Hi
We are Agnese Gemetto and Mahdi Farimani, artists and blockchain activists located in Helsinki Finland.
We believe in the transformative capabilities of NFTs as the intersection of art and technology to make a real-world impact.

We are excited to announce our crowdfunding campaign for Art for Life, a transformative project that harnesses the power of art to make a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by conflict. We invite you to join us in this meaningful endeavor and be part of a movement that promotes peace, understanding, and resilience through creative expression.


Project Overview

A global initiative using NFT sales on the TON blockchain to directly fund essential humanitarian aid for victims of the war anywhere in the world.
Combines a digital art open call with educational resources, culminating in a hybrid physical/virtual exhibition amplifying both the artists and the urgent need for assistance.

Key Components:
Open Call for Submissions: Artists of all levels submit work reflecting themes of peace, healing, cross-cultural connection, and resilience in the face of war.
TON NFT Bootcamp: Hands-on workshops to onboard new artists to the TON blockchain and NFT minting on TON Diamonds.
Immersive Exhibition: Showcase in Metropolia Hall (Helsinki) with a robust virtual gallery experience for global access.
Direct Humanitarian Impact: 50% of all NFT sale proceeds go to vetted aid organizations chosen by the artists.

Goals & Objectives:
Raise significant funds to support immediate relief efforts in conflict zones.
Empower artists to use their talents for social good, fostering a global creative community for change.
Educate the public about the potential of NFTs as a force for positive impact.
Position Siderall and partner organizations as leaders in the humanitarian use of blockchain technology.

Target Audience:
Digital artists (both NFT natives and those new to the space)
Socially conscious art collectors and NFT enthusiasts
