Introducing the project Unlocking Web3 for the Arts and Culture (WAC Lab) – an innovation lab where arts professionals, institutions, technologists, and strategists come together to learn, discuss and experiment with Web3 apps with a specific focus on the Tezos blockchain. This year we joined the WAC, along with 7 other internationally recognized institutions.
This project also includes a hackathon where we invite you to build a code base for future Web3 use cases in arts and culture on the Tezos blockchain. You can participate in workshops on interacting with Web3, NFT ticketing, tokenomics for curated DAOs, integrating Web3 in virtual spaces, and much more.
What are the objectives of the project?
This project has two main goals. The first is to engage cultural institutions with Web3 and identify new use cases. The second goal is to provide open-source patterns for other museums, festivals, and other institutions to build their own future using Web3.
How and where can you get involved?
Anyone can get involved, no technical knowledge is required. You can sign up at https://gitcoin.co/hackathon/wac/onboard for more details about the hackathon.
