Organizer Code of Conduct

Three Cranes Grove, ADF, is a safe and welcoming community that values inclusion, consent, hospitality, and integrity. We expect organizers to be considerate and to work together with presenters and attendees to create a safe space for each other. This includes an intolerance for behaviors that show abuse, hate, discrimination, or racism in any form. We invite all individuals to participate in event organization regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, military status, mental or physical disability, location, employment, family status, or personal spiritual belief or path, provided that the individual is willing to participate in our activities or events in a polite and non-judgmental fashion. 


We have additional guidelines for minors (and adults working with minors) attending the festival.  Please see the Conduct Specific to Minors policy (still under revision) for more information. 


Behavior that undermines or opposes inclusion, consent, hospitality, or integrity will not be tolerated. Organizers shall not knowingly engage in activities and/or behaviors that violate the inherent rights of others or encourage such behavior. (Please see the Attendee Code of Conduct for examples.) 


Three Cranes Grove acknowledges that organizer responsibilities extend beyond the above activities and behaviors. Organizers are therefore also held to the following requirements, including but not limited to: working responsibly and respectfully with your fellow organizers/committee members, not engaging in favoritism regarding presenters, presentations, cabin assignments, etc., keeping transparent, clear, and accessible notes and records regarding any activities undertaken as an organizer, sobriety during assigned work times, not spreading malicious gossip and falsehoods about the event and/or attendees, presenters, or other organizers, and any other responsibilities and duties as assigned. 


All those organizing activities or events hosted by Three Cranes Grove, ADF are expected to abide by the Code of Conduct. Three Cranes reserves the right to take punitive action against anyone whose behavior violates the Code of Conduct. Punitive action includes, but is not limited to, suspension, expulsion, and banning from all current and/or future Grove activities or events. No refund(s) shall be issued in the event of punitive action. The Three Cranes Grove Senior Druid holds final say in any and all punitive action taken.


If you experience or witness any behavior that violates the Code of Conduct, we invite you to bring this to the attention of the Senior Druid in a timely fashion. All organizers are expected to know and understand the legal reporting requirements that they are subject to. Anyone who witnesses or is made aware of assault or abuse is expected to report to the Senior Druid or other staff member in charge. We will investigate and take appropriate action.
