Distant Community's purpose is to nurture a vibrant, vulnerable digital community that inspires easy-going exchange.
Composed of a diverse set of makers, artists, and creatives—industry, years of experience, POV, and career ambitions considered—this informal and honest Slack community connects new potential collaborators, friends to lean on, and people to learn from (and with).
The current admins are:
We want this to be a fun, pleasant, and harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
We encourage you to talk about our ****Distant community outside these virtual walls—spreading the wealth and growing this community would make us so happy! With that being said, it's of utmost importance to us that this space remains safe, intentional, and authentic. In order to do so, we will screen potential members as they ask to join. Following that screening process and shortly after a member is accepted into Distant, we ask that they post in #introductions with the following information: name, pronouns, location, industry, favorite pasta shape.
