Steem-Powered Exhibition in NYC
Today we’re excited to announce “The Crypto Renaissance,” the first Steem-powered public exhibition in New York! This show will professionally showcase the tools and resources built for creative professionals on the Steem blockchain and specifically how @sndbox members have integrated them into their practice and daily lives. The exhibition will be open to the public for several weeks and serve as a free and public space for New Yorkers and all visitors to learn about the Steem blockchain, the world of crypto, and immediately begin converging their creative work with Steemit ecosystem.
The Crypto Renaissance Details
- Schedule: July 20 (Opening @ 7:00PM) - August 15, 2018
- Location: 100 Bogart Street | Brooklyn, 1st Floor Gallery
The Crypto Renaissance Mission | Description
The Crypto Renaissance is the first exhibition in New York City that showcases creative and entrepreneurial work made on and through blockchain technology. The world of cryptocurrency now offers emerging tools that empower innovative work and not just fund it or provide for an interesting premise. Over the past several months, the blockchain incubator @sndbox has helped establish many of these new initiatives around the world. The Crypto Renaissance will showcase both the work produced over those months as well as the blockchain-powered tools (Steem DApps) that helped make them real.
The exhibition will be held in the gallery of 100 Bogart, a building complex in Brooklyn that houses dozens of influential blockchain startups. 100 Bogart has been a core part of dubbing this region of Bushwick as “Cryptolandia” alongside neighboring companies like Consensys (of Ethereum). This gallery space is the perfect location for a New York-based Steem launch.
The exhibition will feature large scale boards that document community projects that have taken place within the Sndbox incubator as well as an introduction to the Steem ecosystem, and showcases of the many apps active across the blockchain. iPad's will be placed strategically throughout the exhibit for visitors to browse, post, upvote and comment in real-time. (More on the @exhibition account, below.)
How Can I Support this Exhibition?
@sndbox has invested $5,000 USD for the rental of this space. Our team will be fundraising over the next month seeking to raise 10,000 SBD to pay for the expenses of the gallery rent, insurance, exhibit materials, Steem account creation and workshop programming. Any SBD donations to @sndbox will go directly to the benefit of the exhibition.
In order to fundraise for the Exhibition, we have a "DONOR WALL" where Steemians can donate SBD in exchange for a customized portrait of your profile picture and your Steem Username. This IRL WALL will become a collage of faces and contributors and will be installed in the very front of the gallery.
Donate SBD become part of the Donor Wall!
|Amount||Send SBD to the @sndbox account w / memo: "EXHIBITION"|
|200 SBD||Custom portrait / username illustration = 12" x 12" (square)|
|75 SBD||Custom portrait / username illustration = 6" x 6" (square)|
|10 SBD||Illustrated Steem username = 3" x 6" (rectangle)|
Your profile image will be created digitally by the professional illustration team behind the @creativecrypto magazine. Each contributor will also receive a high-resolution image in exchange for their support.
An Interactive Steem Exhibit for the Public (Newbie Friendly)
For the purposes of capturing the ongoing progress, workshops and upcoming activities concerning the exhibit, we’ve created the @exhibition account that will be used as an experimental forum for this event (then passed on to another event). You can read about the rotating account’s purpose here and we highly encourage any Steemian with ambitions of doing Steem-powered events to check it out. After the @sndbox exhibition, the account will be available for others to utilize and apply to use for their own projects. You can find a concise explanation and mission on the @exhibition account.
Creating New Accounts for Visitors
@exhibition will be used to create new accounts for visitors (we will have a dedicated iPad station providing the option to create an account). This @exhibition account will also be used as a kind of "Guest Book" for visitors to publish thoughts and ideas directly into the Steem blockchain.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting more on the specifics of the exhibition and you can support and contribute this major effort to establish Steem as one of the most robust technologies in one of the most crypto-focused global cities. These posts will include -
Exhibition Curation and Layout. The Crypto Renaissance will have a range of content and interactable booths that showcase the emerging tools of the Steem blockchain.
Donor and Sponsorship Program. We’ll have rewards and dedicated representations for those who either donate directly to the project or delegate temporarily to the @exhibition account. A part of the exhibition will be dedicated to those that contribute and we’ll have a full program of custom swag reward supporters.
Public Workshop and Event Schedule. The exhibition will be stacked with public events meant to showcase the creative energies of the @sndbox and Steemit community for the general public.
Developing the @exhbition Account. We’ll be experimenting with ways we and potentially others will use the new account to host a series of public and promotional activities for Steem.
Outreach and Post-Production. The exhibition won’t just be limited to the duration it’s up on the walls. We’ll also be developing exclusive online, video, and physical content in the following months.
