Community Guidelines

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

About these Community Guidelines

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 abides by our Community Guidelines. You can add contemporary art exhibitions and events related to visual culture to ArtRabbit, as long as they are open access. This means no events at private clubs, no open calls and no purposefully offensive content. You should read these Community Guidelines carefully before using the ArtRabbit platform. If you violate these guidelines, your content and/or account will be removed at our discretion. If you have any questions about these Community Guidelines, please contact us on support (at) artrabbit (dot) com. For further information, read our Terms.

In detail

We encourage you to add any open access contemporary art exhibitions and events or any events related to visual culture. We don’t allow 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:


  • 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. While both we and our readers have a pretty broad 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 you like, as long as you’re facilitating something visual culture-related.
  • Upload images and content that are within your rights to use.
  • Save, share, 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’t use the platform for any purpose that is unlawful under any applicable law or prohibited by these Community Guidelines or our Terms.
  • Don’t add any materials that will preclude our dedication to openness and accessibility. That means no purposefully offensive, illegal or inappropriate content, and no content that promotes racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual.
  • Don’t upload any content which infringes the intellectual property rights (e.g. copyright, trade marks and/or confidential information) of any third party. You represent, you own or have obtained all necessary rights to the content you post or share.
  • 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.
  • 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 content that advocates harmful conspiracy theories. An exhibition that explores the patterns in conspiracy thinking is fine; a show that explicitly or implicitly promotes such conspiracies as truth is absolutely not.
  • Don’t promote or contain information that you know or believe to be inaccurate, false or misleading.
  • Don’t engage in or promote commercial activities and/or sales, including but not limited to contests, sweepstakes, barter, advertising and pyramid schemes, without our prior written consent.
  • Don’t add material that presents medical misinformation that may threaten public health, such as anti-vax rhetoric or claims of serious illnesses being a hoax.
  • Don’t add events at private or members-only clubs. If not anyone can stroll in off the street, it's not open access.

How we moderate content on ArtRabbit

We take down anything that doesn’t comply with our guidelines, for the sake of our community members and to ensure that ArtRabbit remains useful and safe for everyone. Because we’re a small team with real human moderators, sometimes we don’t catch everything. If you see something on ArtRabbit that does not comply with our dos and don’ts as outlined above, please let us know by clicking on the “Give Feedback” link on the page in question.

We specifically remove:

  • Purposefully offensive, illegal or inappropriate content.
  • Content that promotes racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual.
  • Material that touts harmful conspiracy theories or medical misinformation.
  • 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 appreciate any relevant additions, but please ensure it’s not already on ArtRabbit. Duplicates take up space and make the platform messier for everyone.
  • Unauthorised copies of intellectual property protected content.

Handling Copyright Claims

We respect intellectual property rights and expect our community to do the same. Here’s our process for addressing copyright claims:

  • If you're an owner of copyright: If you believe your copyright-protected work has been posted on ArtRabbit without authorisation, please contact us at support (at) artrabbit (dot) com with full details of your claim, e.g. the infringing work of concern and confirmation that you are the copyright owner of that work. Upon receiving a valid copyright claim, we'll remove the infringing content from ArtRabbit promptly.

  • If you're a user: Users who post unauthorised copyrighted material will be informed and receive a strike. Accumulate three strikes and your access to ArtRabbit will be revoked, which may include full account deletion.

What do we mean with visual culture?

We understand visual culture 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, but there are many others.
