EXPLORING BLOCKCHAIN IN THE CULTURAL SECTOR ONLINE CONFERENCE – 16TH OCTOBER 2020
We are pleased to inform you that registration is now open for the ‘Exploring Blockchain in the Cultural Sector’ conference.
‘Exploring Blockchain in the Cultural Sector’ is an online conference hosted by the Institute for Cultural Practices, University of Manchester, which will examine the possibilities of using this technology across the cultural and creative sectors. Through the linking of this technology to these sectors, the aim of this conference is to provide an accessible way into the blockchain field for those who have little or no understanding of the technology. In doing so, this conference will encourage ideation and critical examination of the technology and highlight the potentials, barriers and critiques of blockchain.

Exploring alternative economies and forms of governance
