When Artsteps launched as a platform for the creation of 3D digital spaces to host virtual exhibitions, no one could imagine the massive interest and broad spectrum of user stories on the platform following the first Covid-19 lockdown. Presenting your content inside an Artsteps preset template or personally built space has become a form of creative expression for hundreds of thousands of forward-thinking web users, who acknowledge the importance of 3D digital environments in a globalised contemporary society that is increasingly looking for phygital experiences to boost engagement and raise awareness on issues affecting its vulnerable groups. Through this process, various initiatives have found a means to showcase the incredible work that they do to support these people and the impact that they have on their everyday lives all over the world.
