Project Timeline: March 1 th – March 22 th 2022
Objective: The main objective of this project is to give visibility to women and trans Brazilian NFT artists, bringing them to the Gambiarra store in Mintbase (NEAR blockchain) so they will be able to participate in the FEMINU (Feminine NFTs Universe) Exhibition that will take place in the Museu.xyz in Cryptovoxels from March 8th – March 22th 2022. Each onboarded artist (proposal already approved by Mintbase - [APPROVED] Onboarding women and trans Brazilian artists - #7 by marianeu ) will mint at least 2 artworks with at least one at 1N price, and buy a 1N NFT from the Gambiarra store. Near artists will also participate of the exhibition.
Justification (benefits): This is the first time in the NFT world that will occur an exhibition exclusive for women and trans artists and this is important, first of all because in the art market as in every market, this gender is underpaid and don’t have the same opportunities as men. We need to pay attention and bring all the support we can to promote events that put women and trans artists in the spotlights, including anyone who identifies with the female gender.
FEMINU Exhibition intend to achieve this goal and for that to happen, we already have a perfect place, the Museu.xyz that will gently host the exhibition for free and we have a perfect date for the opening – March 8th – Women International Day.
A video will be done as part of the historical registration on the Exhibition. It will be recorded as a chat to be posted on YouTube and displayed in FEMINU Exhibition. Theme: women in the art market and NFTs, with the participation of:
- a Gambiarra artist representing the store (to be defined),
- Mia Siufi, the owner of Supernova Arts, first Latin American gallery to have only women’s art, and
- Ghini, as the mastermind, organizer and curator of the exhibition.
This project intend to bring to Gambiarra the Near artists and the onboarded artists ( link of the approved proposal by Mintbase above) with all the artworks of the exhibition minted there, bringing visibility to everyone, artists, store and Mintbase.
Gambiarra will grow significantly in number of artists (almost 50% increase at least) and at least 50 sells in the store because of the onboarding project. Gambiarra will be mentioned in the curatorial text and will have their logo exposed in every disclosure, together with the exhibition logo to be made by the designer and artist of Gambiarra, Natasha Cremonese.
We will be making history and it would be great to have Gambiarra as partner in this endeavor.
Project and Timeline: In order to fulfill the objective, Ghini will be organizing and coordinating all the exhibition, including:
- planning and general organization (already in progress)
- opening a Discord Channel - FEMINU - in order to inform and help the artists during all the process – Last week of January
