ALTERNATIVE CROWD FUNDING TO HELP PEOPLE ACCESS HOUSING
COVID has disrupted many areas of life recently. The pandemic’s devastating effects have particularly affected the world of real estate —
rents were cancelled, homes foreclosed, and people with less disposable income became houseless. With very little resources and a team
of four at including Ryan Holly and Dylan Hansen, the founder of UNDR1ROOF, a black female graffiti artist named Lädy Millard, decided
that she could ask her artist community to create NFTs that could revolutionize housing access after COVID.
Artists from around the world have submitted conceptual houses that the team created into NFTs that are currently being sold on various Marketplaces such as Opensea.io and Foundation. The funding is being used to simply house people. The team at UNDR1ROOF has housed two people in the last two weeks even though they are still in the fundraising stages. The team also formed an initiative called “The Meek Club” where membership of $1 a month gives access to voting rights and funds the creation of a DAO.
Lädy Millard has gone through multiple struggles in recent years including being displaced — after being arrested for protesting at Occupy Wall Street— The home she lived in was in disrepair from a pipe that froze and burst, flooding the entire first floor of her then 3 story home and artist studio. There were little to no resources then too, but then Lädy Millard banded together every artist that she knew and took a
swift tactic of inviting them into the space to graffiti bomb the space. The 53 Artists that came to rescue the space included such names
like Ben Frost , Swoon ,Wizard Skull, Shaina Yang & Kingbee to name a few. The artists donated works and raised the money to fix the
plumbing. The tactic was successful and UNDR1ROOF celebrated with a huge house party.
Fast forward 7 years later and UNDR1ROOF has now generously turned the idea of a Community of artists across the world banding together on it’s head. The fist $300 they raised went to help house Alphonse Mendy of Gambia Africa & Peter Fowlin in the island of Jamaica
West Indies. “We live Undr1roof “ says the artist who goes by the name Lädy — “What happens to the least of us is felt by us all.“
The team is planning an event on Clubhouse called “ The World’s Largest House Party” on May 17th 2021 at 10pm. Donate to
