Open Call for Artists | Rare Effects Vol. 3

Ready to free your mind and your creativity for Rare Effect? Open call is now open and you can be part of it. 

Since our last independent event in May 2021 the crypto art world has accelerated into the physical space at a phenomenal pace. In the past year we’ve seen many exhibitions showcasing the novel new concept of NFTs and while it’s great to see new collaborators in the space, we feel it’s time to introduce stronger curation and thought leadership into the direction the industry is taking, returning to art and culture

Curation is key to changing perceptions, and as the world continues through ever more unprecedented changes it’s important for us to reconnect with our values to prepare us for times ahead.

The theme for this year is Migration, which is happening all around us. It’s a part of many animals’ yearly cycle and necessary in our exponential acceleration in the technological world. As humans we have developed the ability to migrate but it’s not a privilege afforded to us all. Learn more about this year’s concept here.

This year we are being backed by the Portuguese national culture fund DGArtes and the project is being led by Arroz Estudios & APN.Be part of Rare Effect with your art. Send us your artwork and you could be part of Lisbon’s flagship crypto art festival. Visit and be part of the change.
