Let's Talk About The Art Economy: DAOs & Finance 3.0 meet the Art World

  • Upvest Kleine Präsidentenstraße Berlin, Berlin, 10178 Germany (map)

Panel Talk

Location: Upvest at Kleine Präsidentenstraße 1, Berlin

Thursday August 22. Time: 17:30–19:30

With the emergence of DAOs (Decentralised Autonomous Organizations) and the recent advancements in crypto-economics, we may be at the verge of a rapid shift in the way that cultural work is organised and financed. While blockchain offers a new artistic medium and new potentials for the regeneration of autonomous community-based artistic practices, it also raises entirely new sets of challenges. What impacts will blockchain technologies have for artists, activists, and cultural organizers seeking to create an art world less reliant on institutions and states, outside of the confines of the legacy systems?

At this meetup, we invite members of the local and visiting artistic communities, and blockchain researchers, with guests speakers from both fields, to take part in an open discussion on the relationships between art, community, and blockchain technologies. So be ready for debating, networking, and discussing projects you are involved in!

Participating in the panel talk is Jeff Emmet: 

Jeff Emmet is a Token Engineering researcher, with a focus on cryptoeconomic primitives, such as Token Curated Registries and Bonding Curves. Working with Giveth, The Commons Stack and the Aragon DAC teams, he is helping to rethink the structure of charity in a decentralized world, and to forward the practice of Token Engineering for robust blockchain ecosystems.

The spots availability is limited to 30 participants.
