DAOWO - blockchain labs and debates for reinventing the arts


DAOWO - Decentralized Autonomous Organization With Others

This series brings together artists, musicians, technologists, engineers, and theorists to join forces in the interrogation and production of new blockchain technologies. Our focus will be to understand how blockchains might be used to enable a critical, sustainable and empowered culture, that transcends the emerging hazards and limitations of pure market speculation of cryptoeconomics.

Intended as a temporary laboratory for the creation of a living laboratory, the inaugural workshop in the series takes a pragmatic approach towards building technical and economic capacity in the arts.

As the DAOWO series unfolds, each lab will work across a spectrum of themes and domains of expertise, breaking down silos and assumptions about what blockchain technologies might mean. The aim is to birth a new set of experimental initiatives which can reinvent the future of the arts as we know it.

This six month programme has been developed with Ruth Catlow (Co-Founder and Artistic Director of Furtherfield) and Ben Vickers (Curator of Digital, Serpentine Galleries).
