General Guidelines and Rules
It is expected that everyone who chooses to use this space observes these policies and guidelines.
Failure to adhere to our policies and guidelines will result in the termination of your reservation and can result in an indefinite ban.
Explicit or derogatory content
Studio 20/20 is also home to the G Collective—a collaborative workspace for creatives.The space is not soundproof, so we ask that guests please keep the noise and music levels to a reasonable volume.
This is a safe space for creatives and other guests. That said, music with explicit or derogatory content is not permitted.
Fine art portraiture with nude subjects must be photographed in our closed studio. You must specify this at the time of reservation.
Liquor, alcohol, smoking, vaping, and the use of recreational drugs, are not permitted in the space. Intoxication will not be tolerated.
Use of degrading language
There is no place in this space for language that is openly or casually degrading to a person or group. Any words or phrases, no matter how seemingly innocuous, that perpetuate negative stereotypes and communicate exclusion are not allowed.
Some of these can be subtle and said without any ill-will, which is why we encourage users to examine their own language and use this guide as an opportunity for learning. For some examples of language that we are trying to avoid, please see the below.
- Racism is deeply rooted across societies globally, exists among all social classes, and is connected to a long history of violence, oppression, and domination.
- Addressing individuals or a group of people in a diminutive, derogative, or malicious way based on their (assumed) race and ethnic background is racist, disrespectful, and harmful.
- We do not tolerate any racist behavior, slurs, statements, or jokes.
- We strongly advise avoiding gendered pronouns as well as any gendered terms.
- Everyone is expected to respect each other’s chosen pronouns. Try to avoid using words like “dude” or “guys” to address groups. This shorthand contributes to linguistic barriers that drive exclusion and an unwelcoming environment.
If you feel you have been falsely or unfairly accused of violating this Code of Conduct, you should notify the space manager with a concise description of your grievance.
Your grievance will be handled in accordance with space’s existing governance policies.
