The Austin Bitcoin Club ("KeepAustinPleb" "Pleb Lab"), founded by Kyle Murphy and Car Gonzalez in 2021, are redefining the idea of what a Bitcoin Club "monthly meetup" can do for its own city. What started with a couple Plebs looking to hangout out with Bitcoiners once a month has turned into a selfless driven purpose to assist its city in building out a thriving Bitcoin community. Austin Bitcoin Club hosted out of the Capital Factory and its mission to be the center of gravity for entrepreneurs in Texas, has turned into the largest social gathering of Bitcoiners in a matter of months in Austin. #KeepAustinPleb events churned out bitcoin centric events focused in and around Bitcoiners in Austin. Pleb Lab which came out of a need to further Bitcoin, Lightning developers and projects working in Austin. Created a workspace among other brilliant Bitcoin developers at Pleb Lab. Its first Pleb Lab cohort of startup projects were provided startup advisory, mentoring, business development, networking, marketing and strategy. They were given a couple years of growth in the span of a few months. A rapid Bitcoin accelerator for Bitcoin wizards. Pleb Lab has grown to be the first of its kind.

It is a total submersion in the art and brings it alive, which is unique in the world. Atelier des Lumières is leading in a new inclusive art wave, in which accessibility for all is key. Never in the history of art has this rich body of work been shown in such a contemporary way. 

Artist Jimmy Nelson

After having made a wonderful debut in 2018 with the very first exhibition dedicated to Gustav Klimt, a majestic exhibition addressing the oeuvre of Vincent van Gogh paved the way for the work of the great masters, from Monet to Chagall, Renoir, Picasso and Matisse.

The role of an art centre is to compartmentalize, and that is why digital technology is so important in twenty-first-century exhibitions. Used for creative purposes, this technology has become a formidable vector for dissemination, and is capable of creating links between eras, adding dynamism to artistic practices, amplifying emotions, and reaching the largest possible audience.

From spectacle to guardianship

This autumn, Paris will have a unique premiere of an entirely new initiative by Atelier des Lumières and the Dutch Jimmy Nelson Foundation.  The Jimmy Nelson Foundation is founded with the mission to safeguard the world's last Indigenous cultures and share their valuable wisdom with the world. 

“We need to protect Indigenous cultures to protect the planet from ecocide; the red thread connecting all Indigenous communities is their respect for the land. This 5% of the population protects 80% of the Earth’s remaining biodiversity. We need these cultures to help save the environment”, says artist Jimmy Nelson. This is one of the main ideas behind the show.  The Last Sentinels promotes environmental and cultural guardianship by immersing visitors into the world of Indigenous cultures who are protecting the natural planet.
