Code of conduct.
The Biennale of Western Balkans (BoWB) operates regionally as a small-scale organisation, run by a dedicated group of people, where mutual respect and support is essential in all administrative and creative procedures. Everything we do in connection with our work at BoWB is measured against ethical standards of conduct, striving to exclude any biased, insulting or disrespectful behaviour.
All participants, speakers, partners and volunteers at BoWB’s events are required to agree with the following code of conduct, in order to maintain a safe environment for all.
We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone during all our programmes, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. We welcome and encourage participation by everyone, as long as it is respectful and constructive, and we commit to safeguard equity, transparency and integrity in the process.
We stand for open knowledge, open technologies and provision of open access material. We aspire to promote inclusivity in every step of the way, and implement good practices in our endeavours.
What is expected and appreciated as a behavioural pattern, is being mindful of your fellow participants, exercise consideration and respect in your speech and actions, and participate in an overall courteous way that will contribute to the health and longevity of this newly-established institution.
We value everyone’s opinion and will do our best to make sure these principles are being consistently followed and effectively applied. If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible.
