Announcing the speakers for Voice’s NFT.NYC Kickoff event


In just a few weeks, NFT enthusiasts will descend upon to celebrate a milestone year: mainstream media coverage, massive sales, and major movement from brands and notable names. Voice will be celebrating too, but in our own way: by bringing more people into the world of NFTs, in line with our ultimate goal of making NFTs for everyone. 

We’re hosting an event called Getting into NFTs on the morning of Monday, November 1, followed by a gallery displaying works from our community members. 

Speaker announcement

We’re thrilled to announce our first round of speakers: artists who are making waves in the NFT community through their stunning work. 

Chad Knight will present a session on getting into digital art, sharing his journey and offering tactical advice for those just starting off. Knight is a freelance artist and the head of 3D Design at Nike, as well as a curator of Voice’s NFT Residency. 

Diana Sinclair will join our creators panel, discussing her work as a young artist in the NFT space who has already made headlines.  Sinclair is an internationally awarded visual artist, activist, and curator. Their artwork centers identity, self-exploration, and social justice.

Emonee LaRussa, fresh off selling out her NFT collection on Voice to benefit her nonprofit JumpStart Designers, will be the guest in a fireside chat with Voice CEO Salah Zalatimo about bringing young artists into the world of digital art. 

Gallery update

Additionally, our attendees will be treated to digital displays of a selected number of artworks produced by the Voice community. This gallery has been curated by Maliha Abidi, a Pakistani-American artist, author, and founder of “Story of Mental Health”. 

Abidi will also join Sinclair on the creators panel to discuss her work as an artist and an exciting upcoming NFT project. 

This event will be a true merging of the minds: where established artists mingle with those just stepping into the digital art space. There will be networking, panels, food and a lot of inspiration.
