Greetings, 
Welcome to the “Meta Freedom” page of  Black Meta Fest Juneteenth 157 Afro-Futurism Experiences that will be held the weekend of June 17th, 18th, 19th participating with in-person and digital metaverse sites.

The youth portion of the Juneteenth celebration  will be Saturday, June 18th held at WJCT Studios in Jacksonville, Florida for the in-person sessions
from 10am to 12pm where there will be workshops, minting, digital arts
and safety information.

Families will receive information about how children can become digital
artists and designers making NFTs that can be minted on the Blockchain.

This page is for Church of Christ ministries to get their youth engaged
and  involved.  We are asking for digital artists from ages 10yrs to 17yrs
to submit their works that represent the theme of  “Freedom.”

The Spatial Gallery is ready to receive digital works submitted and
share the talents, skills and abilities of youth &  teens from the
Church of Christ.

These experiences respectively will be held Friday, Saturday,
Sunday, June 17th, 18th, 19th 2022  with Black Meta Fest
Juneteenth 157, and hopes to embrace how technology is
useful in building  the youth and teens into digital leaders.
The  metaverse is here in various forms and Web 3.0 is
growing past Web 2.0. Where will our youth and teens be
in the future if they are not prepared.

Afro-Futurism Conference

We are proud to be the first and only Metaverse events
to have two events on this historic weekend and with a
focus on youth, teens and young adults. Ministries are
encouraged to participate and get their youth and teens
involved as digital artists.

The important part of these events is that youth, teens
and young adults are at times disconnected from past
historical events associated with slavery and racism,
sometimes taught a false narrative about how slaves
were treated, the atrocities of slavery, and how it still
affects Black and Brown people of African, Hispanic,
Haitian, Jamaican, Puerto Rican, African, Central and South
American heritage.

This event is to show not the ugliness nor violence, but how
our cultures collectively have overcome and are excelling
in areas of STEM, STEAM, STREAM and Digital Learning.
That the Metaverse, Altspace VR, Infiniverse and other spaces
can help to educate and empower and are influential in Ministry.
