Jointly organised by INVADE, Kult, and Chain Debrief, MetaJam Asia 2022 is Singapore’s first digital art and experiential festival. Spanning across three months, from 6 May 2022, the event will bring the world of NFTs and the metaverse closer to all enthusiasts and those curious about the development of Web 3.0.
Multidisciplinary exhibits will be presented throughout the event space, with a focus on educating, enabling exploration and offering fulfilling experiences to each individual partaking in MetaJam Asia 2022. Presented jointly with Klaytn, Kakao’s global public blockchain project, along with Mintable, the event’s strategic technology partner, audiences will experience the best of what the blockchain has to offer in this new age of technology. The event is also supported by Salad Ventures, XT.com, Gorilla Mobile, and a dozen other industry stakeholders.
Kent Teo, CEO & Founder of INVADE, said:
“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.”
Besides the exhibition, audiences will get to enjoy an immersive experience showcasing over 10,000 NFTs, a three-day summit in July 2022, and a two-day GameFi Asia. GameFi Asia, coorganized together with Salad Ventures, will showcase a full day of blockchain gaming panel sessions and a hackathon.
Felix Sim, Co-Founder, Salad Ventures, said:
“MetaJam’s concept is uniquely placing cutting edge technologies of Web 3 into the hands of its attendees. We’re excited to let attendees experience the best of GameFi in the flesh.”
Over 20 NFT partners have been confirmed to be showcased at the event, with more to be 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.
The event will also feature several visual and video artists, musicians and workshops, enabling a new generation of art and crypto enthusiasts to understand the nuances behind this evolution.
Raja V, Founder of Kult Studio & Gallery, added:
“We are excited to bring NFTs to life via the curation and execution of completely interactive learning experiences at MetaJam. Visitors will learn first-hand that art and technology seamlessly complement each other.”
In conjunction with the festival, MetaJam Asia 2022 will also curate a Singapore NFT Week, slated to happen in June 2022. Participants will get to explore NFTs launched by Singapore-based companies and artists while engaging in conversations about the emergence and boom of this new sector.
While the three-month-long exhibition will focus on the opportunities Web 3.0 can bring to all individuals and organisations, with the rapid adoption of blockchain technology, Singapore NFT Week will aim to normalise dialogues and the pursuit of Web 3.0 in 2022.
Jacky Yap, Founder of Chain Debrief, said:
“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.”
Held at the newly renovated Tekka Place Annex Building Experience Centre, exhibits will be spotlighted in a 6,000 sqft event space with seven experiential zones: Funda-Meta, Meta of Facts, Jam Session, Metasphere, The Rad Jam, Meta of Time: Pitstop and Token Jam. As the world opens up to the evolution of Web 3.0, MetaJam’s first stop in Singapore aims to further unlock this emerging world to those in the region.
The ticketed entry to this event will give access to all the exhibits, including:
