AfrofutureDAO’s Operations Lead, Ekene Odigwe, develops a training program to onboard African artists on web3
DENVER, CO, May 14, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — AfrofutureDAO, a Web3 launchpad creating opportunities for African creatives, has completed its collaborative project called artStorm. The project brought together community-based teams of placemakers and street artists to revamp 20 brown, disused, or polluted spaces in Nairobi and Kilifi, Kenya. These transformed spaces are now clean, safe, inclusive, and vibrant for the community to enjoy. The walls of these spaces were adorned by some of the region’s top street artists, including Alfred Wango, Christine Karuma, Paul Gichi, and Ndereva Mutua, while placemaking teams transformed the brown spaces into green ones. AfrofutureDAO also minted the artwork into Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), which are currently available for purchase on the blockchain platform. Part of the proceeds from the sale will support the growth of artists and green spaces in urban areas in Africa.
Africa’s digital nomad and Web3 operations pioneer, who is currently the AfrofutureDAO’s Operations Lead, Ekene Odigwe, created the training program for the artists, established a smooth onboarding process, and set up the platform for the sale of the NFTs. In describing the success of the ArtStorm collection, Mr Odigwe said, “This achievement is a testament to the potential of blockchain and Web3 technologies to revolutionise the African art scene. We will continue to explore the prospects of art, web3, and blockchain technology to support and promote the development of green spaces in African urban areas. We aim to discover and onboard more African artists to web3 and blockchain.”
The collection, themed African Streets of the Future, is now live on the foundation and can be accessed at https://foundation.app/collection/artstorm. The floor price for these NFTs is 1.00 Eth, and part of the proceeds from sales will be used to support the growth of artists and green spaces in urban areas in Africa.
Artstorm is a collaboration of AfrofutureDAO, ethsafari DAO, Public Space Network, and About Art Africa.
