BED STUY, NY — A days-long part-virtual NFT event will kick off in Bed Stuy Wednesday, promising immersive experiences, a live rap performance, meditation sessions and learning opportunities for aspiring creatives.
The experience, hosted by SEED Brklyn located at 1217 Bedford Ave, will kick off at 5 p.m. Wednesday with a launch party and last through Saturday. Free installations, mixers and learning opportunities will be scattered throughout the week at the Bedford Avenue store.
Some events throughout NFT week will include a guided meditation and breathwork session from Bed-Stuy local Kenji Summers, a mindfulness instructor experimenting with technology like AI and virtual reality to create meditations, according to the session’s Eventbrite.
Rapper Latashá will perform at NFT week’s launch party Wednesday. The launch party will also feature interactive art exhibits from digital artist Elise Swopes.
“We’re proud to be the first to bring NFT BK Week to Bed-Stuy, and in doing so, bridging the gap for creatives, artists, and curious minds alike to learn more about the Web3 space with some of the top artists in the game,” founder Christophe Roberts told BKReader.
Designer Ceej Vega, who has worked on augmented and virtual reality with brands like Google, Meta and Netflix, will host an event at SEED Brklyn from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
SEED Brklyn opened as an experiential art space and cafe in October, 2022, BKReader reported. The space was planned as a community hub for local artists and creatives, Roberts told BKReader.
“Brooklyn has been home to some of the most influential artists in the world and throughout significant moments in history across pop culture, fashion, sports, and more,” Roberts told BKReader. “SEED is paying homage to the borough of Brooklyn by not only honoring those very same artists and their legacies but also embracing and highlighting many of the emerging, creative talent.”
