Code of Conduct (downloadable pdf) by Not In Our House: NIOH is a website created to address sexual harassment, discrimination, intimidation, and bullying in Chicago’s theatre community, featuring this draft Code of Conduct.
The Code of Conduct Pilot Group (COCPG) is a group of theatres in Chicago that seeks to create, adopt, and abide by a Code of Conduct (COC) for creating and performing live theatre and performance. The COC seeks to nurture communication, safety, respect, and accountability of participants at all levels of theatrical production. Particular interests include:
- Spaces free of harassment; whether it be sexual, or based in race, gender, religion, ethnic origin, color, or ability;
- Nurturing environments that allow even-greater challenge to ourselves, our audience and our communities; risk of mind and body, and freedom to create theatre that represents the full-range of human experience;
- Encouraging additional theatres to adopt the COC, and to provide mentorship during that process.
