Process.arts functionality requirements for an open practice platform

Below is a basic list of process.arts existing core functionality and additional functionality identified through site use for future development. This is the first draft, and functionality will be added and updated.

The site offers a rich media/social media experience to sharing arts practice, users are encouraged to openly share and use creative commons licensed content and support others in doing the same.
