All posts and comments are subject to the approval of the admin team. Before posting on our website or social media, please ensure they align with the below guidelines:
-Please step into this community with a willingness to connect and support one another. Before you post, please check in with yourself and see if your comment or message is kind, constructive, helpful, or inspiring. Please refrain from submitting posts or comments with harsh language, complaints, or negativity. If you have a legitimate concern, please email our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
-Please refrain from participating in gossip or triangulation. In this community, we hold space for each other, see the best in each other, and put our most authentic selves forward at all times. Please avoid spreading negative rumors or judgment about community members. If you feel unsafe, please notify our team of your concern.
-Please refrain from any type of hate speech or bullying. We believe in the power of restorative justice through community dialogue. Immediate removal from social media or our online membership will result from commentary or posts that contribute to racism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, fatphobia, or ableism. You are welcome to reach out to admins if you have any questions and/or concerns. If you leave harmful comments of this sort on our Instagram profile, your account may be blocked or restricted.
-Please report any abusive content directly to our team at email@example.com to facilitate the content's removal, rather than engaging with the group member or commenting on social media.
-Please be polite and courteous in all communications with all members and staff. Advice, constructive criticism, and healthy disagreements may arise, but please refrain from personal attacks, hurtful comments, or harassing members no matter the situation. If you submitted to an open call, for example, and your work was not chosen, please refrain from saying hurtful things to our hardworking staff or curators who support hundreds of artists and go through thousands of submissions each year.
-We are here for you, and it's important that you advocate for yourself. Your success and joy are in our best interest, and we look forward to sharing your beautiful art, work, and success with our audience.
-If you are sharing content from our website or social media, please credit the original source which may include any artists, photographers and writers. We do not own the copyright to any artwork so in order to do right by the creator(s), we highly encourage you to always do your due diligence and give proper credit where it is due. The creators will appreciate it. Otherwise, we cannot be held liable for any disagreements that may arise for improper reposting or sharing.
-If you are submitting your art to an open call or other opportunity, please know that your work is not guaranteed to get selected. We invite diverse curators from all backgrounds to ensure we are representing a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and career levels in each issue, exhibition, or other opportunity. Because inclusion is not guaranteed, it can be disappointing to get the notification or juror's results. Please be kind to both the juror, the selected artists, and the team, and refrain from speaking negatively. Please review all opportunities thoroughly and with care before submitting your work. We welcome you to participate, but please make sure you are fully aware of the process and read the FAQ and prospectus page before submitting.
