Our friends at Arros Estúdios, who launched Lisbon’s first crypto art festival and helped a plethora of artistic projects in Portugal get funding with digital assets, are at it again with a 10-day shindig all things crypto, non-fungible tokens, art, music, and imagining the future. Get your ticket to ride here.
From the organizers:
“Staying true to the philosophy of presenting the possibilities of future technologies to local and international artists and creatives, Rare Effect Vol. 3 brings innovative exhibitions, will share the use of tokenization/NFTs and crypto wallets, as well as provoke visitors to interact with art installations and break through some of the existing barriers between what is physical and what is digital.
This year’s edition also seeks to raise awareness about the issues surrounding migration. ‘Migration is happening all around us. It is part of the annual cycle of many animals and is necessary for our acceleration in the technological world. As humans, we have developed the ability to migrate, but this is not always a privilege granted to all of us,’ maintain the organizers.
Rare Effect was envisioned, conceived and built from a community of artists, creators and enthusiasts from around the world. We are more than a festival and have maintained the same mission since the first edition, Rare Effect, Vol. 1, held in February 2021. We are the materialization of the digital, a sandbox for ideas and creation, an event to stimulate experimentation.”
