Code of Conduct

With the aim of promoting a safe, inclusive and open space at the Network Music Festival, the organizing team propose a code of conduct. We invite everyone attending the festival and the communities around it to work for a respectful and positive environment. As organizers we work hard to preserve the warm and open atmosphere that characterized past Network Music Festivals.

Although this list cannot be exhaustive, we explicitly honour diversity in age, gender, gender identity or expression, culture, ethnicity, language, national origin, political beliefs, profession, race, colour, immigration status, education level, size, family status, religion, sexual orientation, class, socioeconomic status, and ability. We will not tolerate discrimination based on any of the protected characteristics above.

As participants, please be mindful of the effect your words and actions may have on others and that your boundaries may not be the same as the boundaries of others for either cultural, education or personal reasons. If you act or speak in a way that someone finds inappropriate, it’s inappropriate to that time, place and/or person. If somebody tells you that you are making them uncomfortable, please stop doing so.

Harassment, and other exclusionary behaviour are not welcome at the festival. Harassment includes:

  • offensive comments or attitudes related to any protected characteristic listed above;
  • deliberate intimidation, threatening, stalking, following or doxing;
  • discriminatory jokes and language including misgendering;
  • sustained disruption of events, workshops, talks or performances;
  • inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual or suggestive remarks;
  • inappropriate use of imagery or offensive materials.

This applies to all events and venues of the festival, including all chat platforms, social media as well as in all one-on-one communications pertaining to the festival.

The festival prioritizes marginalized people’s safety. We will not act on complaints regarding ‘reverse’ -isms, including ‘reverse racism,’ ‘reverse sexism,’ and ‘cisphobia’ and so forth.

Unacceptable behaviour from any community member, including sponsors and those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated. Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behaviour is expected to comply immediately.

If a community member engages in unacceptable behaviour, the festival organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from the festival without warning and with no refund.

If you are subject to or witness unacceptable behaviour, or have any other concerns, please notify an organiser or volunteer as soon as possible.
