The Gray Area Festival is an exhibition / conference that showcases workshops and performances that survey culture through the lens of art and technology. This year’s event will have a high focus on the impact of blockchain on creative practice. It will feature a wide array of speakers and artists that are international thinkers, and practitioners for discussion that uncover art and the impact of technology on culture. Gray Area is a nonprofit arts organization that began the conversation around how the integration of technology and art practice can create a smarter, more creative, forward-looking, and inclusive approach to innovation and social responsibility in San Francisco. This festival is their flagship event which advances this dialogue around some of the most consequential topics in technology today, using artistic discourse to better understand their implications.
