about vasia makris.

Vasia Makris, founder of moments., a creative agency

Introduced to Web3 in 2021, Vasia Makris left her full time career in education to establish The Crypt Gallery. Co founder of the world’s first NFT gallery in hospitality, Vasia quickly gained experience in event and project management, curations and exhibitions, community building and artist relations.

As the industry gained momentum, she had the opportunity to work on major events and activations alongside global artists and brands. With the aim of bringing people together and fostering community, yet always keeping art and culture at the forefront, events ranged from exhibitions and drop parties to private events and satellite events for major conference weeks.

Within the same year of opening their first location in Los Angeles at Dream Hollywood, The Crypt Gallery quickly expanded and opened their second location, at Dream Downtown in New York City. As COO, Vasia was responsible for managing both locations, spearheading new community initiatives, enhancing digital engagement and social media presence, maintaining artist relations, developing brand collaborations and optimizing daily operations to allow for scalability.

Previous clients include Christie’s Auction House, Lincoln, Chevrolet, Dream Hotel Group, Ice Cube’s Big3 League, Mario Chalmers, Trevor Jones, Emanuele Ferrari, Gabe Weis and AlienQueen.

With her growing experience as a builder and innovator in Web3, Vasia quickly noticed the disconnect between mainstream adoption and education needed to grow and scale the industry. She also noticed the need to make Web3 initiatives relatable and tangible to mass audiences in order to ensure integration.

Returning to her teaching roots, Vasia is passionate about onboarding the masses through strategic brand advisement and the creation of meaningful projects that keep art, community and culture at its core.

Resigning as COO, Vasia launched moments. a creative agency aimed to bridge industries and create meaningful experiences that connect, impact and inspire.

As a female in Web3 with a very unique journey, Vasia continues to pursue speaking engagements around the world. She aims to not only advocate and educate, but also inspire others to dream big, think outside the box and chase their passions – because truly anything is possible.
