FAQs / Rules

Be safe out there! 

Above all else, your safety is key. Putting out art isn't particularly dangerous or anything, but it's always nice to have a buddy along. I recommend putting art out in the daytime only, and in a place that you know has a lot of foot traffic (which just ensures that it will be picked up).

It's NOT a scavenger hunt! 

Try not to hide your art somewhere it can't be found or can only be found through clues. The purpose of this isn't to create a game out of it, but anonymously leave out art for others. However, you can leave a business card or your poleproject's hashtag (i.e. #seapoleproject) and share that the art was found if they reach out.

While I cannot speak for the other poleproject chapters, the seapoleproject is not a scavenger hunt. Meaning, do not hide the art and post clues. The idea of this project is to create equal art accessibility, and certainly not waste. This is why choosing an area with a lot of foot traffic is best. It is sure to be seen, picked up, and loved.

If you're interested in participating in a scavenger hunt type game, I recommend Game of Shrooms, a yearly art scavenger hunt revolving around mushroom art :)

There is no schedule! 

There are certain projects around, like Free Art Friday, where people put art out on a certain day. Not the poleproject! This is a no-obligation-when-and-if-you-can-and-want type of project. That's part of what drew me to it, in fact. I saw it as a way to help with my social anxiety while doing something I loved, sharing art with others. So don't stress, and be kind to yourself :)

No minimum quota 

Never ever ever feel like you have to meet some sort of quota when putting your art out, or like there needs to be any hard set of rules. This is meant to be a fun way to share with members of the community and is not meant to be strict.
