What is Mania Systems? Who is this instance for?

Mania Systems is a retro-futurist themed space for independent, underground, and non-traditional artists & creatives to share their work, meet each other, and collaborate.

This site is run by queer neuroatypical mixed-race & brown folks, for folks of the same. Anyone is welcome, but we will always prioritise the safety and comfort of our communities.

What do you mean, nontraditional?

For example:

  • Any artists or creatives working outside academia or "formal institutions"
  • Underground & indie zines and zinemakers
  • Writers working outside academia
  • Street artists
  • Anyone fusing art and technology (e.g. code-as-art, digital music, etc)
  • Found artists
  • Anyone who's had to ask if their art counts as art

As long as you keep this space safe & respectful, you're welcome here.

Take a look at the website for more information. There's also a number of other apps and platforms run here.

Keeping safe & respectful

Respect people.

Harassment will not be tolerated, oppressive behavior will not be tolerated, and while failure to recognize the boundaries of others may be met at first with a gentle attempt to educate you, repeated failure will not be tolerated.

Use our platform, don't frack it.

No brands, no marketing, no data-miners. You're here to use it for its social function, not to exploit it for some other purpose.

Leave your shit at the door.

There's nothing interesting about homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism, ableism or any of the other unexamined default settings some people grow up with. Being a nazi isn't non-traditional, it's shitty and aggressively boring - take it somewhere else. You can feel free to disagree somewhere else where none of us have to hear you. Enforced strictly.
