[resource-net] Could we take a group stand for #blacklivesmatter ?

Hi Everyone,

After thinking about it I suppose it doesn't make sense because we should
really speak out about all world tragedies
rather than just cherry picking the ones we might have relations to. Or
otherwise just discussing more about what could be done locally.
Well as I said I didn't know but just wanted to put the idea out there to
hear what others think.

For me, this also brings up the topic of having a code-of-conduct or some
way of stating what we as a collective stand for and
the kinds of behaviour we do and don't support.

We (School of MA) use the Berlin Code of Conduct

It doesn't appear there is one for Resource Network
<https://transmediale.de/content/resource-transmedial-culture-berlin> or
for transmediale <https://transmediale.de/> either.
Can anyone confirm?

Would anyone else be interested in considering to write one or to adopt one?
It feels like now is a good time to make clear what we do and don't stand
for moving forward.
But curious what the rest of you think.

I know there are like 100 people at least on this Resource mailing list.
Happy to hear from voices who don't normally speak up! But of course, just
as happy to hear from anyone at any time! :)
