The ArtHeat DataBase

Diceflame t.jpg

The ArtHeat DataBase is a long-term project, which aims to build an extensive database of contemporary African artists, organizations and concepts, focusing initially on South Africa. The idea is to expand it and keep it relevant by a process of user-based content. It takes the form of a wiki, a page that a reader can edit through the browser, using a specific easy to learn language. In this way the site becomes a resource for, and by, the community. Although pages can be edited anonymously, it's considered good manners to register as a user, so your work can be attributed, and to prevent vandalism. The ArtHeat DataBase suggests you use the Monobook skin.

To write a new The ArtHeat DataBase article, enter the page title in the box below.
