Metaverse through a cultural lens

MET AMS is the first metaverse festival in Europe to look at the topic through a cultural lens. Metaverse events often attract tech enthusiasts, cryptocurrency fans, and web3 admirers, but MET AMS provides a broader audience with insights into what developments within the metaverse mean for topics like art, music , fashion and sustainability. During the festival, visitors learn about various aspects of the metaverse. From how NFTs impact culture, education, and healthcare to other hot topics like diversity, inclusion, and sustainability in this new Web3 era.

The festival will bring to life many of the innovative Web3 and metaverse technologies in a special way, allowing audiences to experience this new digital world for themselves. Edmund Howard MET AMS Co-Founder on the event: “There are a lot of blockchain, tech, and crypto events that are interesting to a limited number of people. The metaverse and everything that comes with it will impact everyone’s lives in the future. That is why we organized MET AMS and created an event that attracts the masses.”

immersive experience

Brands, artists and artists can convey their vision of the metaverse through immersive experiences that they design themselves. Think of digital art exhibits, performances, and virtual and augmented reality that expand visitors’ sights and sharpen their senses.
