Bringing artists and innovators together
This immersive event is the brainchild of Manchester based user experience consultant & Art enthusiast David Moore. After several years working in the design & creative industries, David found himself exploring how ‘blockchain technology’ could change the way we view art & design. David is the CEO and cofounder of an ethereum arts platform KnownOrigin, he began this new venture in 2016 with Blockchain specialist Andy Gray and James Morgan this led them to build a product allow artists to showcase & sell their digital art to new wave of art collector.
“The main focus of iDAF is to bring the tech & art communities together. We believe that having an event that allows innovators, entrepreneurs & creatives to experience digital art in immersive ways will ultimately lead to new ideas and collaborations.” • David Moore
The goal is to inspire the wider creative industry about the potential of blockchain tech and the emergence of scarce digital art. Bringing these communities together to share ideas and explore this new endeavour is a catalyst for innovation. The event is set to attract attendees and artists from across the globe. Artists can participate by submitting digital artwork via the iDAF website https://idafestival.com/submit. All attendees will be given the opportunity to bid and purchase rare digital art during the exhibition.
