Comments are off for this post.
Much has been said about how NFTs have given artists and musicians alike novel avenues to sustain themselves financially, as well as connect with fans and patrons. But what about writers? In November 2021, legendary director and screenwriter Quentin Tarantino tried entering the NFT space by auctioning off images of handwritten pages from his original Pulp Fiction screenplay.

Akumal is a small village in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula region. Due to its geographical location, most government funding and development projects failed to reach Akumal, which is why most of the region and its population remained underserved for years. However, things began to change in 2018 when local bakery owner Jennifer Smith launched the Akumal Arts Festival. The event aimed to bring prosperity to the village by making it a safe and attractive place for tourists using art. Every year, artists arrive in Akumal and decorate the town’s walls with beautiful paintings. These efforts grabbed the attention of local authorities, […]
