California Lawyers for the Arts Presents


You've probably heard a lot about NFTs, or "Non-Fungible Tokens," and how they're blowing up the art market. But what exactly is an NFT, and is this digital exchange a good fit for your creative practice? This workshop explains the basics of NFTs, how to sell your work as an NFT, and legal issues you may need to consider in the wild west of cryptocurrency.
