- RedkiteNFT’s new art show “Humanity” goes live tomorrow to raise funds for refugees.
- Thirty-three traditional and NFT artists, along with over 256 NFTs, will be featured in this art show.
- The funds will be donated to UNICEF, The Refugee Council, and The Voices of Children Foundation.
The fine art NFT platform, RedKiteNFT, collaborated with 33 traditional and contemporary NFT artists across the globe, including Fanakapan, Dalek, and Ben Eine, to launch a group NFT art show “Humanity” tomorrow (May 31, 2022). This show seeks to raise funds for refugees affected by conflicts worldwide.
Marrying fine arts with web3, Humanity art sale will feature 256 NFTs, with one artwork from each of the 33 artists sold in limited editions of eight on the Polygon blockchain.
The catalyst of this art show is primarily the ongoing Ukraine-Russia conflict. Through this, RedKiteNFT intends to raise awareness of the global humanitarian crisis that has caused the displacement of thousands of communities. The funds collected through the support of worldwide art collectors, curators, and fans will be thereby donated to The Refugee Council, The Voices of Children Foundation, and UNICEF UK, Children’s Emergency Fund.
Speaking about the 2021-launched company and its initiative, the Chief Marketing Officer of RedKiteNFT, James Robbins stated, “Humanity has been a voyage of discovery for us. The charities we’ve been working with have opened our eyes to the global refugee crisis and the amazing long-term support they provide. It’s compelling motivation to try and pull something off on this scale, so early in our journey.”
He further added:
The support and generosity of all the artists, partners, and our discord community have been incredible. There’s a lot to be proud of, the artwork is spectacular and we hope to raise a significant amount to donate through this group show
The cost split of every NFT is 70:30, in proportion between RedKiteNFT and the artists. All collaborating artists will donate at least 35% of their NFT’s selling price to the charity with a voluntary option to donate more. RedKite will be donating 25% to the cause, retaining 5% to cover costs.
The show will go live tomorrow on RedKiteNFT’s YouTube channel at 10:00 pm BST.
