Blockchains & Cultural Padlocks by Jesse McKee

About this Event

It feels like we have shackled ourselves to living our lives in the 20th century-on-life-support. It is time to renew our cultural practices and relations in order to prevent the unwanted future that was designed for us far too long ago. Over the course of three years, 221A (221a.ca), a Vancouver-based nonprofit, leads a research initiative entitled Blockchains & Cultural Padlocks that is nurturing new and experimental forms of cultural, social and ecological infrastructure that can be designed on the blockchain, with the intention to ‘recommon’ land, data and objects. The Arts, Design and the Humanities have a crucial role to play in deeply adapting our culture towards something that is more cognizant and reactive to the major historical narratives we are navigating today: climate collapse, context collapse, decolonization, economic justice and the equitable redistribution of resources
