Become Web3 literate and start imagining new use cases for the arts and culture.
By merging in-depth discussions and education with real prototyping sessions, the WAC Fellowship will be offered to 8 cultural institutions to bring blockchain literacy within the art sector and prototype use-cases for Web3 technology in the artworld and the culture sector as a whole.
Understanding the WAC Fellowship program
As arts institutions navigate social, environmental, and economic flux, Web3 offers a new world of challenges and opportunities. While institutions struggle to find their way into Web3, a generation of crypto-native collectors have their sights on the legacy artworld, and new protocols challenge the meaning of the word “curation”. But in an ecosystem of $69 million .jpgs and promises to change the world, how can the arts and culture sector see through the hype and build a sustainable institution with the blockchain?
The WAC Fellowship program is offered to eight arts and culture institutions by We Are Museums and TZ Connect, with the support of the Tezos ecosystem, in collaboration with Blockchain Art Directory 2.0.
