artSTORM.nft is a collaborative project that leverages the power of art and decentralized technology to support and promote the creation of green art spaces in urban areas in Africa.
Organized as a DAO, artSTORM.nft is a collaboration between four organizations - ethsafari DAO, Public Space Network, About Art Africa, and Afrofuture DAO
We are bringing together community-based teams of placemakers and street artists to bring a green art storm to the walls of Nairobi and Kilifi, Kenya.
During the inaugural 2022 edition of artSTORM.nft, 20 brown, disused, or polluted spaces in Nairobi and Kilifi will be transformed into clean, safe, inclusive, and vibrant spaces for the community. The walls in these spaces will be transformed into works of art by some of the region’s best street artists and and community groups of placemakers will transform these brown spaces into green spaces.
Each transformation will be embedded in an NFT, containing before / after shots, high-res photos of the wall art and immersive video recordings of the new space. The NFT sale will launch around the ethsafari conference taking place between the 18th and 24th September 2022. Proceeds from the sales will support the artists and community placemakers.
