Code of Conduct

From Burning wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

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. Verbal assaults, especially of a continued, aggressive, and/or sexual nature are harassment. Hate Speech. Anything that consists of an incitement to hatred primarily against a group of people defined in terms of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, or sexual orientation. Endangering others. Do not do things that will put others in serious danger or bring prohibited items (such as fireworks not authorized by the fire team) to an event. While we all accept that attending events like Constellation presents risks, disregarding basic safety rules is not acceptable. An example would be spinning fire without a safety after being reminded not to do so. Entering the event without invitation. All participants, volunteers, Board Members, landowners, etc. gain entry to our events by purchasing tickets, or as a vendor under contract with FirePony Creative Society 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. Consent may be implied where there is a clear intent to “gift” items, but if in doubt, verbal confirmation is encouraged. This section includes theft, deliberate destruction of property, and vandalism. Incidents Occurring Previously, or Outside of FirePony Creative Society-sponsored Events. The Board may consider the following in relation to the ability to participate in future events: patterns of behavior (including stalking or harassment), history of prior misconduct, alleged criminal acts, or violations of these policies (or similar policies at other events), and criminal charges or protective orders that have been filed against the participant when they come to our attention. The most severe penalty our community can impose on a participant for such behavior is ejection from the event or a suspension from participation in one or more future FirePony Creative Society-sponsored events (such as Playa del Fuego and Constellation). Other actions, such as a warning or a removal from volunteering in a safety-sensitive volunteer position, are also possible. (Obviously, the legal system may impose other sanctions for some actions.)

Nothing herein is intended to or shall waive the right of the Board of Directors of FirePony Creative Society to restrict the access to FirePony Creative Society events of an individual or entity as it may determine, in its sole discretion, is warranted.

Updated and Adopted: April 2018 Code of Conduct

Critical Northwest

IGNITION ​NORTHWEST CODE OF CONDUCT Adopted 11 October 2017 Amended 8 Feb 2018. Members agree to abide by the standards and policies detailed herein Event Policies All members agree to inform themselves of the particular policies and procedures relevant to any Ignition NW event they wish to attend - e.g. Critical NW Survival Guide

Consent. Consent is a core value of the Ignition Community. We believe consent is an affirmative, enthusiastic, informed, sober, freely given “Yes!”. Consent is not the absence of “No.” This is not limited to sex or physical contact. By our community standards, consent which is tacit or coerced is not acceptable when acting in a manner which could cause harm to another. We understand that consent can be revoked or changed at any time. As members we always err on the side of too much communication: we encourage each other to communicate clearly and often about our boundaries and desires, practicing awareness and respect as contexts and situations evolve. We strive to support a culture in which asking for consent is normalized and celebrated and we do not take it personally or react indignantly if someone says no. Leaders are expected to model the highest standards of behavior, and must take special precaution to avoid any abuse of their position or implication of coercion.

Photography. INW recognizes and supports photography at our events as a form of expression and participation. In order to protect the autonomy of our members and create a comfortable environment for self-expression and immediate experience, photography of anyone at an Ignition event requires their express consent. Members agree to abide by the Event Recording Guidelines

Alcohol. Over-intoxication is grounds for removal from a specific location, or from an Ignition event altogether. Those serving alcohol on behalf of Ignition or any entity at our events must strictly comply with Washington State Law, and refrain from serving any apparently intoxicated individual and report over-intoxication to Rangers or other event staff.

Fire, Fireworks, Fire-spinning, and Firearms Fireworks and firearms are not permitted at any Ignition event. INW welcomes artistic expressions involving fire. If you have any fire art (including burn barrels or other open fires and flame effects), you must register prior to the event, pass inspection by the Fire Safety team prior to burning, and ensure that all fires of any kind are attended at all times. Fire performers must submit emergency contacts prior to the event and agree to perform only in designated areas of the event. Event-specific policies may apply as well. As stated above, all participants are responsible for reviewing and understanding event-specific policies. Fire performers are responsible for obtaining any necessary governmental licenses and abiding by location specific regulations. Additional restrictions may also apply based on current local conditions or specific placement at an event.

