Welcome to the Activist Art WebRing
A WebRing makes traveling between linked sites even easier. Once you have
installed a small block of code links on your webpage, you are linked into a
growing number of other sites with similar themes and content -- without ever
having to update a link page again. Webring.com
takes care of that for you.
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. Are 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
vistors 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.
Webring is once more independent. You no longer have to join Yahoo to
join a webring. If you have not kept up with the migrations, however, you will
need to sign up at Webring.com
your ring site with your ID before you can edit it.
During the time that Yahoo controlled Webring, I created a Ringsurf alternative
for members who refused to associate with Yahoo. Webring is once more independent.
The Webring group of sites is much bigger than the Ringsurf group of siites,
and Webring makes it easier for me to promote the ring and the sites, so I recommend
joining Webring rather than Ringsurf. You still have the option to join the
Activist Art Webring at RingSurf, here.

the digital divide is a social justice issue with me. Therefore I used
to ask members to post an HTML version of the navbar instead of, or in
once, you can add any number of rings to that page without adding any
more code. And if I make changes to the navbar, they are automagically
reflected on your page with no effort by you.
Email me if you
have any questions or problems.
If your webpage address or any other site information (including your email
address) changes, please update your entry! The magic of webring cannot work
without your help.
The Safe Viewing List
The Activist Art ring is and always will be uncensored. Some artists and writers
choose to display their message in graphic language and shocking images. But
while I believe in the right to feedom of speech, I also believe in the right
to freedom of choice. It is especially important to me that abuse survivors
have a way to protect themselves from possibly traumatic triggers. I therefore
have a list-within-a-list, Activist Art member sites that contain no material
that could reasonably be expected to trigger an abuse survivor.

The All-Member Link List
Webrings are easier to maintain than link lists, but are not spidered
by search engines and therefore do not increase the "popularity" rating
(the number of listed sites linked to you) that some search engines use to rank
their listings. Therefore, to further boost our sites and to make
it easier to find folks whether they are on Webring or Ringsurf, I have compiled
a link list of all sites.
The site descriptions on this list are taken directly from the
webring entries, so if you would like a better description, update your webring
