ZooMachines Festival is dedicated to providing a harassment-free social experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion or game preferences.

We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Anyone violating these rules will be expelled from the festival at the discretion of the organisers. 

Harassment includes verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or games, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the festival with no refund. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of festival staff immediately.

The festival staff will be happy to help participants contact security or police, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event.
We value your attendance. We expect participants to follow these rules at all our venues and social events.

This anti-harassment policy is based on the example policy from the Geek Feminism wiki, created by the Ada Initiative and other volunteers. The policy is licensed under the Creative Commons Zero license. It is public domain, so feel free to copy it, edit and use it.

"Lille did rock! If you are looking for the perfect space to breed great games and meet fantastic people, the Zoo Machines is your with this perfectly organized jam!"
Jana Reinhardt

"Zoo Machines is unlike any other game jam I've ever attended. The focus on teams connecting hardware and software to make genuinely new interactive experiences. I've never seen games that were so much about laughter, testing boundaries, and changing the way we look at familiar things."
Adam Saltsman

"Since my first game jam, I've always found it amazing how a group of strangers can so quickly create something out of nothing. We walk through a wonderful zoo, with machines instead of animals."
Jonathan van Hove

"Zoo Machine is the most inspiring event for interactive creations. It pushes games beyond games towards pure digital art beauty. Zoo machine is a human and digital LSD trip to creativity."
Matthieu Muller

"Clay, wood, plastic: no matter the material, the participants at Zoo Machines will miraculously transform it into an experience you probably haven't had before."
Chris Priestman
