We’re building a residency program to change the ratio — dedicated to supporting women from underrepresented and marginalized communities.

We’re building a residency program to change the ratio — dedicated to supporting women from underrepresented and marginalized communities.

Here’s what we know

  • Top 18 museums in the US have collections that are 87% male & 85% white (Nmwa.org).
  • Art by women sells for 50% less than men’s (SSRN paper).
  • Women make up 16% of the NFT art market and 5% of NFT sales.

These are the current statistics and we're here to change it. As a Resident, you will transform a body of work that you’ve wanted to make–or have already made–into an NFT collection. The collections will cover themes that connect our creators to the world’s most pertinent topics. We are here to guide you through the process, all the way from onboarding through building and launching a powerful NFT project.
