Art at Steemfest - "Selected" works

Wow, wow, wow. Combined with the several submissions from art initiatives and the individual submission we got 133 works in, after removing duplicates :)

Good news.... all works will be printed and ecologically framed. We've got a big space (thank you LX Factory!) and I guess with some crafty work from the curators (on Tuesday) we are going to find a place for all the works submitted, if they are of decent quality to be shown. To be continued, or come check it out @ LX Factory (free for public) from 1 till 5 november.

Directions to Art at SteemFest gallery - open daily from 9 - 19 (approx) from 1 till 5 november:
LX factory Lisboa - Rua Rodrigues de Faria 103 - In the main street you see the tall building on the right, the Art at SteemFest exposition is in this building. - all the way at the end - take the last entrance, just after the Sushi Factory restaurant on your right. Take the stairs to the first floor - again, turn right. We'll put up some signing too :)


Week Updates

So I had a very nice office this past week (see below), but much to do. The week was full of gazillions of tabs, emails, indesign, illustrator, photoshop, slowing down computer, blasting through 30 GB cards of internet. Prepping raspberry pi's for several occasions. They come in handy as tiny standalone computers if you want to have them serve a single task (like playing a movie in a loop, or showing a slideshow) without having to give up your mainframe laptop. It's also great that you can just install anything linux on em and most of it is supported. They come with downsides too, mainly processor power, so you have to be creative about that.

Last week's office; prepping for SteemFest

Since the SteemFest got a nice kicker in ticketsales the past 10 days (in contrast to last year, why you guys book sooooo late :D) I had to adjust orders for shuttle service and several catering partners.

Then I had a nice DIY job: prepping light armatures for the Art at Steemfest expo space. Which is quit bad lit at the moment so I made these DIY armatures from electric plastic piping, and when we got to Lisbon I got these light bulb fittings from a certain Swedish Furniture DIY store. My vision is we can strap those light armatures to the pillars in the venue and have some decent lighting high up, shining down on the walls, hopefully evening out any shades.

The same day we arrived in Lisbon I did a crazy tour picking up old tv's across Lisbon... Via the Portuguese Ebay called OLX I found them, brought the raspberry pi to test them and then when the car was full of antique tv's (3 only) I brought them to the Art at SteemFest space.

Next day was all about picking up booze for the friday 'A Night of Steem'-variety-evening. This will be held in the former 'Santiago Alquimista' bar / theatre cafe, which is beautifully situated and constructed along the medieval castle wall, facing the inside of the venue. Since the bar is being remodelled they offered to pre-open for SteemFest and i really fell in love with the place. The only "downside" was that I had to bring in the booze myself. So I got a selection of wines, spirits for cocktails, beer, water and sodas. It's gonna be a blast for sure.

Now it is really a matter of gazillions of small (computer related) things like mailing, calling and then prepping badges with the firepower crew and packing goodiebags (but that will be last minute work on wednesday). We'll be doing the Art at SteemFest setup on 31st of October @ LX Factory with a group of Steemians and then preparing for the SteemFest Blockchain Hackathon which is taking place on 1 November.

A Note For SteemFest Attendees

: You will get last minute info as well as daily emails (until 6 november, don't worry :D) starting this tuesday 31st, on the email address registered to your ticket's order.

Unfortunate cancellations: Unfortunately @CharlieShrem and @theprophet0 had to cancel due to personal reasons, and we miss @gloglo due to visa issues. But with more than 40 speakers, enough to hear. Don't worry, you will get that Shremfie one day!

Livestreams scheduled: For those of you missing out, just like last year, @shourai will be streaming SteemFest from both rooms. Room 1 will have a multicam, directed by the master himself, and Room 2 will have a single overview cam. Both Rooms will be hooked into the master audio so you can get a grasp of SteemFest that way as well.

Set reminders for the livestreams here:

Ok, that's it for now! Have a nice end of the weekend. Bom fin de semana!
All liquid rewards from this post go to @steemfest


It;s so great to be here feeling all the buzz starting to take form. You have really activated this event @roelandp, and we are all going to be blessed by the love you've put into it.

Sad to hear we will be missing two of our planned Steemians, especially @theprophet0 who gifted me my plane ticket this year through one of his contests. Was hoping to meet this gem in person.

Super excited about the art space. It's going to make a statement all it's own. And also the live stream I'm sure will be greatly appreciated by those who cannot be here to feel the magic in person.

Amazing job @roelandp. I'm amazed by all you have accomplished already!!! BRAVO!!!

Looks amazing can't wait to see the turnout :) Ill see you guys there

More importantly.....

also really very good imformation!!

Hey there!! We still have one day before the hackathon. Any chance we can hangout and chill?


