OTAGROUP Inc. (Head office: Minami-ku, Hiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture; President: Ryuji Shimonishi) is pleased to announce the Meta Grandma Project will hold "Meta Grandma 1st Virtual Live" on Respect-for-Senior-Citizens Day (September 18)!
Thoughts for the event
Through our activities, Meta Grandma Project aims to convey to as many people as possible that it is not too late to take on challenges, no matter what age you are. Some of the members had aspirations of becoming idols when they were young, and the other has made CDs of her own singing and distributed them to her acquaintances.
This event is the first step toward the challenge of taking the "skills and passions" possessed by the elderly and sharing them with the world through IT technologies such as Metaverse, rather than keeping them in nursing homes and the community.
