Voice celebrates uniqueness, empowerment, and awareness, paired with creativity and innovation by showcasing the NFT works of various artists belonging to underrepresented communities from all over the world.
From self-care, ethereal aesthetics, storytelling, and showing cultures, to celebrating disabilities and women’s rights awareness, Voice is doing something meaningful and positive in the Web3 world.
NFTs or non-fungible tokens are irreplaceable digital collectibles with proof of ownership. This new technology gives artists and content creators the freedom to explore infinite possibilities without any limitations.
NFT removes the stress of copyright laws that limit artists from owning their own artwork by providing a platform where artists can choose to share or sell their art with proof of creation.
Digital art, photography, music, audio clips, video clips, and any other content in digital form can be owned by individuals without any third-party involvement.
Utilizing this technology for a greater good, Voice is a newly emerging NFT platform working toward promoting something positive by highlighting the works of underrepresented and minority communities around the world.
Voice is a carbon-neutral NFT minting platform built with multi-chain compatibility and an easy-to-use system for artists and creators around the world. It is mainly team curators, artists, and technologists that use NFTs to empower creators.
Voice introduces Women Rise Month
Women Rise is a project by Maliha Abidi who curates works of different women celebrating positivity, creativity, diversity, and culture. It is linked to the global campaign to eliminate violence against women.
Voice partnered with Women Rise for its NFT Residency program to bring together more women artists and creators on its platform. It is one of the main programs that have made it to the mainstream as women unleash their creativity in various art forms.
Some of the most notable works include:
Tranquility by Yahdiogo Agbo
Yahdiogo Agbo is an emerging photographer who captures the art of storytelling in the form of photographs. She brings her imagination to life through light and lenses.
In her ‘Tranquility’ NFT collection, she captures a young woman in an elegant setting to show “elements required in our lifestyle.”
“Tranquility arts are timeless art works,” Agbo says, “and reflect on some experiences I had while growing up.”
Experiences are different for everyone, a moment experienced by one person will be completely different from another person. This is because everyone thinks differently. Agbo’s photographs work the same way. It is truly an inspiring way of conveying a message.
Artworks by Sua Agape
Sua Agape is a Guatemala-based digital artist and illustrator who portrays nature, cosmos, the beauty of women, and mischievous creatures. Her work portrays the power of the sun and flowers with women as a center.
The vibrant colors and serenity show the power of women and how together with nature they thrive to become who they are meant to be. It is an immersive art that gives a sense of belonging to the viewers.
Psalms of the Liminal by Barbara Minishi
Barbara Minishi is a multidisciplinary artist who uses her background experience in direction, photography, photo, film, VR & AR in the form of visual clip NFTs.
Psalms of the Liminal is an “ode to opening to intimacy with self and connecting sensually to the world while undergoing metamorphosis.” She explores the concept of self-transformation and self-acceptance to empower women around the world.
“Do not let an idea of an identity stop you from showing up fully in your power,” Minishi says.
Voice’s Women Rise NFT Residency program has many more artists that are worthy of recognition.
Kavl is a Hong Kong-based digital artist who explores her culture with vibrant colors.
Chukwu Adaeze is a Nigerian-based visual artist who explores women’s struggles with infertility in the “I Waited For You” series.
Senaida, a Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist, presents THE NOTHING IN BETWEEN. This is a three-part experiential sonic collection that explores light and darkness together inspired by the concept of “awakening” in Zen Buddhism.
Other than that, there are independent artists selling their art on Voice too. The most noteworthy is Nathaniel Parrott’s How to Kill a Wildflower which honors mental health and his journey as an artist.
All in all, Voice is empowering artists to come out and show their inner selves without any discrimination or prejudice. The platform is opening doors by making it easier to mint their NFTs and promote them to their fans while keeping full ownership of their work.
Just recently, it announced a partnership with PhotoVogue to help the brand transition towards NFTs and bring its photographers on the platform. As of now, no information has been shared about the NFT drop but it will be coming soon!
