ART AND MUSIC | Rare Effect Vol2: an NFT Festival | FREE-3€
May 12 @ 17:00 - May 22 @ 22:00
WTF are they?
Ok, they’re non-fungible tokens…
But wtf is fungible, let alone non-fungible…?
And, most importantly — when it comes to NFTs — what’s in it for me?
If you recently found yourself asking similar questions, on top of looking for a good time, then forward-looking local culture hub Arroz Estúdios has this to say to you:
“Rare Effect vol2 is a 10-day cultural program, featuring a digital crypto art NFT exhibition and live music performances. It will happen physically at Arroz Estudios in Lisbon and virtually in the metaverse developing the portal between physical and digital arts.
The event will combine 2D & 3D digital displays, AR & VR exhibits, as well as performance art and live-streamed music acts.
Throughout the exhibition, visitors will be able to interact with the art on display, installations, and performances through the use of decentralized finance (cryptocurrencies) and a digital wallet to play around with crypto-economics concepts.
The festival seeks to raise awareness of the current existential threat facing grassroots cultural associations & DIY music venues. The aim is to directly support the venue and contributing artists by facilitating the sale of digital art through tokenized digital certificates of provenance, commonly known as NFTs. As such, artist submissions have been peer-reviewed by the community and any proceeds from the exhibitions will go towards supporting further cultural initiatives.”
Hopefully, that clears it up a little.
The festival is happening through May 22, entry to Arroz Esútdios is free with a yearly 3€ membership, and you can learn more (and see the full list of artists and musicians on 2D and 3D display) here.
