If your livelihood is made online, you are locked into an extractive relationship with the technologies on which you depend.
The global creative industry and its output is valuable — social media platforms extract significant incomes from the collaboration, publication and display of creative work. This relationship means that finding and cultivating an online-first livelihood is increasingly precarious.
Underscore is an emergent creative community of open platforms, co-operative tools and public spaces where art and culture can survive – and thrive – online.
- Community owned and led, non-commercial and profit free.
- Fully independent of Big Tech infrastructure.
