Welcome to the CPTC! The CPTC ecosystem is the first community, rewards, and funding system for culture that taps into DeFi. (= Decentralized Finance, a term used for financial services on the blockchain). Our main goal is to improve funding conditions for artists and cultural organizations as well as granting accessibility of art to a broader public.
In 2020, the Long Night of Museums couldn’t take place and was changed to a format called “Time for Museums.” Missing was the connective element of thousands of people strolling through the night and visiting museums together. But it’s happening again – this year’s Long Night of Museums is taking place on Saturday, the 2nd of October! Not everything is as it used to be; obviously, there are precautions for health safety in place (3G-proof plus a limited numbers of visitors to avoid crowded museums).

Well before the second lockdown it was undeniable that the culture and tourism industry has been badly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions that come with it.
The famous “Long Night of Museums” will be a bit different this year. To avoid the crowds, it was expanded to a whole week when uncountable museums are offering special programs, discounts, extras for children, etc. The new name is “Museumszeit” (Time for Museums) and it takes place from October 3 – 10.
The museum Angerlehner in Thalheim/Wels presents four new exciting art shows, starting on September 13.
You just have to be flexible these days. Due to rising numbers of Corona infections in Vienna, the Secession had to cancel their usual opening party of their new art exhibitions on short notice. But they have come up with an alternative idea: the exhibitions of Emily Wardill and Edi Hila will be opened under strict regulations. Visitors have to wear a face mask, the number of people will be restricted, and everybody is asked to give their contact details for tracing voluntarily.
