How do you build a community of feminists with a single artwork?
For some, the advent of “picture for proof” profile image NFTs have made pioneering NFT projects status symbols for collectors. For others, they are canvases for self-expression to showcase your tastes and beliefs, even a rallying cry for messages of empowerment and equality. For Canadian digital artist Rachel Winter, her project Remarkable Women was a celebration of all women, guided to uplift, affirm and empower. On top of a heartwarming global community connected online, proceeds from secondary sales also go towards the Remarkable Women Impact Fund that benefits international causes dedicated to women, justice, equality and inclusion as voted by the holders of Remarkable Women NFTs.
In this instalment of K11 Konversations moderated by Emmy-nominated host Shira Lazar, we speak with Remarkable Women’s artist Rachel Winter and NFT launchpad House of First’s Chief Marketing Officer Nick Fontova to discuss Winter’s art centred on female empowerment, the work behind cultivating a growing NFT project, and how to build a global, like-minded community through art.
• Nick Fontova, ‘MrPinkNFT’ & Marketing Lead, House of First
• Rachel Winter, Artist, Remarkable Women
