Presenter Code of Conduct

Three Cranes Grove, ADF, is a safe and welcoming community that values inclusion, consent, hospitality, and integrity. We expect both presenter and host to be considerate and to work together to create a safe space for each other and event attendees. This includes an intolerance for behaviors that show abuse, hate, discrimination, or racism in any form. We invite all individuals to present at our events, 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. Presenters shall not knowingly engage in activities and/or behaviors that violate the inherent rights of others or encourage such behavior, either by their presentation material or their own actions. Presenters are expected to respect the cultural integrity and use of cultural items of cultures they are not a member of. Presenters have a responsibility to check their sources and presentation material for such items. (Please see the Attendee Code of Conduct for examples.) Three Cranes Grove acknowledges that some presentations may utilize these activities and behaviors as examples of “what not to do”; please indicate in your proposal if you are doing so. Furthermore, you must notify the organizers of any changes to your presentation no later than four (4) weeks prior to the event. 


All those presenting at 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 event organizer or our Senior Druid in a timely fashion. All presenters 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.
