COMMUNITY GUIDELINES • TERMS AND CONDITIONS • USER AGREEMENT
I (“Participant”) agrees to the following terms and conditions, and community guidelines regarding my participation in the Art2Life (“A2L”) Creative Visionary Path program.
CARE, COMPASSION AND RESPECT. Please take responsibility for the energy you bring into our community. Please be thoughtful, especially when judging others artwork. We need honest feedback obviously, but offer it along with a positive idea or tip that can help lead to a solution. Critique others in a way that you would like to be. Treat everyone with care, compassion and respect. Healthy debate about ideas is natural, and virtual communication can be tricky sometimes, but personal attacks are not acceptable. Ever. If you’re feeling upset about something another member has said, or shared, take some time before responding. If unclear about how to respond, reach out to one of our Support Team members.
KEEP IT POSITIVE. This is a positive environment for creative support. Please don’t gossip or trash talk about any of our CVP members or anyone else for that matter. We don’t need to put others down even when we feel frustrated. If you have a challenging issue, either with the program, a team member, or any community member, resolve it directly via email or even a call. Keep it private and outside of our community. If you are unclear about how to respond to someone, please reach out to Support at email@example.com for assistance.
GIVE AND YOU WILL RECEIVE. Ask for what you need. If you want feedback from your fellow CVP members, ask for it. If you’re stuck and need some ideas...ask. If you’re not getting what you need when you post, check your ask. Was it clear? If not, ask again. Always assume positive intent and reach out. Give help to your fellow CVP members. Share what you’re working on. Share when you have figured something out, especially when others are still struggling with the same issue. Share what you’ve found. Share what challenges you. Share your wins. Cheer for others. Keep the focus on sharing, support and encouragement. Give more than you ask...and we’ll all benefit.
BE ORIGINAL. Please do not copy, steal or share any community member’s intellectual property. If you have a question about using another CVP member’s content, check with them first. Do not assume permission. All content on the CVP website, including all the videos and downloads are for your personal use only.
NO PITCH POLICY. The purpose of the Art2life CVP Portal and Facebook group is for our growing community of artists to share, support and inspire each other in relationship to creating and improving their art. In an effort to keep the Art2life CVP Portal and Facebook group clear of advertisements and offerings, please do not post blogs, newsletters, workshop/course offerings, services relating to art, book releases, and/or your individual art for sale. (Note: The one exception is that we do allow exhibition or art show announcements to be posted in the group.) Please do not automatically add Art2life CVP Members to your newsletter and/or email list. No spamming and/or violating another Member’s privacy is allowed. If this guideline is repeatedly ignored, it could result in your removal from the program. If you are uncertain whether what you are sharing or asking is appropriate, please reach out to Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FACEBOOK USAGE. If you decide to form a subgroup and want to create a Facebook group, please follow these guidelines: - Include this disclaimer in your group description: “This group is not endorsed by any Art2Life Programs, team members or Nicholas Wilton. - Do not use Art2Life, Nicholas Wilton, or any names of Art2life programs (CVP, Academy etc.) in the title of your group. - Do not use any logos or images from Art2Life or its programs. - Do not promote your subgroup within any Art2Life Facebook groups, on the Academy Forum or the CVP Portal.
DUE DILIGENCE. If you do decide to hire or create any contractual relationship with any of our CVP members, you do so at your own risk and outside of the framework of this program. We recommend you have clear written contracts and service agreements in place. The A2L CVP Program and/or Nicholas Wilton are not responsible for any loss of revenue, damages, breach of contract, or any other unfavorable circumstance as a result of such relationship.
WHAT ABOUT ME. If, for some reason, things are not going the way you had hoped in the program, either with the community or the program itself, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Support at email@example.com. We want you to have the best experience possible, but things do come up despite all our best efforts. Please don’t take things personally. Often the intent of others is different than what you might be feeling or experiencing. If you feel no one is commenting on your post, remember that this is a large group and things move fast...it’s a lot to keep up with. So repost. The fastest way to build connections and friendships with other community members is to be helpful. If you are, then you will be more than adequately helped in return. Try treating each other like good friends, sooner rather than later.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON’T FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES. We really believe that everyone wants the best for each other and this program. It is in the greater interest of the larger community that we are all creating, that these guidelines are put in place. It is critical that they are respected and followed.
