NOBORDER.z FZE (CEO: RIO TAKESHI KUBO) has developed the Web 3.0 type metaverse “XANA.” They are hosting a “virtual exhibition in the metaverse together with Koto City, Tokyo, as a follow-up to the koto Heartful Art Exhibition held in the previous year. The aim is to realize a harmonious society where people with and without disabilities can live actively in the community through art and technology.
In 2021, XANA and Koto City held the koto Heartful Art Exhibition for the Tokyo 2020 Games, a sports and cultural festival, in the Metaverse. The exhibition’s legacy will remain as a “virtual exhibition” in the Metaverse. By allowing visitors to view the works of people with disabilities from any location at any time, the exhibition will allow people with disabilities to feel closer to them and deepen their understanding of the world. The exhibition will also promote the social participation of people and children with and without disabilities. It will be a place where people with and without disabilities can live together in the community.
We will provide access to approximately 150 paintings in total during the 1st to 3rd Terms, not only from all over Japan but from all over the world, by taking advantage of the unique strengths of the Metaverse.
