The Red & Yellow Creative School of Business is proud to announce the launch of Creating meaning in the Metaverse – a summit to celebrate the next frontier of the internet and the future of learning. This interactive event, which will be held virtually, as well as physically, is set to take place on Thursday 21st July 2022 at the Red & Yellow campus in Salt River, Cape Town.
The Metaverse is the most exciting topic currently in the digital landscape. The world is entering a new era of digital change which allows for collaboration in virtual spaces. Brands are starting to find themselves playing in a new digital world, which has seen the birth of campaigns such as the Volkswagen #GameOnVW and Honest Chocolate’s Non-Fungible Token (NFT).
Conference keynote speakers, who are experts on the rise of the Metaverse, will include Glen Gillis, Managing Director at Sea Monster Entertainment and leaders from Honoris United Education. Additional speakers will be announced closer to the time. Creativity in the Metaverse, Designing for the Metaverse and Education in the Metaverse are just some of the topics that will be explored.
Attendees will have access to a not-to-be-missed VR experience on campus and a workshop on how to make your own NFT, which will also be a part of the Designing for the Metaverse course – one of the first online short courses that Red & Yellow are creating to continue to provide relevant and much-needed skills for the future.
Since opening its doors in 1994, Red & Yellow has continued to be at the forefront of the educational sector in the creative industry. It prides itself on teaching the great creators, inventors, leaders and entrepreneurs for the 21st Century.
“We believe creative thinking is the most important skill of the future and this conference will inspire attendees to think out of the box and spark new ideas. We pride ourselves on being the most creative, forward-thinking business school on the continent, an image which will be entrenched through the launch of this event and future events of this nature to come”, says Elizabeth Lee Ming, Head of Marketing at Red & Yellow Creative School of Business.
The event coincides with the fifth anniversary of the Honoris Network, which Red & Yellow Creative School of Business is a member of. The launch of the Red & Yellow’s Designing for the Metaverse online short course is an exciting new offering that will be the first of its kind and demonstrates the progressive nature of the school.
“In order to prepare for the changing digital landscape, it is important to be curious and continue to learn, grow and explore the world around us. The launch of the Designing for the Metaverse online short course was therefore a natural progression for us. We want to equip learners with the skills to design for the future,” adds Lee Ming.
