All community members are responsible for promoting a healthy Groupmuse culture, but hosts have a special responsibility to represent Groupmuse's mission, community standards, and values at their events.
Before you host, we recommend reading through these below:
Groupmuse aims to create meaning and fulfillment in people’s lives and to change the way that people understand the role of great art in daily life. We do this by using great classical music to build local communities safely and inclusively and by empowering communities to support local professional artists. We use fair and transparent systems to make these connections wherever musicians and audiences are ready for them.
Groupmuse's Community Standards
As a host, your groupmuse should be:
- Inclusive: Be open-minded about welcoming old friends and new.
- Accessible: Not all homes are accessible to all people, but do your best to accommodate all types of guests.
- Safe: We do our best to vet all community members, but we need your help to create a safe environment for everyone.
- Respectful: Try to be understanding of all guests’ ways of being, even if you don’t understand them, and they should do the same for you.
Mysticism: We believe in the power of music to help us find the inexpressible, unknown, and nameless beauties of life, and to feel part of something larger than ourselves.
Human Connection: We believe in creating spaces where people can gather regularly and share human experiences in the real world.
Responsible Impact: We want to spread Groupmuse all around the world, but never at the expense of our values or our community.
Empowering Others: We believe in enabling others, entrusting them with our confidence and the power to make their own decisions.
Honesty: We believe that honesty, trust, and transparency are crucial building blocks for any community.
Proactive Empathy: We believe in making a deliberate effort to seek out, encourage, and respond to every voice.
Wellness: We believe in a balanced, healthy, and good-humored approach to work and play.
Substance and Profundity: Groupmuse seeks to present art that is time-tested, provocative, and worthy of study.
We hope these resonate with you! If you think Groupmuse is right for you, check out setting up your first groupmuse.
