May 7th Intro to NFTs for Artists Agenda

NOTE: this is the rough schedule for the day. Additional resources, speakers, volunteer profiles, and other information will be finalized and shared before the event

There is no charge for attendance thanks to our volunteers and sponsors. We ask that artists register an application. Spaces are limited so that we can have a strong ratio of volunteers to artists for the afternoon workshops.

The Frequently Asked Questions & Resources page has lots of additional content, which we’ll add to both during and after the event for you to refer to.

We’ve set up a Discord server for easily sharing links and chat during the event. You can sign up here:


This is a one day event that will take place in person at ECOMSquare on West 8th at Burrard.

Please arrive prepared with your laptop and smartphone.

Slides and other resources will be shared.
