Online Meet-up 1 Scenario #21

— STRP & Foundation We Are

Part of this year’s festival programme is STRP Scenario #21: Decentralised Collaborative Future. During this Scenario, STRP and co-creator Foundation We Are examine the shift from Web2 to Web3, from open sharing to blockchain-based forms of (digital) ownership. In the run-up to STRP Festival 2023, two (free) online Meet-up's will be organised in which you are invited, accompanied by experts, to examine the potential of NFTs, DAOs, and other Web3 principles hands-on. A community will be set up via Discord, in order to start a collective exploration within this field. Read more about the two meetings below and join te community!

STRP Scenario #21 Meet-up 1: Experimenting with Web3 - Creators & Creative Professionals

Speakers: Penny Rafferty, Will Rowe, Ruben Pater.

What could Web3 mean for the individual maker and the creative practice? 'STRP Scenario #21 Meet-up 1' examines what Web3 means for the individual maker. Together with an expert we discuss the possibilities of Web3 and we will experiment with making an NFT.

Central questions: What is needed to make NFTs and what is the benefit? How can creatives or tech professionals use Web3 to strengthen their practice? How can being part of an online community benefit the individual creator?
