Creative Passport

[Creative Passport]

The Creative Passport is a personalised digital ID for Music Makers, allowing them to update, manage and control all information about themselves and their works from one place.

Artists' Information online is often in different places and incorrect: biographies, photos, skills, roles, inspirations, teams and contacts, identifiers, digital accounts, concerts, credits, collaborators. Thanks to the Creative Passport Music Makers can push updated profile information into other integrated music services, at the touch of a button. The goal is to become a unique login solution, decreasing admin work on ID verification for services accepting The Creative Passport Credentials. As The Creative Passport will also offer a way for its user to exchange secure messages and to p2p verify each others, we intend to Create a social graph with other passport holders using ActivityPub activitystream actions.

The social graph is a key element for the Creative Passport, as it allows for a grass roots validation of holders as active with the music space without having to rely on the larger players of the music industry. It needs to be a useful social space for the participants, to allow for new services to be built on connections and abilities to share messages with a graph without compromising the trust inherent in having the graph represented in a digital space, so each Passport Holder holds their own graph.
