How to become a dragon?
It is easy to start the process to become a member of the EL-DRAC community. Please follow the guidelines and start now.

1. Who can be a member of EL-DRAC?
2. What is the main target of EL-DRAC?
3. What are the main rules of EL-DRAC?
4. What do I have to accept in order to start a membership?
5. What about fees and contributions?
6. What do I have to do to enter the network now?

1. Who can be a member of EL-DRAC?
Every artist born in Europe (the continent including Russia and the Baltic areas as well as Eastern Europe) and every artist from outside, now living  and working in Europe can be a member of the network. This rule focuses on two things: first, it is a project with an open minded “think globally – act locally”  attitude and second, it defines that European art is special and different from all other forms of art. Whatever global players say about art and “world art”, we think European art in particular can offer something special to the world…

2. What is the main target of EL-DRAC?
El-DRAC – in a realistic way – is a social structure. It reflects the real life of many European contemporary artists and brings power and people together. The main aim for “the outside world” is to help find a way to the real art market for all members. The inner target is to build a powerful social acting community hoping for peace and freedom in a stormy world.

3. What are the main rules of EL-DRAC?
There is no “constitution” inside El-DRAC. The founder Juan Petry initiated the network with only a few rules. The main rule is: Everybody is free to act in his own way. All  he gives to the network is free, all he gets is free. Being a member, doesn´t  imply  that he/she has to do something. So every member acts like a fish in a swarm, who is free and independent, and does whatever he/she wants. The idea is to form a group of similar minded artists and give them more power. In fact, these artists will reach their goals in a strategic optimization process. EL-DRAC is very quick. Many tasks combine some artists in groups, depending on the target of a real project. Not every task is shown or commented on here.

4. What do I have to accept in order to start a membership?
Nothing. EL-DRAC is a virtual network. There is no administration, no contracts, no money transfer and no terms and conditions ( apart from these rules here 🙂 …).

5. What about fees and contributions?
There are no contributions or fees to pay to be part of the EL-DRAC network. Pat Harrison offered to help in translation and content handling and do this for free. We enjoy if you like to help him.

6. What do I have to do to enter the network now?
First check out the list of full members on the network. You will have to start communicating with two artists. You need these two artists as guarantors. Contact them and ask for admission. If they aggree, they will write an e-mail to the admin of this page and request to enter you in a candidate – status. Within publishing this status online in the list above, all full members could reject your application. if nobody reject it in 3 month, you are full member. We think, you will enjoy the feeling of being a member of us. It is up to you to realize a real benefit for yourself.

7. Leaving the network…
In the first 6 years we discussed this point a lot of times. In general we do not want to kick out somebody, but it is right, that members without any group activities are not really powerfull parts of the project. We will find a friendly solution for this lost shapes.
