Welcome to the world of NFT Art

This fall, Elevate and Interac are teaming up to promote the possibilities of innovative and emerging technologies at the NFT Art Gallery. Featuring 40 pieces by 9 curators, this gallery is a celebratory conclusion of a residency program where underrepresented creators can spotlight their art on a global stage.

The world of emerging technologies provides a window into how equity can be built-in by design to foster innovation that works for all Canadians. From fostering inclusivity to supporting communities and opening new economic opportunities, the gallery will bring together creators and innovators to share knowledge and insights that will help bridge the digital divide.

Visit the NFT Art Gallery for free when you buy a pass to Elevate Festival, taking place Sept. 20-22, 2022 for your chance to learn how the technology and innovation that shape our digital world can be used as a force for good.
