'Disability' is not 'deficit'.Today, July 14th, is Disability Awareness Day.
People who do not have disabilities are fortunate in some ways; for example, they don't have to worry about whether they will be able to exit a burning building, wake up with excruciating pain, or have to choose between purchasing expensive medications that can keep them alive and paying their rent. However, please do not pity those of us who do, for having a disability does not automatically make someone less "lucky" than others.
It has nothing to do with luck.
I realize from firsthand experience that having a disability is extraordinarily challenging. Living with pain, as one example, must be beyond imagination.

Telling our stories through art featuresIf someone told you that you had to find the 5-7 pieces of art on dA that best represent you, could you do it?
What do your favorite works of art say about you? Have you ever thought about it?
I'm featuring 7 deviations that blow me away, that I turn to for my own inspiration. Each one tells a story to which I can relate. A piece of my own story is echoed in each image.
What's your story through art? Create a journal with 5-7 of your favorite deviations that best represent you, and link me!
I love rain. I love the way it washes away sorrow and leaves your soul open for the sunlight.
This image reminds me of me because of the feeling of pain, of being hit with a constant barrage of garbage in my life that I don't need or deserve. You can avoid a lot of it, but sometimes it comes up and strikes you on the chin, reminding you to pay your dues.
Beautiful dress, beautiful hair.

Ways to get involved in the Photomanip communityWelcome!
People keep asking me, "How can I get involved in the photomanipulation community?" Here is a guide for you to know what's going on and how you can participate. Please bookmark or favorite it so you can find it later.
Faves, Comments, and Features
You don't need us to get involved. You can comment on others' work, post features for other members, provide critiques and helpful comments, and be supportive in other ways. You can leverage your groups by posting features there for your members and helping set a positive example for the community. Let's identify underappreciated art in our community and get new artists a wider audience. Get involved; you don't have to be a CV or a community leader to make a difference!
"Collaboratables" are works in progress (WIPs) done by one artist that they are allowing to be completed by a second artist. If you are looking for a project to collaborate
Deviants worth discovering!Hi all,
I just wanted to share some photomanipulations that could use some more support and love from our community. I hope you enjoy viewing the feature as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

We have a lot of exciting things to share with you; let's get started!
Are you new to photomanipulation?
Whether you've been on dA for 1 month or 10 years, if you are new to photomanipulation, we want to hear from you. What kinds of resources do you need as you develop your skills? Do you want a place to network (make connections), share tutorials together, etc.? Do you want mentors? How can the more established members of the photomanipulation community work with you?

projecteducate is a group and all updates from individuals during their weeks listed below will be posted over there! So be sure to join or watch for the full updates! If you want to partake in Community Week by writing an article then just note the group with your ideas!
How it Works
projecteducate started with purely CV run weeks. Those were weeks focusing on a specific art form brought to you by your lovely Community Volunteers. As well as these epic seven days of awesome, we've now introduced two more themes which run on a bi-monthly basis. Those are Community Weeks, which include articles from members of the dA community - and Artist Toolbox Weeks which include a mixture of articles focusing purely on the 'tools' of the trade. If you're interested in either please note projecteducate!
