Squeaky Wheel envisions communities that use electronic media and film to celebrate freedom of expression and diversity of voice. To ensure our space, workshops, and events are a positive and safe environment, Squeaky Wheel expects employees, board members, artists, students and audiences to be respectful and considerate of others. Squeaky Wheel will remove anyone that we deem is enacting the following:
- Oppressive behavior: any conduct that demeans, marginalizes, rejects, threatens or harms anyone on the basis of identity, background, or ability.
- Harassment: deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; disruption of events; aggressive, slanderous, derogatory, or threatening comments online or in person; and unwanted physical or sexual attention.
- Destructive behavior: damaging or altering any part of the building, inside or out, including furniture and equipment; damaging, altering or using other people’s belongings, and other conduct which could reasonably make other attendees feel unsafe.
If you witness or are subject to unacceptable behavior, or experience marginalizing or silencing behavior that limits your full participation at Squeaky Wheel, please talk to a representative of Squeaky Wheel. At events, you can identify SW representatives by their fluorescent green lanyards.
