One of the highlights of NFT NYC last week came during an exhibit of Haitian artwork that was a preview of a new NFT collection that launched today as part of the Hope for Haiti project.
The June 22 event took place in lower Manhattan at a popup gallery orchestrated by SuperChief, an artist-run gallery that has begun showcasing high-quality NFT aftworks in conjunction with major conferences like NFT NYC and NFT LA before that. Participating were The Giving Block, which provides a donation solution for nonprofits to fundraise cryptocurrencies; Civic, whose Civic Pass protocol protects artists and fans from bad actors looking to manipulate the NFT market; Snowcrash, which is handling the minting of the artworks on the Solana blockchain, and Haitian artists whose works were displayed.
At Amberfi and our new project, the Global Creatives Society, we hope to work with Hope for Haiti and other Caribbean artists and institutions to support the livelihoods of Web3 creatives in the region.
Here are a handful of photos from last week’s event:
