Global Art for Global Peace

The Green Cart Magazine began as a multimedia publishing project, with a goal to provide a vehicle for artists, writers, computer geeks and geekettes alike, allowing them to showcase their talents, as well as providing skills and job training for youth and persons wishing to learn how to design and market web sites on the internet.

Since the premiere issue of The Green Cart Magazine went online in December of 1994, our pages have provided entertainment to literally millions of viewers worldwide. We are pleased to place our second issue online with a fresh supply of art, poetry and stories contributed to our little green cart of art, from you, our viewers.

Artisans around the world are networking via the internet, and with success, thanks to the World Wide Web’s multimedia capabilities, and communication features like e-mail, IRC (Internet Relay Channels), and the Internet Telephone. All these features and many more make the internet a very happening place to be!

I feel honored to witness the development of the internet, and I am happy see a platform for the arts being built by the artists themselves. I watch in awe as modern technology meets old-fashioned art mediums, together forming a foundation from where artisans and musicians alike can reach and interact with an international audience.

All around the world, millions of people are arming themselves with a modem and taking the journey into the unknown, the unorganized.. the World Wide Web! A place where the real world’s versatility of culture and lifestyle is weaving a unique community that comes to life on the net.. accessed at the touch of a fingertip!

Consequently, this flocking to the net is removing borders, borders that denote differences, and differences that tend to create barriers here in the real world. However, these “differences” tend to disappear thanks to the universal expanse of cyberspace. With that in mind, one’s opinions can be freely expressed behind the internet’s unique “cloaking of anonymity.” And as much as the internet may quite possibly be a “virtual” compromise for reality, it has become an important contributor to the era of communication.

All of which creates a catalyst of its own consequences. Private or public property? Freedom of speech? Copyright? The internet and censorship? Censorship and the internet?

Censorship on the internet.. touchy topic! Freedom of expression – on an internationally published platform. Here is humanities chance to prove that we can make a worldwide decision, one that affects civilization on a global scale. Wow! Scary?

Personally, I think it can be done. I have faith in the human race.

The Green Cart Magazine continues to provide an open platform for the arts. And that which is art.. is a far span from that which is pornography.. thus I retain an open submission policy for The Green Cart Magazine. However, as I have always emphasized.. and I continue to emphasize.. the word ART. I welcome your comments and suggestions.

The Green Cart invites you to explore the Wonderful Wide World of digital publishing! The environmentally friendly move toward informing and entertaining online. Our magazine is packed full of interesting and interactive pages for our viewers to enjoy, including a variety of links to other publications and artistic web sites located around the world.
