Addressing Challenges: Crypto Art PH Adaptive Strategies

What were the primary challenges your organization faced during the first half of 2023, and how did you address them?

Our primary challenge is with regards to paperworks and documentation. As a volunteer organization, we are still trying to streamline the process around these activities so that we can properly present ourselves to potential partners and collaborators.

Improvements and Metrics: Comparing 2023 with Previous Years

Is there a specific metric that has significantly improved in the first half of 2023 compared to the previous year?

Our metric is primarily about spreading the word about this opportunity that exists in web3. We are happy that finally, local institutions are collaborating with us and there are now conversations with them surrounding digital art and ownership.

One notable achievement this year was our participation in the Olongapo Zambales Art Exhibition, held in partnership with the LGU of Olongapo and DAHUYO, led by sculptor Megs Empinado, as part of Olongapo’s Cityhood Anniversary celebration.

During this event, we engaged with local artists, participated in art talks, and hosted panel discussions, sharing insights on major trends and providing guidance on navigating the web3 landscape.
