Gregory Eddi Jones’ How To Work with NFTs workshop is for people interested in the intersections of photography and NFTs. Workshop participants will learn how to get involved in the NFT world as artists, curators, collectors, and theorists.
The artist and critic will talk about the histories, communities, and cultures of NFT photography, discuss the economics and theories of photography on the blockchain, and offer guidance on how to mint and sell work as NFTs.
During this two-day intensive workshop participants will bring their own ideas for how they hope to participate in the NFT world, as artists, collectors, or curators, and will collaborate with fellow students and the instructor to help put plans into motion.
Participants do not need to have any prior knowledge about the subject matter and the workshop participants will become part of SPBH’s online NFT community.
