Yesterweb is a website and community (Discord, Mastodon, Hubs, Gemini, Minecraft instances) that is “focused on nurturing creativity and diversity in web pages and digital social infrastructure”, with a number of member contributed manifestos that occasionally reference IndieWeb as well, but mainly focuses on freedom of artistic expression, and the possibilities to create how and whatever you like by having your own homepage.
