Metaverse Cultural Series


The Metaverse Cultural Series is a set of events featuring performances and lectures that highlight unique aspects of metaverse culture, taking place in multiple virtual world spaces.  The series showcases innovative artists, thinkers, performers, and academics whose work is on the forefront of exploring what it means to work, play, and live in the emerging metaverse.

One of the most compelling and alluring aspects of the metaverse is its infinite potential and global reach. While many places in our physical world are convulsed with revolutions, uprisings, border conflicts, and wars, the metaverse is borderless, stateless, and infinite.  In the physical world, resources are limited, hoarded, and fought over, but in the virtual world, pixels are unlimited and the only finite resources are time and our own creativity and imaginations.  Still in its nascent form, the metaverse is only just emerging as a site to develop a truly global community, and we wonder how the nexus of physical and virtual may transform our worlds on a broader scale.

As we launch the second year of the Metaverse Cultural Series 2014, we ask what impact may the metaverse be having on our world now, and how might it impact the global community in the future?
