As an early technology trend adopter, AVID takes a keen interest in curating programs around new media. Using this first-mover advantage, AVID has increasingly begun to curate programs around upcoming trends in entrepreneurship, innovation, and technology. It has widened our audience reach and popularity among Gen Z and millennials. We curate specialized programs for younger audiences who want to stay abreast of the world of Metaverse, NFTs, DeFi, Web 3.0, and Cyberfuture. In this phygital age, artists and designers are exploring emerging computational technologies to articulate conceptual ideas or transform the cultural production of objects. Our avant-garde programming introduces these ideas to a larger audience. Our interactive and informative events bring them into conversation with creative entrepreneurs and artists, who are pushing the boundaries of art and unpacking the most cutting-edge and forward-looking ideas, readying us for the future.
