Revision as of 21:03, 19 August 2019

Codes of Conduct give specific guidance to what is expected of Burn participants, and in some cases of Burn organisers and volunteers.

Alchemy

While we strive to keep the number of hard and fast rules that we have to a minimum, certain types of behavior serve only to harm other participants or the event itself. The following types of behavior will not be tolerated, and can result in ejection from the event or banning from one or more future FAI-sponsored events. Nothing herein is intended to or shall waive the right of FAI to ban or restrict access by an individual or entity as it may determine, in its sole discretion, is warranted.

Consent violations of an aggressive or sexual nature. This includes any kind of physical contact with the body of another without their express consent, regardless of intent. The severity of response will depend on the type of conduct and the circumstances.

Stalking/Harassment. If someone asks you to leave them alone, and you continue to engage with them or follow them around, you will be asked to leave. Verbal assaults, especially of a continued, aggressive, and/or sexual nature constitute harassment. Reasonableness will be a consideration in determining FAI’s response.

Endangering others. Do not do things that will put others in serious danger. Please note that FAI cannot help you if you are personally sued by a participant that you thought gave consent. Do not bring items to an FAI event that could endanger others, such as guns, explosives, fireworks, unsafe fire art, etc. This section also includes non-consensual intoxication.

Entering an FAI event without invitation. All participants, staff, Board Members, landowners, etc. gain entry to our events by purchasing tickets, using a pass that is specifically negotiated (with regard to landowners), or as a vendor under contract with FAI. Any other entry will be considered trespassing.

Destruction, using, or taking of property. If it is not yours, leave it alone, unless you have the consent of the owner of the property. If you inadvertently damage another's property, that is a matter to be resolved between you and the property owner

Constellation

While we strive to keep the number of hard and fast rules that we have to a minimum, certain types of behavior serve only to harm other participants or the event itself. Radical inclusion means that strangers are welcome to participate in our community; it does not mean tolerance of harmful behaviors.

This document identifies behaviors and actions that will not be tolerated at Playa del Fuego, Constellation or other events sponsored by FirePony Creative Society. A copy of the FPCS Code of Conduct will be on-site for FirePony Creative Society sponsored events in the Ranger and First Aid notebooks or other relevant locations. In addition, participants of any FirePony Creative Society-sponsored events are expected to comply with all federal, state, and local laws. (The terms herein are used in a commonsense manner and not necessarily as legal terms of art.)

Participants may report any incident in which another participant is behaving in an abusive, intimidating, threatening, or unsafe manner. Physical hazards, such as unsafe art installations or fires, should be referred to Rangers.

The following types of behavior are unacceptable at FirePony Creative Society-sponsored events, including, but not limited to, Playa del Fuego and Constellation:

Consent violations, especially of an aggressive or sexual nature. This includes any kind of non-consensual physical contact with the body of another, regardless of claimed intent. This section also includes non-consensual intoxication (i.e. putting a drug into someone’s drink without their knowledge). The severity of response will depend on the type of conduct and the circumstances. FirePony Creative Society takes consent violations very seriously. If you aren’t sure, ask, and make sure you have enthusiastic consent! Stalking/Harassment. If someone asks you to leave them alone, do not continue to engage with them or follow them around.

Freezer Burn Canada

Freezer Burn, produced by the League of Extraordinary Albertans Society (LEA), expects attendees and volunteers to create and maintain a space that is welcoming for all ticketed attendees. We do not discriminate on gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, or religion.

We are guided by the Burning Man 10 Principles. When in conflict with other participants, we use FLAME: Find out, Listen, Analyze, Mediate, Explain.

Participation in this event is open to all ticketed attendees, but participation is a privilege. Continued attendance can be revoked if a participant fails to respect other attendees or behaves in a way that endangers themselves, the event, or the broader community.

Expected behaviour includes, but is not limited to:

̇̇̈Consent has the support of our whole community. You are obligated to get someone’s consent in a sexual context, in a situation involving video or photography, or in any situation affecting the experience of another person at Freezer Burn. Be considerate and respectful of fellow participants and the community around the event. Refrain from non-consensual demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behaviour. Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants’ safety. Unacceptable behaviour includes but is not limited to:

Predatory behaviour, defined as any unwanted and non-consensual form of the following: intimidation, harassment, stalking, verbal or physical abuse, violence against people or other’s property. Non-consensual physical contact, including unwelcome sexual interaction. Abuse or neglect of LEA or Freezer Burn property, physical or otherwise, such as vandalism, theft of event property, abusing the ticketing process, or impersonating a lead or event organizers. Disrespecting the community surrounding the event such as dumping trash in local dumpsters, trespassing, or repeated violations of the event’s sound ordinance. Wanton, flagrant, or repeated disregard for one’s own safety or well-being in a manner that demands the intervention of other participants, community members, volunteers or outside agencies, such as intervention by local law enforcement or fire department staff. Repeated or egregious violations of any and all policies put in effect by event organizers. Consequences of unacceptable behaviour:

Unacceptable behaviour will not be tolerated. This includes expressions of this behaviour at the event as well as pre- or post-event via phone, social media, or face-to-face communication.

Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behaviour is expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in unacceptable behaviours, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate to ensure the safety of the event and its participants. This action may include expulsion from the event without refund, revoking tickets, or removing a volunteer from their shift.

If a participant’s behaviour does not comply with this code of conduct or puts the future of the event at risk, a suspension for the present or following years may be instituted. Decisions around expulsions or suspensions are not permanent, and opportunities to appeal may take place in cases where progress to resolution is demonstrated. The processes of an appeal and its timeline will be determined by the LEA and will take place between members of the Board and the party who has been suspended.

LEA or individuals may pursue potential legal action.

What to do if you witness or are subjected to unacceptable behaviour:

If you are subjected to unacceptable behaviour, notice that someone else is being subjected to it, or have any other concerns:

First, speak up. Ask the person to stop. Say no. If you feel unsafe, leave the situation. If you feel uncomfortable but the person’s behaviour does not cross a line, step away from the situation. If you need help, ask for it. If someone asks you for help, do your best to help or find someone who can. Report your concerns to a Ranger, Freezer Burn Producer, or LEA Board Member; these individuals are prepared to assist participants and listen to your concerns. All reports will remain confidential. If you would like to call in law enforcement or need professional medical treatment, Freezer Burn will support you taking that action. Report the incident to the League of Extraordinary Albertans using their Incident Report Form available here: http://www.extraordinaryalbertans.ca/conduct-committee/incident-report-form/ We thank you in advance for your adherence to this code of conduct. Together we can create an event and community that is welcoming for all participants. Code of Conduct
