These Terms of Service are a binding legal agreement between you and hostartist.network that govern your use of the hostartist.network website instrument.
hostartist.network (ha.n) connects creative social communities by establishing a direct relationship.
Hostartist.network offers a procedure that enables users (“hostartist”) to put forth one of three types of intention, Travel, Research or Dialogue, and meet potential availability through the offering of Places (living space without charging for rent), Research information, or Dialogue to resolve a query.
hostartists who put forth an intention are “active” and hostartists who offer availability are “available.”
Anyone interested in becoming a conduit for complex creative social dynamics can become a part of hostartist.network, and must be referred by an existing hostartist.
hostartist.network is a person-to-person exchange. This nucleic dynamic maximizes exchange and allows for a hostartist to fulfill a potential space through the definition of a hostartist.network dynamic.
A dynamic puts in motion a creative act / intention, to a certain time / place / encounter.
Dynamics can be understood as a single intention for personal isolated cases, but also used as complementary solution for institutions and events. As a hostartist you provide for your own experience and personal space to participate in the larger sense of generating community.
You must register an account to access and use hostartist.network and must keep your account information accurate. As the provider of the hostartist.network website instrument, hostartist.network does not own, control, offer or manage any “places.” hostartists will not charge rent, or demand any other means of exchange, be they material or behavioral, for their home available for an intention.
hostartist.network is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any hostartist.
ha.n excludes all manipulation of information towards commercial ends. Data is analyzed anonymously and for statistical understanding. ha.n transforms society towards dialogue amongst its parts, and accepts chance encounters as a value.
