Groups Directory - Community Efforts

Thu Sep 27, 2012, 10:07 AM


Hello Everyone :wave:

:wow: have you ever searched for groups that are helpful, positive and supportive? Gosh :blushes:...... I hope you said yes :la: deviantART has so many sensational groups :nod: and sometimes it's really difficult to pick out which ones to join or do the activities that you are interested in doing. Below you will find groups dedicated to Community Efforts and then a condensed list to check out :reading:

:iconaheartforyou: Community Efforts :iconaheartforyou: Community Efforts :iconaheartforyou:


Project-Pay-Forward Pay It Forward
From the About Us: "deviantART thrives on the aspects of giving help to
those in need. It is what makes this community unlike any other on the
web. We are not just artists, we are advocates, activists, promoters and
trailblazers. Above all, we are friends. We all know of deviants who need help from
time to time. Sometimes it is in a monetary fashion- Like donations for
causes, paying for a bill here and there or something else.

Other times it is a simple hug, a friendly hello, a newbie who needs a guide
or the promotion of an event. And who doesn't know of someone offering
or looking for commissions? Need advice on your work? A critique
perhaps? That is what Project-Pay-Forward aims to do. Help those in need, however and
whenever possible. We all have our talents, and we all have things we
would like help with. This project hopes to bring together the two and
get things done. But this is not a one person job. It takes a community
effort. So join us, and open your heart."

dAWishingWell Wishes can come true!
From the About Us: "dAWishingWell
is a group specifically created to give back to the dA community by
granting dA-related wishes such as premium subs, super-group status,
giving items off of the wishlist, points donations, features, DD
request, and more!" Do you have a wish? It could come true!"

deviantHEART Promoting Positivity
Created to promote positivity on deviantART. Our group depends
greatly on the involvement of our members to spread positivity and
awareness. #deviantHEART only accepts submissions of artwork that are clearly positive in some way.

TheConceptBox Think Outside The Box
From the profile page: "This is a group dedicated to those that love
Thinking Outside the Box! We accept all forms of media as long as it has
a clear concept. We provide Blog Features, Contests, Themes, Chat Events, Feedback for our members & more!

Arts-and-Health Support & Cause
From the group info: "To encourage the use of art as a creative outlet for telling the story
of what it is like to live with a health condition (chronic or acute).
As such, we will use art to raise awareness of critical health concerns,
address and make progress toward eliminating the stigma associated with
many medical conditions (such as mental illness), and facilitate the
use of art in storytelling [people “speak” through their art, and the
images (or words, in the case of literature) teach]."

Great idea! :clap:
On behalf of the group I am about to mention, can #inspirational-images be listed under Photography, too? :)
The link to TheConceptBox doesn't work, by the way.

Great list of groups! However, I think the traditional column is undeservedly short :giggle: there are #Traditional-Artists, #Traditional-Media, #painters and #OilPainters at least! :painter:

I have to admit that the name itself does remind one more of an artisan crafts related group - possibly not something they thought of when they stated the group ;)

#dA-Dictionary (under informational resources), captures the latest official news from all the staff and volunteers and has a gallery filled with tutorials on how to use the site.

#Photo-Challenge-52 took over Project 52 when CommunityRelations decided to end it and now runs monthly photo projects alongside the weekly project.

Wow - great list! I knew of some of these already, but certainly not all. Thanks for taking the time to compile it.

I'm going to plug my group a bit, as trying to be a helpful and supportive one - :iconimproveyourphotos:.

We are small, but we offer photography tutorials and suggestions from members on how to improve photos submitted to the group gallery. :D
