Code of Conduct

Welcome to Radix: a not-for-profit autonomous collective of hackers and makers. The Radix hacklab is a radical, community-run space for people to come together to learn, share, organise and create, and we can only do that by respecting different opinions, skills and interests.

All participants in Radix should aim to be excellent to each other, and actively work on making our community inclusive for people of all backgrounds. This is why we have a Code of Conduct, with as few rules as possible, but as many as are necessary.

All people should feel at ease to collaborate and express themselves in Radix spaces without fearing any form of attack, reprisal or harassment. By making our space safe we can be dangerous together.

We are intolerant of intolerance, exploitation and dominance, which includes:

  • Offensive comments related to gender, gender identity and expression (e.g. deliberate misgendering), sexual orientation, disability, mental illness, neuro(a)typicality, physical appearance, body size, race, religion and a person’s lifestyle choices and practices (e.g., food, health, parenting, drugs, employment).
  • Abuse of power relations (e.g., teacher-student hierarchy; privilege (white, socio-economic/class, gender, heterosexual, cis); knowledge; communication skills; mental or physical ability; seniority as a participant, etc.).
  • Sustained disruption of discussions (e.g., sealioning, regularly getting angry and aggressive).
  • Expecting others to clean up after you.
  • Smoking during any indoor meetings. Breaks should be taken during meetings for smoking outside the meeting room. Outside of meetings, smokers should ask for consent from other people present before smoking.
  • Exercising, promoting or justifying hierarchy and exploitation (e.g., exploitation of the environment and human labour for profit; hierarchical decision-making like needing bosses and elected representatives).
  • Violence, including threats and incitement of violence towards any participant.
  • Deliberate intimidation and bullying.
  • Stalking.
  • Non-consensual photography or recording, including surveillance of online activity.
  • Unwelcome sexual attention or contact.
  • Continued one-on-one communication after requests to cease.
  • Malicious defamation or deliberate “outing” of any aspect of a person’s identity without their consent, except as necessary to protect other participants or other vulnerable people from intentional abuse.
  • Publication of non-harassing private or internal communication, or participants’ personal information.

Participants asked to stop any of the behaviour listed above are expected to comply immediately. If not, the Radix assembly may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the Radix space and warning other participants and the general public about their behaviours.
