Hello Creatives DAO!
The generous support and collaboration we have continued to receive through the NEAR ecosystem has enabled our work to grow and thrive!
IRL our organization works to transform surplus produce into healthy juices and smoothies that we give for free to the unhoused folks we organize with.
Each juice incorporates reclaimed food waste and creates a beautiful work of art, bringing light and beauty into the streets. The encampments we work at can be dark, bleak spaces; bringing bright colors, joyful energy, and nourishing medicine is an art that can open & transform those who receive it.
We will create NFT’s that show the behind the scenes of our operation and will educate about the nutritious ingredients we use. These beautiful graphics will educate & inspire about the beauty of this work.
NFT’s purchased will represent a digital marker of Mutual Aid performed in the streets of Oakland CA, each NFT representing a certain number of juices distributed to unhoused Oaklanders.
This work is carried out by a team of volunteers. Our project this month aims to support the livelihood of the culinary artists carrying out this important work.
