‘The Future of… Arts is an online live event series created by Dinis Guarda that discusses the future of society and technology. This first event puts together some of the biggest creators and innovators in Art(s) and discusses how Digital 360, NFTs, Metaverse, IP, AI are shifting the arts industry. 

Renowned speakers Amrita Sen, artist, designer, and business Woman; Amrita Sethi, NFT Artist; Timmy Mowafi, entrepreneur, creative Director and co-Founder of MO4 Network; and Andrea Bonaceto, contemporary artist and NFT pioneer will come together to shed light on the Future of Arts.

The live-streaming event will take place on December 8 (1 pm to 3 pm GMT) on Dinis Guarda YouTube Channel, powered by citiesabc.com and openbusinesscouncil.org.

The global art market grew from $275.58 billion in 2021 to $448.92 billion in 2022, a growth rate of 62.9%, according to The Business Research. Digitalisation and new technologies like NFTs, AI and Metaverse will fuel that growth exponentially as it democratises the creation and access to art and reaches a wider audience.

But what the future looks like for artists, collectors and businesses? That’s the question that the speakers from the upcoming event ‘The Future of… Arts: Digital 360, NFTs, Metaverse, IP, AI’, hosted by Dinis Guarda, will try to answer.

‘The Future of… Arts: Digital 360, NFTs, Metaverse, IP, AI’ event is about how creativity can keep flowing with the tools of the 21st Century. If Leonardo da Vinci used oil painting technique to achieve depth and intensity of colouring and transparency in the effects of light and shade, the artists of our times are using digital tools, producing and selling their arts with NFTs and increasingly working with Metaverse immersive experiences and artificial intelligence.

The future of arts will increasingly incorporate many more elements of creator new dimensions, IP definition, interaction with technologies, engagement with institutions, virtual spaces, metaverse immersive worlds, and integrated gamification communities. And special interaction between human to human and human to machines.

As Dinis Guarda, the host of the event and the author of many books on the topic of digital transformation has predicted:

“AI, 4IR Digital tools, NFTs and metaverse will have a super impact in the way we create art and have our human imagination sharing our emotions and high expressions. With increasingly more powerful digital tools, artificial intelligence there are new roads to artists and the art industry at large to scale but the concepts of IP, distribution and the entire system of the art world will change faster than in any time of history.”
