Art Fractal Updates
The Art Fractal is dedicated towards empowering local artists in the Fallbrook Art Association, located in the San Diego region of California. The Fractal is hosted by Eric Westreich, an Eden Fractal community leader who is working to bring social consensus games to the mainstream. At least a dozen events have been hosted and there were approximately ten participants in the meetings that we observed. Most of the participants are older and unfamiliar with Web3 but noted that they really enjoyed the experience. You can learn more about the Art Fractal in an interview with the founder during this episode of Eden Town Hall.
