Creating Meaningful Communities



If the Internet has done anything, it has freed creativity from the shackles of compartmentalisation. Before Internet, artists needed a mediator, a publisher, a gallery, a curator...in other words, a middleman to bring their
work to the world. Artists were subject to approval, to fashion, to the impramata of the dollar. Now, for the first time in history, artists can disseminate their work without the need for a middle man; writers can publish without waiting for official approval or rejection. And what is even more amazing about the age in which we live, artists can find affirmation, connection, their place in the world together with other artists.
