Blockchain and Non-Fungible Token (NFT) have been one of the most discussed topics in 2021. The pioneer blockchain and security solutions provider UD and Arts For Good Foundation have collaborated to launch “The Art of Future” campaign featuring a series of art making workshops, with an aim to provide new perspectives in the way youths see art and technology; and create impact and new values in blockchain world.
During 22-30 December, Arts For Good Foundation will host a series of experimental art workshops where students’ collaborative artworks will be minted into NFTs on NFT marketplace OpenSea, supported by UD professional team.
“As technology continues to transform the way we live, we take pride in being leader that continually introduce innovative technology application to our clients, partners; and to foster interests in and understanding of technology in the local community. Through this unique initiative, we hope to inspire youngsters to think about what blockchain technology and art could intersect and create impact in the world,” said Eric Fan, CEO of UD.
With the rise of blockchain technology, artists around the world have started leveraging blockchain-based NFT to create and promote art. UD believes NFT is an innovative breakthrough and a game changer. The incorporation of art and technology might be the future for the art industry.
“We believe blockchain will be the trend in the coming years. Thanks to NFT art, it helps people make the first step to enter the blockchain world. NFT art is only the beginning, people are encouraged to keep exploring the boundless possibilities that innovative blockchain technology brought to our lives,” said Fan.
“We are thankful for the opportunity of developing our students' works to NFT. We aim to promote diverse and inclusive community in Hong Kong on the new platform. The collection of artworks is meant to reflect the individual and collective aspect of our future society. The creative process will emphasise on our individual feelings, as well as solidarity, respect, and collaboration among them. By incorporating with technology, we are giving them a new perspective of understanding what art and technology could be created to make impact in blockchainworld,” said Amanda Sun, founder of Arts For Good Foundation.
