Codes of Conduct @ kil.n.it
Working in shared spaces has many positive advantages with easy information sharing and new friends, but there are unspoken boundaries than can be discussed to save anxiety and irritation in the workplace.
@ kil.n.it we strive to find a balance between private production of art and sharing space within communal facilities.
1: Kil.n.it’s “Open Door Policy” is a helpful cue @ the studios to indicate if interruptions for chatting are ok. If the door is closed, let them be!
*Fire Wardens and Staff are permitted to check on/ artists if necessary.
2: “Consider your Neighbour” is something that applies from the carpark up! Kil.n.it exists as a creative set of spaces for loads of people to create at once, situated within residential and community facilities. This means that what we do can easily affect others more than our immediate crew. Always be considerate of pollution of dangerous fumes, excessive noise or creative projects encroaching upon shared spaces and walkways, and keep it to a minimum.
3: “tidy up after yourself and put it back if you borrowed it”: Kil.n.it has loads of equipment at hand to get things done everyday. You can borrow or use these things, as long as you make sure it is clean (and surrounding work area) and return them to their original good-state within the day of use. This includes kitchen facilities, Workshop tools or cleaning equipment.
4: “No Judgments” This space is free from homophobia, transphobia, sexism, racism, bullying, ceramiphobia and all other prejudices. You are welcome to be you here, to make what you want, and anything that makes you feel unwelcome is not cool!
Always report anything that is not welcoming!
5: “no-to-low dust, no worries!” Kil.n.it is full of clay and it gets dusty, please always wet wipe areas clean after working, mop regularly and have a mask on if you are working with dry powders.
6: “Not yours? Ask before you pick it up”: Ceramics can be fragile, belongings can have great importance to their owners, and you don’t want to be that guy who accidentally breaks something important. So basically if it isn’t yours, let it be.
