Art+Feminism Safe Space Policy[edit]

Art-and-feminism.svg

The organizers of this event are dedicated to providing a harassment-free event experience for everyone, regardless of race, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, age, religion, or marital status.

Harassment includes offensive comments related to any protected personal characteristic, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

This applies to everyone, including event staff and sponsors. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of event staff immediately. Event staff will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.

Reporting Incidents[edit]

If you need to report an incident of harassment please first contact the organizer of your local event, to see if the issue can be resolved locally. If you need to report the incident to us, seek advice or an investigation, or seek other legal or educational resources about how to respond or report an issue of harassment within or without the Wikipedia community, (i.e. local law enforcement, local sexual assault hotline, emergency and non-emergency medical resources, taxi companies, etc.) please contact us directly at artandfeminismwiki@gmail.com.