Leave No Trace (“LNT”) LNT is a core principle of the Ignition community. All members are responsible for ensuring no trash or other foreign matter is left upon egress regardless of whether trash facilities are available. As a community, members take personal responsibility for collecting “matter out of place” (MOOP) regardless of who generated it. In order to preserve the goodwill of the communities in which INW events are held, members should not deposit trash in local dumpsters. Where portable restroom facilities are provided, members will not discard any trash, wet-wipes or other foreign matter aside from toilet paper. “If it isn’t from your body, don’t throw it in the potty.”

Non-consensual Aggression In order to protect the safety of all participants, the reputation of the Ignition community, and our continued ability to hold events, all attendees are responsible for maintaining composure in their interpersonal interactions with other participants AND neighbors, bystanders, humans of all variety. Verbal or physical harassment, violence, or destruction of the property of others are strictly prohibited.

Radical Inclusion Inclusivity is a core principle of the Ignition community. Members recognize that every human has worth and value, and we aim to create positive cultural change by example. Transphobic, Homophobic, Sexist, Ableist, Ageist, Racist, or Hateful actions/threats/acts against any person will not be tolerated. Everyone is invited to play, but inclusion is not an entitlement for those who refuse to respect our values. Revocation of membership privileges is grounds for exclusion from an Ignition NW event.

Self-Expression Members respect the personal and intellectual property of others. Use of property belonging to an individual, art project, camp, event venue, or Ignition requires permission of the owner. Theft, destruction and misuse will be treated seriously.

Self-Reliance. As with Burning Man, your ticket entitles you to nothing more than entry. Ignition members are responsible for their own experience, and for contributing to the success of the event.

Vending and Sponsorship. Decommodification is a core principle of the Ignition community. With limited exceptions for food, beverages and ice subject to prior approval, vending is not permitted at INW events. While donations from any entity are allowed and encouraged, branding or explicit recognition of any corporate entity is not.

Removal, Warnings and Bans. Violation of any of the above policies is grounds for removal from an Ignition event by the event producer, directors, or other individuals to whom removal authority is delegated. Additionally, such violations may result in the loss of an individual’s Ignition membership and/or exclusion from future INW events. The Warning and Ban Policy details the manner INW may take additional action to bar members from attending or volunteering at events. Code of Conduct

Element 11

PARTICIPANT CODE OF CONDUCT Element 11 strives to build community and produce events that promote our mission statement of igniting a culture of creativity and self-expression. We also promote the 10 Principles of Burning Man. Through the following code of conduct, we aim to promote a safe and fun environment for all participants. At all events organized by Element 11, participants are responsible for their own behavior and resolving their own issues. Element 11 strongly suggests behaving in a manner that does not make other participants feel unsafe or threatened. Element 11 will not condone any behavior that endangers its ability to hold the annual regional burn event and other community events. 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 or a Board of Directors member immediately. Children under 18 years of age can attend the regional burn event only accompanied at all times by a parent, legal guardian, or other responsible party; any persons bringing a child to the event agrees on behalf of the child to the contractual terms of the ticket and acknowledges that they have made a choice that the child may be exposed to expressive activities and dress at the event. Refer to Minors Policy for more specifications. Element 11 has a zero tolerance policy for unaccompanied children.. Both parents/guardians and children will be evicted from the event grounds should an unaccompanied child be found. This applies regardless whether the child is lost or missing. Along with this Code of Conduct participants need to be aware of and comply with all Element 11’s policies that are located on our website: http://www.element11.org/e11-events/regional-burn-utah/general-festival-faq/. Last Updated: 2.13.19 Code of Conduct

Euphoria

Code of Conduct. 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.

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.

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.

