The Cube values personal safety and everyone’s right, to engage with the space free of harassment, threats, mistreatment or discrimination, especially in connection to race or ethnicity, national origin, gender identity or presentation, sex or sexual orientation, age, religion, disability, physical appearance, language proficiency or citizenship status.
We seek to provide a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment where community members with
diverse views and experiences can engage with the Cube. To help ensure this we have established a Code of Conduct that applies to everyone at our venue, at our off-site venues and events, and to participants in our social media channels. Members, guests, event attendees, user groups, community partners, staff, volunteers, donors, vendors and press are all held to the same standards.
We reserve the right to ban or restrict from our premises, events and programs (on or off-site) anyone who violates this Code of Conduct.
In order to do this, we expect that people who are involved in the Cube to create a healthy culture to make a welcome and inviting place for both volunteers and people who use it by embodying the following principles:
• Welcoming - to all, and particularly to new volunteers
• Positive - looking to have fun and create enjoyment
• Empowering - helping give people the confidence to help themselves, particularly new volunteers
• Accountable - we are accountable for our own behaviour
• Judgement - don’t judge, approach every situation with an open mind
• Collaboration - working together with others in a spirit of openness, honesty and transparency that encourages engagement, collaboration and respectful communication to ensure that the Cube operates in a safe and effective manner
• Inclusive - welcoming people from diverse backgrounds, and being sensitive to the needs of different communities
• Respect - treating others with respect and fairness regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, ethnicity, socio-economic status, mental health status
• Trust & Honesty - working from a starting position of trusting each other and being honest and come from a place of belief, when people share experiences, we support and believe them
• Recognise - people’s boundaries are in different places and that others lives and histories outside the space may be different our own
• Ethical - being respectful of others, honest in what we say, and thinking through the consequences of what we do
• Voices - stay mindful of how much space you take up (bodies, voices and objects) and take responsibility for hearing all voices and for communicating what you need to in an open and clear simple way
• Communication - communicate in an honest and open way and wherever possible in person as digital communication can often lead to miscommunication
• Democratic - working to deepen and improve democracy within our organisation
• Environmentally Responsible - promoting activities and behaviours which are sustainable, and which benefit the environment
• Safety - Ensuring that people using and involved in the Cube do so free from harassment, bullying, abusive language, threats, and oppression
• Bullying, intimidation, stalking or threats in person or online
• Sustained disruption of events
• Violence or assault of any kind
• Physical intimidation
• Inappropriate or unwanted physical contact
• Unwelcome sexual attention or joking
• Use of epithets, slurs or negative stereotyping
• Possession of firearms, explosives or other weapons on our premises or at an off-site event
• Any conduct that endangers the life, safety, health or well-being of any filmgoer, guest, program attendee, member, employee, volunteer, vendor or other person at our venue or at one of our off-site events.
