We have established a code of conduct which applies to all visitors and people working with or for The Grey Space. This includes staff members (including interns and volunteers), advisory board, presented artists, artists in residence, partners, sponsors, online and offline participants of our activities.

The Grey Space is a space that aims to be inclusive and accessible. The Grey Space is welcoming and hospitable to all and we would like everyone that visits, presents work or works at The Grey Space to feel at home, safe and free to be whoever they are. We strive to create an intentional space everyone can enjoy without experiencing harassment or feeling unsafe. We do our best to nurture a respectful and convivial work environment. We expect cooperation and an open-minded attitude from all those involved to help ensure a safer space for everybody.
