Space content activation firm INVADE, art and design studio Kult, as well as online crypto publication Chain Debrief have jointly announced that they will be co-organising MetaJam Asia 2022.
Held from 6 May 2022 for three months, the event is intended to educate and enable exploration into NFTs and the metaverse, through fulfilling experiences for anyone participating in the event.
MetaJam Asia 2022 will be Singapore’s first digital art and experiential festival, with multidisciplinary exhibits presented throughout the event space.
“The key objective of MetaJam is to build accessibility and explore the various possibilities of Web 3 adoption in a physical space. The potential of the Web 3 space is exciting, and we hope to inspire the greater Web 2 communities,” said Kent Teo, founder and CEO of Invade.
Participants will also be able to enjoy an immersive experience showcasing over 10,000 NFTs, a three-day summit in July, as well as a two-day GameFi Asia event that will include blockchain gaming panel sessions and a hackathon.
Over 20 NFT partners have been confirmed to be showcased at the event, with more to be progressively announced. These projects include Karafuru x Hypebeast x Atmos, Blvck Paris, Enlightened Rats by Chain Debrief, The Other Side, Gorilla ĠLVT, Heartbreak Bear, Broskees, Tay Kexin, and more.
Singapore-based companies and artists will also get a chance to display their NFTs, during the Singapore NFT Week, which is slated to take place in June.
“Singapore has become a bustling hub in the crypto space, with many communities sprouting up. As crypto adoption accelerates, events like these are essential in introducing new players to the Web 3 space, while at the same time acting as launchpads for current communities to gather and share knowledge,” said Jacky Yap, founder of Chain Debrief.
MetaJam Asia 2022 is also launching its own NFTs
MetaJam Asia 2022 will be held at the newly-renovated Tekka Place Annex Building Experience Centre, with seven different experiential zones, each with a different focus.
Participants unfamiliar with the metaverse space can learn more about it at FUNDAMETAs or META of Facts, while those who wish to hear more from experts or support content creators can gain insights or buy merchandise from The RAD Jam and Meta of Time: Pitstop.
As part of the event, MetaJam Asia 2022 is also launching its own NFTs, which will be available for minting on 28 April 2022 at 0.08ETH.
Known as the MetaPass, it will give holders exclusive privileges during the festival, including priority access, meet and greet sessions, discounts, and access to other MetaJam events around the region.
Tickets to MetaJam Asia 2022 are priced at S$18 for a day pass and S$45 for a season pass, which you can purchase here. Participants may visit the exhibition on Fridays to Sundays, from 12pm to 10pm.
