Singing Bears is a community
forum, display gallery and webring for promoting and connecting all those using
creative art to transform our world. Themes may be social justice, homeless
rights, environmental action, ending child abuse -- or a thousand other subjects.
Media may be visual art (including computer generated graphics), written word
(from poetry to journalism) sound and motion and anything else.
The Activist Art webring contains sites that:
Have activist content, on any cause. Only sites promoting hatred or abuse
will be ruled out.
Have original artistic content, of any form: visual, written, musical or
Load with reasonable speed and without errors, for all browsers. Be fully
accessible. Provide alternates or bypass for any Flash, Java, or other elements
that depend on tech not all visitors will have.
Are willing to place the webring code (with or without graphic) on a page
from which visitors can easily navigate to and from all other pages of their
site. I would prefer this to be a contents page, but I expect artists to have
firm ideas about site design, and I'm willing to have you put the webring
code on a separate "webrings" page. But whatever page you put the code on
must either be the page you register with the webring (the page that
visitors to the webring will enter your site on) or be easily, visibly linked
from there with "webrings" in the link text. You are joining a community
— you want people to easily get to your site, and you also want them
to easily travel from your site to your fellow member sites.
None of us can change the
whole world by ourselves.
When Webring was taken over by Yahoos, some members resisted
being taken into the belly of the Beast. I created an alternate ring at Ringsurf
for those members. Webring is once more independent of the Yahoos, and most
of these members have merged back with the larger ring. You are still welcome
to join Ringsurf if you prefer it.
