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.)
