Loop Code of Conduct (Long Version)
At Loop, it’s important that we respect each other, listen with open ears, and honor the humanity of each individual we meet. Everyone has a different story and a different perspective, so it’s crucial that each member of the Loop community brings a mindset of empathy and understanding, especially when someone’s viewpoint may be quite different from our own. There is always more we can learn about the world, about music, and about people.
Loop encourages community members to represent themselves authentically, and seeks to foster open, honest, and supportive discussions with a wide variety of Loop Community members.
Community members are encouraged to notify the organizers of behaviors that are inconsistent with the Code of Conduct.
