about this project


Bringing real culture to the metaverse

The Finnish Metagallery makes art more accessible and interesting for more diverse audiences. The gallery was opened in Decentraland and created with the goal of shaking the foundations of how art galleries are experienced and operated. The Gallery is curated by the users and works as a platform for collaborations and events. It uses airdropped wearable as ERC-721 voting token on Snapshot, making this the first art institute to use a DAO voting tool on the blockchain.

The Finnish Metagallery is the first step towards building a community driven platform that makes art more accessible and explores new ways of experiencing art.

Art is a universal language and it should be accessible and open for everyone.

Challenge The Finnish National Gallery is the largest art museum in Finland. The Finnish National Gallery’s collection includes more than 42,000 works of art.

Mission of the The Finnish National Gallery is to develop Finnish cultural heritage and make art accessible to the public.

In a constantly changing world, it is crucial for established art institutions to find ways to remain relevant and adapt to change. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Finnish National Gallery came to the conclusion that the audience for art galleries needs to change in order for the gallery to stay relevant in a post-covid world.

Rapidly changing demographics present a big challenge for long-established institutions like The Finnish National Gallery. To appeal to a younger and more diverse audience, museums need to find new ways to engage with visitors and make their collections more relevant and accessible.
