In our inaugural two seasons Refraction staged over 10 events worldwide—inviting thousands to experience what our DAO is building— collected 100+ works, and welcomed more than 1000 community members. Of this number, upwards of 500 were practicing artists and musicians
Refraction’s first project is NFT Culture Proof, a collaboration with Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern. They use this historical moment to have us literally write, and re-write, a web3-native framework for storytelling and discourse. It’s an ideal launching point of collaboration for our DAO and Refraction Festival.
We are a decentralized global creative community of artists, curators, technicians, and fans focused on moving the culture forward through collectively reimagining live experiences in the physical world and in the open metaverse. Our cornerstone is Refraction Festival, a month-long fully on-chain IRL<->URL project featuring musical performances and art installations in over ten cities across five continents.
