No to Censorship

Post by ah^gao » Mon 28 Jun 2010, 10:07 am

Abstract from http://sites.google.com/site/artsengagesg/

What is censorship of the arts? It is the control of content, prevention of production and prohibition of presentation, of artistic expressions.

In censorship, ideas and material considered objectionable or problematic by the censor, are suppressed, and often justified as an attempt to protect minors and adults from content that would apparently harm them. But is that really the case?

The value of the arts is not only in their entertainment, but also in the ways in which the arts provides us with food for thought, broadens our perspectives and gives us new insight to the world around us.

Isn't it your right to decide what would or would not be objectionable to you?

The position of the arts community paper on Censorship and Regulation is for regulation - an independent, unexceptional and impartial process of providing information about content that allows art to be produced as intended, and for you to choose what you would experience and enjoy.


If we want full access to GLBT material and matters, let's do our part by raising awareness to our community members and by asking them to sign the petition here: http://sites.google.com/site/artsengagesg/signpaper
