The Art Party Volunteers

To Help Support Our Non-profits To Do Good


The Art Party is an Artist Collective for Digital Art + Music NFTs on MP4s. We offer live streaming for local musicians and artists, as well as services to setup MP4s as NFTs. The Art Party is a non-profit, 100% volunteer-run, and started as a Facebook Group in July 2010. The Art Party is a collective made up of music artists, DJs, visual artists, volunteers, and supporters. We incorporated as a BC non-profit society in late 2019 as The Art Party Community Services Society. The Art Party is refocusing in 2022 with a roadmap as an Artist Collective for Digital Art + Music NFTs on MP4s.


USER – NFT Artist & Music Management

USER is a sound creator from Vancouver, Canada who has been releasing albums independently since the 90s. He is now also producing NFT art and NFT music, along with live streams.

With lockdowns in the 2020s due to a COVID pandemic and being a night owl, USER continues to pen more tunes than ever, but the vaults are still full of unfinished works. The clock is always ticking and USER in lockdown fever came as a blessing as more unreleased music was released upon the world.

“The Rise of the Technocrats” will be the next album for USER, compiled of previously unreleased and new material. As with the entire global community, we have seen the further alienation of humanity into a touchless non-individualistic culture dropped into a hive mind mentality. Expect a timeless collection of songs that hint at the glimpse of the unfolding Technocratic world through the musical mind and ears of USER this Fall 2022.
