Jam Rules

Don’t be a jerk. Respect your fellow jammers, the space, and the event organizers.

Keep your voice down where people are working. We want a casual atmosphere, but folks who want to get into the zone must be respected too.

Please use headphones for anything with audio!

Clothes are not optional and must be worn at all times…good god people!

No alcohol in the Jam space – This is a site-rule, and can lose us the site if violated, so please be smart!

We reserve the right to refuse attendance & or admittance to anyone we see fit.

Code of Conduct

GBC JAM is dedicated to providing a safe space for our jammers.

We insist that everyone who uses the space remains mindful of and takes responsibility for their speech and behavior.

This includes:

Enforcement

Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.

Anyone who engages in sustained unacceptable behavior may be removed from the jam, and banned from future events.

What To Do if You Need Help

If you witness or are subject to unacceptable behavior, please approach any of our volunteers or staff for help.

Your conversation will be held in confidence.

When you come to us with a problem during an event, it is our top priority to help you feel safe as quickly as possible. Then, we will warn or remove the offender depending on the circumstances, taking your and the community’s safety and wishes into account.

Diversity and Inclusiveness Statement

GBC JAM and its community values and recognizes diversity, and defends and builds equitable experiences. We are committed not only to including marginalized voices and bodies, but also to actively fighting racism, sexism, and oppression.

We welcome and advocate for the presence and contributions of all people regardless of their ability, age, body size, cultural background, education, ethnic origin, gender expression, gender identity, immigration status, language, marital status, nationality, physical appearance, political affiliations, race, religion, sexual orientation, sexuality, status as a parent, socioeconomic status, choice of video games, or other such factors.

Prejudice, oppression, and discrimination are detrimental to the health and growth of our community and the individuals who are a part of it. Supporting the visibility of our diverse lives enhances the experiences of all community members. We recognize and honor our differences and vigorously defend the convention as a safer and equitable space.
