Inscribing Amsterdam Open Call
We've partnered with Inscribing Amsterdam to curate and exhibit artworks at the event in Amsterdam next month. Assisting with curation from Gamma’s side will be our curator-in-residence, Hugo Pouchard.
CALL FOR ARTISTS: Inscribing Amsterdam Blooms
Amsterdam, a city rich in history, symbolism and cultural diversity, is closely associated with the stock exchange, a liberal lifestyle and the famous tulip mania. In this unique art initiative, traditional art symbols meet the world of Bitcoin and the Ordinal Protocol. We are inviting artists from all over the world to join this fascinating connection, to take up the theme of the "flower" and to contribute their interpretation.
INSCRIBING AMSTERDAM COLLECTION
Selected admissions will be used to create a Genesis collection "Inscribing Amsterdam Blooms" and there will be similar collections for all future Inscribing events to challenge and encourage art and artists in a meaningful way. The works in this collection are intended for VIP tickets and sponsors. This is a unique opportunity for both emerging and established artists to contribute an artwork to the first major Inscribing event and develop a new collector base. Your art will also be exhibited at Inscribing Amsterdam, where it will be seen by a wide audience and collectors.
DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES: September 30, 2023.
ANNOUNCEMENT OF SELECTED WORKS: October 07, 2023
INSCRIBING AMSTERDAM EVENT: October 14, 2023
Just two days remain for open call applications. Learn more and apply below:

Finding a muse
As Head of Community at Gamma, I am so fortunate to work with and onboard creators to Bitcoin. A few questions I often get include: What should I do? What do people want to buy? I am not sure what to create.
My response, after many conversations with creators, as to what gets them into a “flow” state, is create what you love, produce work you enjoy producing, and do what feels authentic to you.
But beyond that, how does one find that vision, a muse that sparks an artistic journey? We are so lucky that the world around us is bubbling with sources of inspiration everywhere we look: our environment, inner-self, the world around us, history, fiction and more can drive creativity. And there is something for everyone.
Thanks for tuning in, we’ll see you next week!
