  • Understanding digital wallets through a step by step tutorial of how to set one up.
  • Getting examples of how artists, performers, writers, and cultural workers can apply blockchain technology to financially support their practice/organization.

  • Practicing how to mint an NFT on alternative, energy efficient blockchains.
  • Developing practical tools on how to incorporate NFTs into your studio practice and/or arts organization.
