conference setting through connection games and playful workshops, and later opening different spaces – from sex-positive playgrounds to non-sexual cuddle spaces, and of course the possibility to go into the Sauna and the Lake. On Saturday evening and Sunday, we will celebrate life and its expression in art within Janina Vivianne’s infamous Parallel Universe party. Be prepared to experience an immersive adult playground, with performance, bodypaint, excellent music delivered by beloved DJs & DJanes, spiced up with sex-positive workshops and several sensual spaces with different levels of intimacy. On Sunday we will have a long brunch and several activities like a nature reconnecting ritual, an art workshop, a sensual day-temple and an ecstatic dance set.
This event was made by the Sex-positive Association and is fully non-profit & gemeinnützig.
