What is APex?
APex is a place for artists to meet, connect and share their work in any artistic format, including music, acting, painting, drawing, poetry, photography, spoken word, sculpture, dance, whatever! It is a place for inspiration, collaboration and community building. Bring something to share! Ideally new work but older stuff is cool also.
Only one rule – NO CRITICISM – APex is a safe place to share your art.
