About The Show
RedKiteNFT is delighted to announce the imminent launch of their pioneering Humanity show, a unique NFT launch, the first of its kind, bringing together 33 artists to raise funds for refugees affected by conflict worldwide.
This groundbreaking show, marrying the worlds of NFTs and Fine Art for the first time, will consist of one artwork per artist, sold in limited editions of eight, with 256 NFTs on the Polygon blockchain available for sale.
It marks the beginning of a series of exciting drops orchestrated by RedKiteNFT, curating works from a community of contemporary artists to transcend traditional art collection and bring it to the NFT space on Web3.
“Humanity has been a voyage of discovery for us. The charities we’ve been working with have opened our eyes to the global refugee crisis and the amazing long-term support they provide. It’s compelling motivation to try and pull something off on this scale, so early in our journey.”
“The support and generosity of all the artists, partners and our discord community have been incredible. There’s a lot to be proud of, the artwork is spectacular and we hope to raise a significant amount to donate through this group show.” James Robbins, CMO of RedKiteNFT
The show’s catalyst is the current Ukraine conflict. Through the help and support of the wider art world, art collectors, creatives and fans alike, RedKiteNFT intends to bring awareness to this and other nations stricken by conflict worldwide.
Global crises have caused the displacement of thousands of communities, RedKiteNFT recognises this and wants to show its support through donating proceeds to the following charities:
- The Refugee Council is a leading charity working with refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK. Founded in 1951, following the creation of the UN Refugee Convention, we exist to support and empower people who have made the heart breaking decision to flee conflict, violence and persecution in order to rebuild their lives here in the UK.
- The Voices of Children Foundation provide emergency assistance to women and children — refugees from all over Ukraine — essentials, settlement and relocation; provide psychological assistance to children and parents affected by the war; arranging centers for group classes with children who were evacuated from the shelling areas; provide individual assistance to families with children affected by the war.
- UNICEF UK, Children’s Emergency Fund The impacts of conflict, COVID-19, climate change, and other disasters are being felt around the world. And, as is so often the case in times of crisis, it is children and young people who are feeling these effects the hardest. UNICEF UK’s Children’s Emergency Fund (CEF) is helping to address this, providing a vital and urgent response before, during and after emergencies. Every year, thanks to the generosity of their supporters UNICEF UK responds to around 300 emergency situations. Not all of these will make the news and some will quickly be forgotten but all of them have an impact on children.
Of the 70:30 per cent split each NFT usually has with RedKite and artist collaboration, RedKite will be donating 25% to the charities, retaining 5% to cover costs. All collaborating artists will donate 35% with the voluntary option to donate more. With this and the help of the art world community, RedKite hopes to make a significant contribution to the aid provided by the supported charities.
“I think the recent news has touched us all in some way, leaving us feeling somewhat helpless. As with any global crisis, artists are some of the first to get involved to help out, and as an NFT platform with access to these artists and a means to raise funds, RedKite made the quick decision to put on Humanity, to aid refugee charities.”
“We have some fantastic artists in our line-up, most of whom jumped at the chance to be involved, turning around some brilliant works in a short space of time. This show will not disappoint.” Angie Davey, Founder and Curator, RedKiteNFT
NFTs will be dropped in editions of eight. NFT artwork will be available to view on the Humanity campaign site, soon to be followed by listing on the redkitenft.io marketplace with respective countdown timers to launch. Keep an eye on the RedKiteNFT Discord for the latest updates and sneak peeks. You’ll probably bump into some of the artists for a chat there too.
With varying prices, art enthusiasts and seasoned art collectors can come together to celebrate art and its evolution while knowing the money they invest is going towards a good cause.
Additionally, a donation button will offer collectors and fans the chance to donate any sum to the cause. No matter the amount, donors will receive a thank you NFT from RedKiteNFT that will grant them access to various benefits and bring a community of art lovers together through the kind act of supporting the cause.
From the RedKiteNFT Discord channel, verified Humanity NFT holders, including RedKite thank you NFT, will have access to the private HUMANITY Discord channel. Within which, RedKiteNFT will run exclusive regular promos with the collaborating artists to reward investors’ charity support.
