Showcasing Steem in New York City

This public exhibition will 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 work. The exhibition will be open to all visitors for several weeks and serve as a free and public space for New Yorkers and others to learn about the Steem blockchain, the world of crypto, and immediately begin converging their creative work with the 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

The Crypto Renaissance is the first exhibition in New York City dedicated to creative and entrepreneurial work made on and through blockchain technology. In this show, Steem will be taking center stage. The Crypto Renaissance will showcase the Steem-powered projects executed over the course of the Sndbox incubator 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. iPads will be placed strategically throughout the exhibit for visitors to browse, post, upvote, and comment in real-time.

Exhibition Mockup for @utopian-io

This week, the @sndbox and @creativecrypto graphic design team is hard at work. We’ll be sharing our mockups of the exhibition boards for Utopian, Fundition and more! All of the graphics we create as a result of this exhibition (posters, infographics, icons, Steem explainer pamphlets) will be entirely open source and available for all Steemians to use. We are thrilled to have the support of these amazing Steem-powered applications and are working directly with their teams to ensure quality text descriptions, links and graphics. Our team is also in touch with @esteemapp and @dtube to create compelling material for the show.

Looking ahead, we're also in the process of designing material for @dlive, @steepshot, and a number of key projects like @busy and steempay. If you are a member of these teams (or others) please message us via or here in the comments. Let us know what material you’d like on display!

I think I need to put my face on that wall too!

Wow thank you @opheliafu! Looking forward to seeing both you and your amazing work in a few weeks!

hope this will be soon in other countries also

I see a new age coming for artists and entrepreneurs. I recently went down the rabbit hole of crypto - so I by no means understand what all is out there. All these ICOs popping up everywhere sparked a thought (granted I believe Andreas has said this at some point) - why not have an individual token?

A new age for artists is right! There are more resources for creatives now than there have ever been before.