Firefly

Code of Conduct At all events organized by Firefly Arts Collective, participants are responsible for their own behavior and resolving their own issues. Firefly Arts Collective strongly suggests behaving in a manner that does not make other participants feel unsafe or threatened. Firefly Arts Collective will not condone any behavior that endangers its ability to hold the annual festival and other community events. The Firefly Arts Collective Conduct Committee exists to handle situations requiring higher levels of confidentiality, personalized communication, extensive documentation, or detailed investigation. Other issues are resolved by the Board of Directors. (Physical hazards, such as unsafe art installations or fires, should be referred to Rangers or Fire Core.)

Report to Conduct Committee (report form here): Any unwanted or non-consensual form of the following: intimidation, harassment, stalking, verbal or physical abuse, violence against people or non-consensual physical contact including unwelcome sexual interaction. Non-consensual intoxication, with or without unwelcome physical or sexual interaction. Abuse of power in an organizational position or other volunteer role relating to Firefly event(s) Report to Board (board@fireflyartscollective.org): Abuse or neglect of Firefly or venue 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, or the well-being of others, 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. The Conduct Committee Policies page has a FAQ and details about handling behavioral issues at Firefly Arts Collective events.

A Current list of indefinitely banned individuals can be found here. Code of Conduct

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

Hyperborea

The Hyperborea Experiential Art Team (HEAT) expects attendees and volunteers to create and maintain a space that is welcoming for all. We do not discriminate based on gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age or religion.

This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participant behaviour at Hyperborea and it’s associated events. This includes any online forums moderated by HEAT and between any HEAT volunteers and attendees participating in pre and post event planning.

Participation in HEAT events and it’s online forums are open to all; however, continued attendance and opportunities for participation can be revoked if you fail to respect other attendees or behave in a way that endangers yourself, the event, or the broader community.

Please be conscious of your well-being and aware of your own needs. Practice self-care. Remember that we value self-reliance in our community. In general, HEAT encourages community members to work things out on their own to each person’s satisfaction. There are some problems you can’t work out on your own. If you find yourself in such a situation please reach out to others for support. An outcome where one community member backs away from the community out of fear that a certain person may be there is not acceptable.

Expected behaviour includes, but is not limited to: Ensuring consent: 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 Hyperborea events. Being considerate and respectful of fellow participants and the community around the event. Refraining from 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 HEAT 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 behaviour at the event as well as before or after the event, whether by phone, email, social media or in 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.

What to do if you witness or are subject 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. At any Hyperborea Event, report your concerns to a Ranger or a HEAT Board Member on-call; these individuals are prepared to assist participants and listen to your concerns. They can be found roaming the event and/or stationed at Safety HQ. If you see any event Staff with a Radio they can also contact a Ranger or Board Member for you. If you are the victim of a crime during the event, you can also go directly to law enforcement, although the event organizers would appreciate a heads-up. A Safety Team member may be able to get law enforcement on the scene more quickly if you go through them. Outside of Hyperborea report directly to HEAT using our Incident Reporting Form HEAT does not have the power to exclude a person from the burner community at large, public spaces where the community gathers, or private, non-sponsored community events (parties, private fundraisers, etc.) HEAT does not intend for this process to be an alternative forum for justice. It does not have the power to make things right, repair damage, or reverse trauma.

We thank you in advance for your adherence to this code of conduct. Together we create an event and community that is welcoming for all participants.

Boundaries & Consent Consent is mandatory. Consent means permission. Get consent before when taking photos of someone, touching them, or engaging in sexual activities. Radical self-expression can take many forms – including nudity – but it is not an invitation to anyone to invade someone’s personal space or make physical advances. People may be unable to give consent due to being intoxicated, in an altered state, or even asleep. Past interactions do not imply future consent. Consent may be withdrawn at any time for whatever reason and you have an obligation to honour their change of heart.

Respect people’s bodies and personal space; we all want to have a fun, safe and enjoyable experience.

Accept “no” gracefully; coercion is a crime and thanking someone for expressing their boundaries helps make a better community for all. Remember, only “YES” means yes!

