Stellar artistic foundation is pleased to launch its first online artistic residency. With our residency programme we want to give to all artists, collectors and developers a possibility to share ideas, develop a project and mint it on stellar blockchain.

The residency will consist in creating a project in a collaborative and interactive virtual space where all can find a support during the different steps of the creation process, till the final output. It will be held online for a period of 8 weeks and will offer an opportunity for creating, learning and sharing skills.

SAF artistic residence is a space for the investigation and exploration of art.

All artists, collectors and developers that have been published and presented on our Medium are now officially part of the programme.

Art created by NUNA Team

About the Collectors:

Collectors are a fundamental piece in this world. They contribute to the production and diffusion of art by directly supporting artists, sponsoring institutions, and participating in the secondary market.

During the course of the program, collectors will be able to exchange ideas and reflect on their position in this ecosystem. The main task of a collector in the SAF will be to meet our artists, for this reason collectors will be assigned a work of art to analyse and criticise. With their experience and knowledge in art they will have to help artists and give them constructive opinions and ideas.

As for the artists, collectors will receive for their participation a weekly amount of NUNA, according to the number of articles and analysed artworks.

About the Developers:

Developers in accordance with the principles, purposes and values have a very important role in the ecosystem. Developers are a fundamental part, in fact all those developers in Stellar who help improve NUNA ecosystem and webpage will receive a huge amount of NUNA Token, according to their contribution.

If you have ideas about how to improve the ecosystem do not hesitate to share them with us!