Thanks for all your hard work @roelandp! Can't wait to meet everyone!



So excited to be here in Lisbon as it is a very beautiful city with so much history and character!

Though I am MUCH more stoked to be here for STEEMFEST2!!!

I am already having a creamy and delicious good time and posting about it! Also if anyone needs a hotel room I have one extra room reserved that I don't need in the OFFICIAL hotel for SteemFest. Just message me if you need it and I am also willing to trade it to you for $teem. I made a whole post about that if anyone wants to check my page for it.

Excited to meet and get to know you all and for all you not in attendance this year I plan to share the glory with you all via daily posts as WE ARE A COMMUNITY making Steemit GREAT!

Full Steem Ahead!

I'll be there! Leaving my place in just 9 hours for all this traveling! I got like a 7+ hour drive, then 11 hr flight, then 4 hour layover, then a 2.5 hr flight to Lisbon.

Worth it to take part in the awesome experience. Thank you so much for all your hard work @roelandp :D

why not with the train? have a good trip, WOAHHHH, see you on wednesday!

Hi @roelandp, I decided to make a contribution in my little way to SteemFest 2 through my Act of Creativity, but it got no publicity. I would appreciate you checking this out, and letting me know what you feel about it. Thank you as you do.

See you all there!!

Great event ! Best of luck for all the participants !! Thanks for sharing the updates here @roelandp ! Best of luck !!


Nice update :)! Enjoy steemfest

hi budy will u plz upvote my posts in my blog... if u do i will do the same :)

WOOO Bring it ON!!! QUESTION: can we turn up late to the hackathon ? I havn't registered or anything because I will be arriving in to Lisbon at about 10 (I also have NO appropriate coding skills!) but I thought it might be fun to check out the action if Im allowed....

Wish I could be there. Looks like a blast!

Great news @roelandp we will be rolling in tonight. See everyone soon :-)

Everything is set on my end. I only need to take sick lave off my day job and Lisbon here I come! Looking forward to seeing you all!

Siempre hay contratiempos cuando se hacen organizaciones, las mayorías de clases veces se logra salir victoriosos , espero tengan un excelente evento. Muestren los latentos cada uno de los participantes. Éxito todo lo que se hace con esfuerzo y trabajo recibe las recompensas.

There are always setbacks when you make organizations, the majority of classes sometimes get to be victorious, I hope you have an excellent event. Show the latentos each one of the participants. Success everything that is done with effort and work receives the rewards

I'm soooo jealous I'm been here in the platform for just two month and I love it already want to go to the steem fest! Hope next year my finances are going better. I made up a post about Lisbon haha wanted to go so much. Enjoy and give us nice photos! And of course thanks for sharing and keep us informed

Maybe next year! (will it be in Portugal again?)

I'll be there.

Excited for the event!

I'm sad because i will be missing out,but thank God for the live streams...

So excited to that's it's actually happening!! I still can't believe I have actually made it all the way to Lisbon and more importantly to get to see all of us awesome people.

And again, if you need help in any menial thing at all in then next few days. I'm more than willing to lend a hand.

It's unfortunate that there had to be cancelations of speakers and especially @theprophet0, he has been excited about this since more than 4 months ago..

I guess I can speak in behalf of everyone that bought tickets the last minute. We want to make sure can actually be there before we inform you that we are coming. How can we buy the tickets and not have the itinerary ready!! Hahaha

I've arrived Lisbon for about a day now and has mostly settled. (before buying a ticket for @vaelriey, see what I mean?) So just really waiting for the event to get started!!

So stocked for this!!

My God I'm so exciteeeeed!!!! Give more to the people!!!!! Arriving Halloween night - the 31st around 11pm- and I'm all ready to rock and ...steem! :D See you all there!!!

Just finished my bookings and bought my Regular ticket today x)

Looking forward to seeing you all in Lisbon this week!

So you are going to attend @fredrikaa?
Damn I should also have taken a vacation to attend, the event does look promising indeed. Sadly the new semester has begun recently 😅

Thx @roelandp a nice update again. You must be working very hard to arrange all this. Do you have a team or mostly all by yourself...

preps mostly by me although in regards to the event - its been a part time job for past 5 months and fulltime past 2 months. But now the @firepower crew is flying in for help during the event! And then ofcourse Art At SteemFest can't be done by me alone so many hands will help Thursday to setup. But yeah it's a crazy ride.

So still some days of hard work to go. have fun, try to enjoy the Steemfest and relax after Sunday..

exactly, although aftermath also takes some time... bills bills bills.

Yeah i forgot that part.. but the pressure is a little bit lower. If you need help for next year let me know. I would love to spend time on it coming year👍
