Over the past 6 years we have hosted our forums Facebook for two main reasons: it has provided a space for a community of artists to learn, collaborate, grow and enjoy each other, and it has been accessible to everyone around the world and is easy to use.
However, we also recognize that Facebook is more than just an objective platform and is controlled by people who have abused their power through breaches of privacy and even ethical standards.
This puts us in a difficult position because, while we do not support the leaders of Facebook, we would never want to exclude the users that rely on this platform as a method to connect and communicate. For that reason, are working on creating our own custom community app that provides security and is easy to use for everyone.
We hope to have this ready to go early in 2021. Please be patient with us as we make this change.
Carla and Steve
