Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Friday 4th May 2018
There are people who, upon hearing the phrase ‘Code of Conduct’, respond with panicked cries of ‘Censorship!’, ‘What about my creative freedom?’ and ‘PC gone Mad!’
But a Code of Conduct is simply a set of boundaries and guidelines that an organisation or community agree to in order to foster a safe and constructive working environment. And as creative leaders, it is our responsibility to nurture and protect the spaces we lead, encouraging them to be inclusive and respectful.
Knowing how to write your own can be intimidating, but if you have the right tools (including a willingness to challenge yourself and to listen to critical feedback) you can take the next steps to better serving your community. This workshop uses discussion, group work, and individual feedback to help you develop the first draft of your Code of Conduct, and prepares you to take it back to your community for discussion and implementation.
