Null Reference Exception: Parsons DT Student Show

December 6 — 10, 2018
Opening Reception: Dec 6th, 7pm

"NullReferenceException represents the culmination of the semester's efforts from BFA and MFA DT students. This showcase explores the systems of alternative controllers and traditional gameplay. All around us we see errors, but can we ever create something truly perfect from the human touch? Find out at Babycastles from Dec 6 - 10th if anything is NULL."
- Bex Victoria

Babycastles is a community committed to being a safe, respectful and positive environment -- supporting artists and guests by providing a space for free expression of all people.  Upon entry, all attendees agree to respect personal boundaries and take responsibility for their actions and experience.  

Babycastles will not tolerate language or behavior that is oppressive. We define oppressive behavior as: >> Any kind of uninvited physical contact, sexual or otherwise
>> Comments or other behaviors that are racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic, ableist, classist, ageist, or otherwise discriminatory
>> Deliberate intimidation
>> Harassing photography or recording
>> Sustained or willful disruption of events, programming, or services

A safe and respectful community is everyone's responsibility. We encourage you to make friends and look out for each other. If you see someone who might be in trouble or in need of assistance, don't hesitate to ask them if they need support or let Babycastles staff or volunteers know.

Individuals who have engaged in oppressive behaviors outside of Babycastles will be held accountable within it. Those with a history of being called out for sexual assault, abuse or other oppressive behaviors may not be permitted entry into the space.
Any member of the Babycastles staff/organization may ask you to leave at any time if your behavior makes others uncomfortable. Additionally, Babycastles is not above its own policies -- all members of Babycastles are expected to adhere to all of the above.
