Blockchain 101 for Visual Artists

Future of Rights Management and the Promise of Web 3.0

November 28, 2018 (5:30 – 8:00 pm. EST)

The demand for content has never been greater – in Canada and beyond – yet it has never been more challenging for artists to receive payment when their work is used. Blockchain technology holds the potential to change things for the better. A new ecosystem, powered by exponential technologies like blockchain and artificial intelligence, is emerging that will evolve the way visual artists engage with content. We believe this is the future of rights management.

This seminar, jointly organized by CARFAC Ontario, Access Copyright and its innovation lab, Prescient, will address blockchain’s potential for visual artists. Learn what blockchain is, how it works, and what it means for you.

Please join us. RSVP to secure your spot as space is limited.
