Blockchain, DeFi, NFT’s and smart contracts are on everyone’s minds these days. Join us for a free workshop on Oika Tokenomics with Rich Blundell. This online workshop will provide an introduction to how Oika is planning on using emerging blockchain technologies, in collaboration with nature, to produce Oika art with impact. Come meet other Oika artists, report on what you’ve been working on, and learn how to participate in upcoming Oika projects. Note: this course is hosted by Supercluster and is required for participating in upcoming Oika NFT projects.
The workshop will take place online in February, with 3 sessions of 3 hours each during one week. The digital platform for the meeting will be facilitated by the Supercluster project directed by Fred Adam and Geert Vermeire. The technical and conceptual expertise related to NFT’s will be brought by Rich Blundell.
An international cohort of amazing artists are invited by Geert, Fred and Rich. They previously have to be in contact with the concepts of the Oika project and speak English. They also can be new artists we bring to the workshop because we know they already have the intention and vision needed.
The curator, Geert Vermeire, with more than 20 years of experience in the field of Walking Art and Art with Nature trajectory, will elaborate with you a potential exhibition of the artworks emerging from the workshop. We will investigate the meaning of exhibiting artworks and how it can be achieved in the context of the Tokenomics approach.
Fred Adam will bring to the workshop and to the artists the active experiment The Wooden Hut taking place at the wetland El Hondo , emerging from the years of collaboration with the Oika project. Presented as the result of the Oika training, Fred’s spanish project can bring to other Oika artists several resources. The most important in the context of the workshop is the Hut as an example to create Art with the wetland and with local environmental organizations. The physical space of the hut will be also the place for an exhibition of a printed version of the future NFT artworks emerging from the Oika workshop. The possibility of residences for every artists will be mentioned as a perspective in 2023.
