Blockchain & Art Knowledge

DAOWO (Distributed Autonomous Organisations With Others) Summit UK facilitates cross-sector engagement with leading researchers and key artworld actors to discuss the current state of play and opportunities available for working with blockchain technologies in the arts. Whilst bitcoin continues to be the overarching manifestation of blockchain technology in the public eye, artists and designers have been using the technology to explore new representations of social and cultural economies, and to redesign the art world as we see it today.
Discussions, talks and conversations during the DAOWO Summit will focus on potential impacts, technical affordances and opportunities for developing new blockchain technologies for fairer, more dynamic and connected cultural ecologies and economies. The event seeks to forge a transnational network of arts and blockchain cooperation.

Contributors include Ruth Catlow (Co-founder of Furtherfield & DECAL Decentralised Arts Lab), Peter Holsgrove (Founder of A*NA), Ben Vickers (CTO Serpentine Galleries, Co-founder of unMonastery) and Mark Waugh (Business Development Director, DACS).

In cooperation with DACS, Furtherfield and Serpentine Galleries.