Clothing Hyperborea is a clothing-optional event, although, given the bugs and the unpredictable Ontario weather in May, it’s probably going to be much less common than at Burning Man.

Microburn

1 Purpose A primary goal of MicroBurn is to be inclusive to the largest number of participants, with the most varied and diverse backgrounds possible. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and religion (or lack thereof).

This code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behaviour.

We invite all those who participate at MicroBurn to help us create safe and positive experiences for everyone.

2 Expected Behaviour The following behaviours are expected and requested of all MicroBurn community members:

– Participate in an authentic and active way. In doing so, you contribute to the health and longevity of this community helping it to grow.

– Exercise consideration and respect in your speech and actions around others.

– Attempt collaboration before conflict.

– Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behaviour and speech.

– Refrain from any activities that may put yourself or others in danger.

– Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants. Alert Leads or Rangers if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or violations of this Code of Conduct, even if they seem inconsequential.

– Remember that MicroBurn event venues may be shared with members of the public; please be respectful to all patrons of these locations.

3 Unacceptable Behaviour The following behaviours are considered harassment and are unacceptable within our community. The list is not exhaustive and any other behaviours which are deemed harmful, disrespectful or inappropriate by MicroBurn in general will be dealt with by the MicroBurn Conduct Committee.

– Violence, threats of violence or violent language directed against another person.

– Sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableism or otherwise discriminatory jokes and language.

– Personal insults, particularly those related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, or disability.

– Inappropriate photography or recordings. Ask before taking photos or video of people, especially if in a state of undress. People might feel fine expressing themselves at MicroBurn in certain aspects but probably do not want photographic evidence of such making its way out into the default world.

– Inappropriate physical contact. You should have someone’s consent before touching them.

– Unwelcome sexual attention. This includes, sexualized comments or jokes; inappropriate touching, groping, and unwelcomed sexual advances.

– Deliberate intimidation, stalking or following (online or in person). If you harass someone at an event you will be asked to leave.

– MicroBurn has a fairly active social media aspect to it especially on the run up to events. Anyone found to be trolling or harassing members of our community online will be removed from any social media account by moderators. If a member of our community can show evidence of harassment outside of social media within MicroBurns control this will be enough to warrant being reviewed by our Conduct Committee and will likely have consequences.

– Sustained disruption of community events, including talks, workshops or presentations, will result in members being asked to leave.

Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behaviour is unacceptable.

4 Consequences of Unacceptable Behaviour. Unacceptable behaviour from any member of the MicroBurn community, including those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated.

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

If a MicroBurn community member engages in unacceptable behaviour, the MicroBurn Conduct Committee may take any action they deem appropriate, this may range from being asked to leave an event up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from future MicroBurn events without warning (and without refund in the case of a paid event).

Appeals can be made within 14 days of notification against the Conduct Committee decision in which case a new panel will be assembled and they will review the evidence. Their decision is final and cannot be appealed against further.

5 Reporting Guidelines and Procedures If you are subject to or witness unacceptable behaviour at a MicroBurn event, or have any other concerns, please notify a Lead or Ranger as soon as possible. If you cannot find a Lead or Ranger go straight to Welfare which will usually have someone present.

Additionally, Leads or Rangers are available to help MicroBurn community members engage with local Police or to otherwise help those experiencing unacceptable behaviour feel safe. In the context of in-person events, organizers will also provide escorts as desired by the person experiencing distress.

If you report an incident of unacceptable behaviour at an event you may either be asked for your details to be contacted after the event to get a full report or asked to give a report there and then.

If you were subject to an incident of unacceptable behaviour or were aware of one at an event and wish to report it after the event, in the first instance email: conflict@microburn.org

A Facilitator will contact you to sensitively and anonymously discuss the best resolution for you and other parties involved.

Once a complaint or report is received the person who is the focus of the complaint will also be contacted by a Facilitator from MicroBurn and asked to give their version of events. They will not be given any personal details such as the name of the person making the complaint.

