Challenges Faced by Small Cities
Many cities face significant challenges when it comes to bringing music and arts programs to their communities. The lack of infrastructure and financial support poses obstacles for local creatives and grassroots organizations. These entities require platforms that can provide long-lasting visibility, potentially leading to transformative changes within the city.

Animas has set out to revolutionize the festival and entertainment industry by leveraging web3 strategies to create accessible and immersive experiences, even in cities without traditional support or infrastructure for music, arts, and tech programs. Their innovative approach incorporates AR, XR, and NFT activations, transforming festivals into dynamic and futuristic showcases.
The Art Basel 2022 Experience
At Art Basel 2022, Animas partnered with Reality8 to craft a truly unique AR experience. Using Reality8 Venue software, Animas brought to life over 50 digital art pieces created by young members of the LGBTQ+ Prism Collective. This innovative software enabled Animas to create an AR gallery with ease, using a “drag and drop” interface.
Visitors wearing AR headsets were treated to a surreal sight, with framed art pieces appearing to float in a starry sky above them, and others suspended in a central walk-around area. This flexible AR experience could be seamlessly repositioned to suit multiple locations, making it easy to operate and adapt. The result was a captivating blend of live and virtual music, art, and performances, driving heightened engagement and sparking viral social buzz.
Animas, in collaboration with Reality8, has successfully broken down barriers and brought the magic of immersive AR experiences to smaller cities and festivals. By combining creativity with cutting-edge technology, they’ve created a blueprint for reimagining the future of entertainment. If you’re looking to take your events to the next level and leave a lasting impression, Animas and Reality8 are your partners in innovation.
