Weekend Question: Accessible Parties?
For those who want to socialize in a group atmosphere, parties can be pretty awesome. They can be a good place to meet people, to see a bunch of friends at once, to network, and to have fun. Unfortunately, they can also prove difficult for many people for a huge variety of reasons.
One of the ways in which parties are difficult for me is that they are usually very loud. For some reason a lot of people think they’re only having fun if they’re all yelling at the top of their lungs all at once. I want to participate in the conversations, but I can only tolerate being in a room full of shouting for very limited amounts of time. One of the best things people can do to make a party much more accessible to me is to have a quieter room or to occasionally ask everyone to bring their voices down to half the volume. If everyone is quieter at once we can all still hear each other!
What makes a party more accessible for you? How can hosts, other guests, or event organizers make sure that you can have fun at their parties too?
