Art Camp is committed to an inclusive, collaborative, caring and respectful community environment to ensure that our programming, conversations, projects, and events offer extraordinary and joyful learning experiences for everyone.
This Code of Conduct is a living document; an adaptation and an amalgamation of policies and codes of many amazing organizations. We really appreciate the way the CETI Institute and the Area for Virtual Art has handled theirs, so we took the liberty of quoting them as a guideline.
This code of conduct applies to all our VR spaces, programs, projects and events we gather in. Participants are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules. This code applies equally to staff, volunteers, organizers, attendees and members of our extended community. This isn’t an exhaustive list of things that you can’t do but a guide to make it easier to enrich all of us and the communities in which we participate.
We are a community of professionals, and we conduct ourselves professionally.
Be kind to others.
Be friendly and patient.
Be welcoming. We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities. This includes, but is not limited to members of any race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, color, immigration status, social and economic class, educational level, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, size, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.
Be respectful, thoughtful, and intentional in your actions and words.
If you experience or observe discrimination, harassment, or violations of this code of conduct, or feel threatened or unsafe please contact us immediately during events or email to firstname.lastname@example.org! We will respond as promptly as we can.
We do not tolerate harassment or disrespect of participants at our gatherings or VR spaces in any form.
Harassment includes but is not limited to offensive or abusive verbal or written comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability or illness, appearance, race, or religion. If someone asks you to stop, please stop!
Damage to, theft of, or unapproved modifications of our technology, equipment, and infrastructure especially in ways that might cause harm to a community member or our mission are considered abusive behavior and violations of the code of conduct.
Please respect the expectations of privacy at our events and in our spaces. Violations of our communities' expectations of privacy include: gathering and sharing of any data of/about community members without consent; publication of non-harassing private communication; sharing any information revealing personal, identifying and/or contact information; or sharing images/videos/recordings taken during our events without the consent of the individuals involved.
Anyone who violates this Code of Conduct or other institute policies may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces/programs/events/institute at the discretion of institute staff/event organizers without a refund.
All determinations are at the sole discretion of Art Camp, and the decision of the leading Art Camp representative will be final. Severe breaches of this Code of Conduct may result in disqualification from participating in future events. Individuals expelled due to violating this Code of Conduct will not be eligible for a refund or other consolation.
