Welcome, thank you for talking about VanIslArts.ca
This zine is about you, it is by you, and it is for you. It is about sharing and learning and doing and coming together.

Content creators nor the publisher are receiving any kind of remuneration.

Projects and People
If you would like to contribute, or be part of, or share, please let us know. You do not have to be an “artist”. You can be someone who knows how to do something; welding, engraving, carpenter, mathematician, e commerce pro, art promoter, all skills have a place and there is always someone who can use your skills creating what they have imagined. If you don’t have skills, maybe you can find someone who will help you learn. This is what an arts community does. We are art.
Profile Yourself! All Artists, Artisans, Craftspeople, Performers, Writers
We are building a simple and free directory of artist profiles that include a bio with one or two featured works and links back to their own websites or point of sale service page.
Rules of Engagement:
Art is Art: I / we will (do my / our absolute best) not to censor or allow others to distract from what an artist has expressed in their art. This includes your words or performances, see next rule.
Do No Harm: No individual or organization or group or demographic is open for assault. As stated, positive encouraging inviting …. ZERO TOLERANCE.
Learning Opportunity: Should there be an issue that it is important to have addressed, the behaviour and or issue may be fully addressed without individuals or organization being unnecessarily identified (obvious abusive organizations exempt).
