Code of Conduct & Safe Spaces Policy

The Festival aims to provide opportunities that promote its core values, and will do so in a way that such care is taken to avoid the exclusion of minorities and oppressed persons. We believe the fluent understanding of systems that many game makers and players have means games cultures are at an advantage to begin talking about difficult issues related to systemic oppression in our greater communities, and we’d love to be the place to start having those conversations. We can’t have those conversations without providing an explicitly safe space for people to talk.

Freeplay is a place where anyone who wishes to contribute meaningfully and in good faith can have a chance to do so, and prides itself on finding voices that are not always heard.

Our full and detailed Code of Conduct will be available closer to the opening of the festival.