All reports and accounts will be treated with the upmost confidentiality by the Facilitator. The goal of the Facilitator is NOT to determine guilt or innocence. Their goal is to gather enough information to be able to be reviewed by the Conduct Committee.

Once the facilitator has reports from all parties involved the names shall be removed from the information provided to maintain anonymity and then passed on to the Conduct Committee for review.

The Conduct Committee tries to hear multiple perspectives about some complex situations, and our volunteers often have busy schedules just like the witnesses and others they talk to. It can take several months to have a sufficient number of conversations to provide an understanding of the situation behind some reports. If you are interacting with the Conduct Committee (as a reporter, subject of a report, or witness), you can help keep our process moving by responding to emails from investigators in a timely fashion, and are welcome to check in with Facilitators yourself about report status.

Once reviewed the MicroBurn Conduct Committee may take any action they deem appropriate, this can range up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from future MicroBurn events. In the most serious of offences details will be passed on to Police or relevant authorities.

Appeals can be made within 14 days of notification against the Conduct Committee decision in which case a new panel will be assembled and they will review the evidence. Their decision is final and cannot be appealed against further.

The Conduct Committee decision may be shared with other Burner events if they have a similar Conduct Committee and it is felt pertinent. Any information passed on will be expected to be kept in the strictest confidence. Code of Conduct

Modifyre

Code of Conduct 1. Applicability This document is a policy of BURN Arts, Inc. (“Association”). This document applies to all members of the Association (“Members”) and where reasonable, serves as a guide to individuals attending our events, including Modifyre, and individuals accessing our resources at any of our event venues, including East Brisbane Bowls Club and Hackerspace Brisbane (“Participants”). 2. Purpose To provide guidance on the conduct and expectations for acceptable and ethical behaviour by Members and Participants. 3. Objects The objects of the Association, founded on the core intention to promote and develop participatory arts and culture in Brisbane and regional Queensland, are: (a) to organise, develop and promote: (i) an annual arts, music and cultural festival which is inclusive, accepting and safe; and (ii) other related events promoting self-expression, identity and understanding; (b) to act as a vehicle for the creation and propagation of participatory, interactive, thought-provoking art works and events; (c) to develop and support workshops and training activities for artists and volunteers; (d) to support community-based fundraising events to further the development of the objects of the association; (e) to foster a culture of critical thinking and social activism; (f) to conduct all its activities in an environmentally sustainable manner; (g) to adhere to the 10 principles of the burner community; and (h) to foster the burner community in Brisbane and regional Queensland. 4. Core values In furthering our objects, the Association seeks to adhere to the following core values (“CREATE"): Community We treat all individuals with care and tolerance. We recognise the value of working in partnership with each other and the wider community in the pursuance of our goals. Our community is built by the creative collaboration and cooperation of our volunteers, as well as compliance to rules and formal obligations. Responsibility Our relationships are based on trust, mutual respect and the acceptance of responsibility. We understand that we are responsible for our own behaviour at all times and the physical spaces we inhabit. We value the cohesiveness this builds in our community. We develop this cohesiveness by being dependable Members and Participants and caring for the welfare of others in the community. Equality We seek to promote fairness, diversity, inclusion and equality of opportunity. We challenge discrimination, disadvantage and harassment to make the community a more equitable place for all. Anyone may be a part of the community; we welcome and respect all individuals. Action We achieve being through doing – we create change through participation.

Myschievia

ntxb code of conduct NTXB wishes all participants to be able to experiment in community, create art, and interact with one another with few rules or restraints. However, certain conduct or behaviors serve only to harm other participants or the event itself and cannot be tolerated. NTXB believes:

At all events organized by NTXB, participants are responsible for their own behavior and resolving their own issues. NTXB will not condone any behavior that may endanger its ability to hold Myschievia or any related community events. Participants may report any incident in which another participant is behaving in an abusive, intimidating, threatening or unsafe manner to a Ranger or anyone with a radio, or by emailing LLC here. Physical hazards, such as unsafe art installations or fires, should be reported to Rangers or anyone with a radio immediately. Children under the age of 18 may attend Myschievia and affiliated events only if accompanied at all times by a parent or legal guardian. All events organized by NTXB must comply with the principle of Consent. Consent regarding another person’s body or property is reached when someone agrees, gives permission, or says “yes” to an activity or touching with other persons. Participants must feel free to say “yes” or “no” and feel free to stop the activity at any time. That also means that cajoling, pleading, persuading, taunting, or any form of emotional blackmail after a “no” is unacceptable.

