About the programme

The evolution of technology is reflective of the changing needs and desires of human societies and civilisation. With the current paradigm shift from a limited notion of democracy to one with more agency and control, we are witnessing a transition to an alternative model that fosters ownership, transparency, democracy and engagement. With the development of Web3 and the emergence of smart contracts and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), how are we able to capture the value of digital assets and creative capital? What does it mean to artists, creators, and humanity at large, in the dawn of a new digital age?
