Welcome to Fixfest UK, an event for anyone interested in repairing in their community. This event is run by The Restart Project as part of our work to promote community repair.
Anyone is welcome to join, but our target audience is people already active and volunteering in our community. When getting involved in our event, we ask everyone to respect our community values by following the code of conduct below.
Code of Conduct
We are social
Everything starts with people and what we can achieve together. Fixfest UK is designed to connect people and spark online conversation and offline activity. Talk about what you care about, share your passions and don’t be afraid to join the conversation.
We are radically open and actively inclusive
We’re a diverse bunch from all walks of life and with different life experiences. We welcome all people willing to be radically open: of all appearances, genders, sexualities, nationalities, abilities, backgrounds and political leanings. We are an actively open community, meaning we need to go the extra mile to help traditionally excluded people feel welcome.
It’s really important that we make people feel welcome straight away so that we don’t lose them. You can put people at ease in really simple ways: acknowledging their presence (saying hi in the chat), letting them know how it works (what do they need to do next, what can they expect), offering them a ‘way-in’ (a way to contribute).
We take time to get to know each other and consider how others may think and feel, and how comments or actions may be perceived in a diverse community.
We all make mistakes or assumptions about others, no matter how open we think we are, but please consider the potential impact of your contributions on the people around you. When people express discomfort or raise an issue, listen carefully first before reacting. When responding to others, ask yourself the question: would I say it to their face?
We are hands-on
Share your skills! You may be able to answer someone else’s burning question and make the community a richer place in the process. Offer your skills to session leaders and be ready to turn your camera on and share something. Offer to give a 5 minute lightning talk. Or even propose a session for the remaining open session.
We have fun
We welcome anything that promotes a spirit of fun, as long as it doesn’t hurt other people. Please, no jokes, words or images that come at the expense of others. Be sensitive to other users around you, and don’t make violent or sexual references. Those things kill conversations, just like in real life.
We are system-changing
Our inspirations are global and our impact can be too. Our individual and local efforts all add up and allow us to focus on the big picture stuff.
