‘Exploring Blockchain in the Cultural Sector’ is an online conference hosted by the 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.

We invite researchers, professionals, students and artists to join us for this one-day online conference which includes speakers from across the world. Topics include:

  *   Exploring alternative economies and forms of governance
  *   Tokens and tokenisation in the context of the arts
  *   Examining the notion of authenticity and provenance
  *   The potential use cases of the technology in relation to the creative and art industries.
