BWW Code of Conduct
BWW Code of Conduct for Facilitators & Attendees
Brisbane Writers Workshop is committed to creating safe, respectful spaces for attendees and facilitators. By participating in Brisbane Writers Workshop courses, we all agree to abide by the BWW Code of Conduct.
As facilitators and attendees, we seek to:
- uphold and contribute to a respectful, inclusive environment.
- ensure everyone has opportunities to speak and participate.
- photograph or record attendees with expressed permission only.
- approach the BWW team regarding questions, concerns, or conflicts with the code in a timely manner.
As facilitators and attendees, we understand that:
- aggressive, racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ageist, ableist, bullying or discriminatory actions or language will not be tolerated.
- the BWW code of conduct applies to both in-person and online courses as well as social media.
- we may be asked to leave a venue or online workshop if we do not abide by the BWW code of conduct. Regarding paid events, we understand refunds may not be offered for code breaches.
- BWW workshops are held in person and online through Bunya House, a Moreton Bay Regional Council venue, at city and regional council libraries, and through the Queensland Writers Centre. Their codes of conduct are similar to the BWW code of conduct.
