Community Guidelines

ArtRabbit is all about openness and accessibility. We want everyone to be able to share their contemporary art and visual culture events, to engage with the ones that interest them, and to participate in discussions about art and culture.

tl;dr

Our Community Guidelines are an important code of conduct for maintaining a safe, useful and welcoming platform for all. ArtRabbit is a user-generated, open-submission platform. That means the wider community entrusts you to upload quality, relevant material that abide by our Community Guidelines. You can add contemporary art exhibitions and events related to visual culture to ArtRabbit if they are open access. This means no events at private clubs, no open calls and no purposefully offensive content. If you violate these guidelines, your account and/or content will be removed at our discretion. For further information, read our Terms.

In detail

We encourage you to add any contemporary art exhibitions and events or any events related to visual culture that are open access. What we don’t allow is any materials that will preclude our dedication to openness and accessibility. Doing so will result in the removal of your content and potentially the deletion of your account without warning. To make it easier for you, we've compiled a list of the dos and don'ts:

Dos

  • List events that are related to contemporary visual culture. By visual culture, we mean everything within culture expressed via a creative practice in a broad sense. Whilst both our readers and we have a pretty open-minded understanding of this, some things are very obviously not within these limits and will be removed from the platform if added. Scroll down for more on our take on visual culture.

  • List ephemeral art events, events at pop up locations, tattoo studios, your back yard, anywhere as long as you’re facilitating something visual culture-related.

  • Upload images and content that are within your rights to use.

  • Save, share and attend events, and encourage others to do the same.

  • Share your unique perspectives on art events via our comments section.

  • Treat other community members with respect and dignity.

Don'ts

  • Don’t spam the platform with unrelated content, events, repetitive comments or fake profiles. They will be taken down!

  • Don’t submit open calls and artist opportunities as an event. All open calls should be submitted via this form.

  • Don’t add any materials that will preclude our dedication to openness and accessibility. That means no purposefully offensive, illegal or inappropriate content, no content that promotes racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual.

  • Don’t add events at private members-only clubs. If not anyone can stroll in off the street, it's not open access.

  • Don’t use copyrighted materials without credit, or take credit for content that isn't yours.

  • Don’t use ArtRabbit to facilitate any illegal or criminal activities.

  • Don’t upload intentionally offensive or sexually explicit content to ArtRabbit.

  • Don’t be disrespectful or use abusive language that is degrading to any of our community members.

How we moderate content on ArtRabbit

We take down anything that does not comply with our guidelines for the sake of our community members, and to ensure that ArtRabbit remains useful and safe for everyone. Specifically, we remove:

  • Purposefully offensive, illegal or inappropriate content.

  • Content that promotes racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual.

  • Explicitly pornographic material.

  • Fake or spam profiles.

  • Advertising for jobs, open calls, and artist opportunities. You can submit opportunities here to be considered for our editorial list of open calls.

  • Events that have no relationship/link to visual culture, organisations that neither host nor run visual culture events.

  • Duplicate events and organisations. We do appreciate any relevant additions, but please make sure it’s not already on ArtRabbit. Duplicates take up space and make the platform messier for everyone.

What do we mean with visual vulture?

We understand visual vulture to be where creative practices convene with philosophy, politics, social studies and other disciplines. This may include art, performance, photography, design, architecture, memes, histories of representation, digital art and technology, to name a few. We owe much of our understanding of visual culture to the department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths University.
