ArtConnect is a platform for you to represent yourself or your organization. All of the information you provide must be accurate and authentic. You own the content that you share so make sure to post authentic works that you have the right to post publicly. Don’t post anything that you didn’t make yourself or that you have copied from other places on the Internet.
For artists that means any artwork or projects you upload must be your own original work. For organizations, you must have the rights to publicly share the artworks, credit the artists, and demonstrate a legitimate and ongoing relationship with the artists whose work you represent. Don’t upload any images, artworks, or projects that you aren’t involved in. If you want to show appreciation for other people’s work, you can find them on ArtConnect and like or follow their work.
Use ArtConnect to create professional connections, build relationships and grow your network.
It is important to respect the diversity of members on ArtConnect. We actively strive to promote an environment where diverse voices, opinions, and perspectives on art are welcome.
Please be respectful and professional when commenting or communicating with other members. That means thoughtful opinions and critiques are welcome as long as they are relevant, on-topic, considered, and constructive. They should be open for discussion and intended to create a dialogue among members. Don’t use the comment feature or messaging feature to harass or spam other members or exclusively for self-promotion to your profile, project, or to promote external links.
Any content or comments that contain threats, hate speech, or messaging that degrades or shames specific groups or individuals will be removed. Mass posting, commenting, and messaging is considered spam and will not be tolerated.
ArtConnect is committed to providing clear and detailed information through relevant content that is related to the arts and visual culture. In order to do that, we work hard to limit the spread of spam and will delete any profiles or posts that are deemed by our curators and content moderators as spam, inappropriate, or offensive content. We will prevent any posts that abuse our platform or violate our terms of service, especially those that seek to artificially increase viewership or distribute content en masse for commercial gain.
To avoid having your content considered spam:
- Prioritize transparency and authenticity: fill out profiles and make posts with detailed and accurate information.
- Do not create fake profiles or profiles for products or services that are unrelated to art or visual culture.
- Don’t create profiles or posts, or engage with content either manually or automatically at very high frequencies.
