Art: the real impact of blockchain, NFTs and Web3

Date(s) - January 24, 2023
10:30 am - 11:45 am


The utility of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies has been applied in a wide variety of verticals, from logistics and supply chain to identity and credential management, healthcare records, and insurance.

However, one area that has garnered a lot of attention is the art world. While the ‘Crypto Winter’ has had an impact on certain digital art investments, non-fungible tokens (NFT) are far from dead, and are continuing to change the nature of the relationship between the artist and their work.

No less an institution than Morgan Stanley said in 2022, “NFTs are disrupting the traditional art market, creating new communities of collectors and giving artists more access to their fans and buyers.”

In an online sessions, we speak to two artists about their personal experiences, as well as their work in the broader industry to understand what is really happening and how the industry is taking advantage.

Joyce Moloney is a visual storyteller and poet, and Solomon Adesiyan is a recording artists and producer.

We will also hear from the working groups on plans and ambitions for 2023.
