Celebrating Diversity Hub

Thu Feb 13, 2014, 1:21 AM
Welcome to the Celebrating Diversity Hub :) This is a collection of all the articles that have been posted under this theme.

We live in a world full of diversity, every day in real life and every day on dA. And it happens so often that a work of art is "slashed" simply because it is different than others. Because someone sees it and doesn't understand it and doesn't take the time to think about it.
People who react like that to art, follow the same thought process, that so many many people follow when it comes to Racism, Sexism, Homophobia: "This is different to me, therefore it must be wrong." You may wonder if that comparison may not be too harsh, but when we open they way for people to condemn what is different in the small things, like in this case Art, we open the path to that thought process taking shape in many more places.
Instead of hating on differences, we need to embrace them! Because differences make life so great! We don't want to live in a dull world where everyone thinks and does the same and everything is dull and boring and repetitive.


Let's enjoy and celebrate the diversity of this world and this website in particular :heart:

Tips on finding new, different, unusual unknown artworks




"If man is to survive, he will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life's exciting variety, not something to fear."
- Gene Roddenberry

I look at this and think about all the stuff that has called my gallery home. I've had so much diversity in just the 8 years I've been here. and I like seeing that in other people's galleries too.

When I found the quote, I was really happy. Especially cos it made me realize how awesome the concept of Star Trek actually was/is and how far ahead of its time! :la:

It is such a great quote and it says so much about how awesome Star Trek actually was and how it actually teaches us lessons about life.
Sort of, no pun intended, very much ahead of its time. :XD:

Indeed it is/was - such a shame it stopped as a series.

Oh very much so - I can't wait for the day when everyone wakes up and realises that under the skin we are all the same.

Yeah, even tho I have to say I never really got into it, I was watching the next generation though (if that is the one with Picard… I can never remember :slow: )

True :nod:

Next Gen was IMO better because it will look less dated over time and yes it's the one with Picard :heart:
