About the Event
This is a two-part series on Wednesday 23rd and 30th March 2022
It's hard to miss the talk about the Metaverse and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). So, what is the Metaverse and NFTs and what does it mean for events, animation, games design, technology and art?
Part 1 - 23rd March
Join Ridley Plummer (Metaverse and NFT Project Manager | Tennis Australia) online or at the JMC Melbourne Campus as he discusses why and how Tennis Australia decided to dive into the Metaverse and NFTs world for one of their largest events – The Australian Open.
Ridley will breakdown what the Metaverse and NFTs are with real world examples, what it takes to pull off this type of project, the learnings and advice for those who are thinking about embarking on Metaverse/NFT projects.
Part 2 - 30th March
This is part two of “Designing Better Futures – The Metaverse – Exploring NFTs” and is a workshop and Q&A style event. Don’t worry if you missed the first part on the 23rd March, you can still submit a question and participate in the event either in person on online.
In the field provided, please submit your question or idea that you would like Ridley to answer/workshop on Wednesday 30th March, that relates to the Metaverse and NFTs.
