The Mastercard Artist Accelerator is an exclusive development program that will harness Web3 and blockchain technologies to prepare five emerging artists with the tools, skills and access to forge their own paths in the digital economy. A first-of-its-kind curriculum will teach both artists and fans how to build (and own) their brand — from minting NFTs on the blockchain to representing themselves in virtual worlds. By leveraging various Web3 platforms and services, the program is able to create a new community.
The artist engagement aspect of the program kicks off in spring of 2023. To stay up-to-date on program announcements, sneak peeks and more, click the “Sign up for updates” on this page.
