Christos Makridis is the COO of Living Opera, an art and technology startup at the intersection of technology, fine arts, classical music, and philanthropy.
Technology is a vehicle for creating transformative, immersive experiences that empower and inspire people at scale. By combining the timeless beauty of fine art, especially opera, with technological tools, Living Opera is building a flourishing worldwide community.
The NFTs are a funding mechanism for giving: Living Opera provides free training and mentoring experiences for aspiring artists otherwise unable to receive resources, including providing them with world-class voice lessons in Italy.
Living Opera views blockchain technology as a catalyst for positive change in the arts. Using revenues from the Magic Mozart collection, they will launch a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) for grant-making, community-building, and education in the arts, starting with and specializing in opera, to award micro-grants to young artists and promote skill acquisition.