The following violations will result in eviction from the event:

Consent violations of an aggressive or sexual nature. This includes any kind of physical contact with the body of another without their express consent. Stalking or harassment. This includes continuing to follow or engage with someone after they have asked you to stop. Verbal assaults, especially of a continued aggressive and/or sexual nature and hate speech also constitute harassment and will not be tolerated. Endangering others. This includes anything that will put others in serious danger. Do not bring items to an NTXB event that could endanger others, which includes but not limited to firearms, explosives, fireworks, unsafe fire art. Endangering others also includes non-consensual intoxication. Not having a ticket or wearing a wristband for the duration of the event. All participants, volunteers, Leads, LLC, and Batcave members gain entry by purchasing a ticket. Any other entry will be considered trespassing. Destruction, using, or taking of property without the express permission of the owner of said property. If you inadvertently damage another’s property, that is a matter to be resolved between you and the owner of that property. Minors (under the age of 18) that are not accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times. Failure to ensure proper adult supervision or allowing a minor for whom you are responsible to violate any of the stated rules and regulations.

Violations that may result in eviction and are at the LLC’s discretion:

Failure to respect boundaries that are not of an aggressive or sexual nature. Photographing or videoing another participant without their consent. Unsafe Driving, to include art cars, or failure to comply with DMV regulations. Disrespect of the land, such as digging, felling trees or limbs etc. without permission. Failure to comply with NTXB policies, to include Sound, Laser, Fire, and Service Animal policies. Vending or commerce of any kind Possession by or serving alcohol to someone under the age of 21. Effigy, Temple, or other Burn Perimeter violations.

Violations of any of these codes of conduct can result in eviction from the event or banning from one or more future NTXB events. Nothing herein is intended to or shall waive the right of NTXB, LLC to ban or restrict access by an individual or entity as it may determine, in its sole discretion, is warranted.

NTXB complies with all local, state and federal laws and expects the same from its participants.

You can file a complaint of a suspected violation of these codes of conduct by emailing the LLC here. Code of Conduct

NECTR

Be a good NECTR-ine Don’t use, take, or damage anything that isn’t your own without permission. Don’t damage the landowner’s property or land. Don’t leave MOOP on the land. Accept guidelines from NECTR organizers and rangers at the event so we can continue to address issues and have a flexible atmosphere. Don’t intentionally or recklessly endanger others with your dangerous tools/spaces/art pieces. Don’t endanger yourself in such a way that burdens other participants with your safety. Don’t behave in any way that necessitates the use of outside intervention, like the police and fire departments. Be excellent to other NECTR-ines Don’t touch people without consent. Don’t get someone more intoxicated than they consent to being. Don’t mess with other’s personal space or property if they don’t consent. Don’t verbally harass people with aggressive, sexual, or hateful speech. If someone tells you to leave them alone, continuing to make any contact with them is harassment. Be excellent to yourself Practice good self-care. First, speak up. Ask the person to stop. Say no. If you feel unsafe, leave the situation. If you feel uncomfortable but the behavior does not violate the CoC, 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. Bottom line NECTR will not accept any behavior that threatens the safety of participants, the care of the property, or the ability to run the event in good standing with local residents and law enforcement. If any participant asks for another to cease a behavior that violates our code, they are expected to stop immediately. Event organizers may take further measures if the participant doesn’t comply with the request. NECTR reserves the right to immediately revoke a ticket, expel a participant, or ban future attendance for violating any standards in this Code of Conduct. Code of Conduct
