Don’t Delete Art is part of a campaign dedicated to free speech and human rights that calls on social media platforms to follow a set of principles that would allow art to circulate freely online.

The Don’t Delete Art Gallery showcases artwork that social media platforms have removed or restricted. Submissions to the curatorial team can be submitted via this form.

Don’t Delete Art offers tools and resources for artists to work around restrictive community guidelines and assist them when appealing wrongful takedowns, including guidance on how to appeal, avoiding removal, and extensive resource links.

For updates on the campaign, news about art on social media, interviews with censored artists, and more sign up for the DDA newsletter. With interviews, artist highlights, articles, and breaking news, the DDA Newsletter aims to demystify social media’s vague guidelines, create change, and help foster community between affected artists.


On June 15, 2023, Don’t Delete Art (DDA) members took to the streets of New York City for the DDA Day of Action.

Their mission was to invite key cultural institutions and their patrons to sign the DDA Manifesto, which demands greater representation of artistic perspectives in social media content moderation policies and their enforcement.

The day was bookended by visits to Meta New York City offices, where DDA members distributed informational fliers and advocates for artists who are censored online.

Other institutions visited included Whitney Museum,  Parsons School of Design, Magnum Foundation, Newmuseum, and icp — all in the aims of raising awareness and seeking Manifesto support.

DDA compiled a box of materials to deliver to Meta containing over 2,100 Manifesto signatures, documentation of Art censored on social media platforms, DDA Newsletters about digital arts censorship, and the articles about the Manifesto Campaign.

Meta declined to accept the box.

But the campaign continues!
