How is blockchain being used in the creative industries, and can it change your life?
The first event in AFTRS’ new professional development seminar series – Short, Sharp and Immediately Useful – will give you all the need-to-know info on blockchain, and how it may help you. This event is co-presented with Screen Australia and the Australia Council for the Arts.
In the first part of this seminar Ellie Rennie and Jason Potts from RMIT will discuss their provocation paper Blockchain and the Creative Industries with Peter Herbert, which brings together current thinking around the use of blockchain technology, concluding that the creative industries would benefit greatly from this new economic infrastructure – possibly more than any other segment of the economy.
In the second part you will hear real-world case studies from companies that are using blockchain, including Irina Albite and Maria Tanjala from Film Chain, Mo Jalloh from Zimrii, Nathan Graves from Soundvault and Judy Grady from Copyright Agency.
Part three, moderated by Sandy George, will be part of a discussion with a panel of industry stakeholders including Emma Madison from Screenrights, Musician and Researcher Tracey Redhead and documentary maker Torsten Hoffman as to where it may go in Australia.
Location: AFTRS, Building 130, The Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park NSW 2021
