Celebrating The Hispanic Community in Jacksonville for Hispanic Heritage Month

In celebration of the beauty of the Hispanic community in
Jacksonville, Florida the XSTREAM TEAM (Aida and William)
and their works on the Metaverse and with WordPress would
like to invite the Hispanic community to share digital works,
digital drawings, animations, digital creations on a
Spatial Gallery on the Metaverse.

Spatial  https://spatial.io/ 
provides gallery space to express, share, display and provide content
graphically. It is a powerful tool of engagement and vision.

Inviting artists from 6 to 17 years old, providing them a
chance to show their talents, skills, abilities, knowledge,
imagination, creativity and innovation for the Jacksonville
community to see and admire. The metaverse is here and
we will be using Spatial to show the beauty
of the Hispanic community here in Jacksonville.

The site address will be:

Our goal is to showcase this at ArtWalk in Jacksonville
on Wednesday, October 5th 2022 to allow the Hispanic
community to share their passion for the beauty of
Hispanic culture and heritage.

This free activity is dedicated to showing the beauty
of the Hispanic culture using the Metaverse which can
inspire, encourage, and educate. The Metaverse and
Web 3 is influencing social and community collaborations
using Web3, NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens), Digital Arts and
other platforms. Having grown tremendously and making
substantial changes to life and living with the inclusion
of technology.

The Metaverse term has been around for a few years, but
only recently been talked about. It is created by the author
Neal Stephenson in his 1992 sci-fi novel “Snow Crash.”
In this book, the metaverse is an all-immersive digital
world that exists parallel to the real world.

Today using immersive technologies like Spatial, Altspace VR,
DecentralLand and others there are hundreds of developing
Metaverse sites that allow people to create their own avatars
to be engaged in almost anything imaginable.

To learn more listen to Aida and William at recent conferences
explaining the Metaverse and how it influences life and living
now and the future.
