Unicorn DAO, created and launched with Pussy Riot, supports female, non-binary, and LGBTIQ+ creators. It’s now open to new members.
NFTs are turning the world upside down. Anyone with an Internet connection (and a little bit of crypto) can create and launch a new creative project, without the need to pass through traditional distribution channels. We’re beginning to see the creative world rebuilt from the ground up, without the distortions of traditional middlemen (and yes, middlemen).
Unicorn DAO aims to sit at the center of this growing ecosystem, with a particular focus on diverse and underrepresented creators who want to build and/or extend their careers in this new wave of the Internet. We all know that the best creators aren’t just men and don’t just come from the US or other large economies around the globe. They include people from all backgrounds, colors, gender identities, and stripes.
That’s what Unicorn DAO wants to focus on and support. Like other DAOs, Unicorn DAO isn’t organized around one or two purported “experts.” Rather, it’s a growing “hivemind” of supportive members, aiming to identify and curate talented individuals, projects, and groups building and creating the next generation of media, technology, art, and culture.
UnicornDAO is aiming to bring a new lens and a paradigm shift to shake up the way creators are identified, sourced, and funded. Unicorn DAO is on a mission to help build the infrastructure and mentorship for a feminist and queer revolution on blockchain. To shine some light on this, even today, only 16% of sales in 2021 have been from female artists. The goal and core mission of Unicorn DAO are to onboard creators to Web3, specifically historically undervalued and underrepresented groups, and give them the tools and space to empower themselves. With the addition of these women and non-binary identifying and LGBTQ+ creators to the world of web3, UnicornDAO strives to build a top-tier network for feminists, queers, and their allies in this community. To headline it, we aim to:
So far, just in a few short months that UnicornDAO has been on the scene, we have already taken strides towards our goal to uplift and empower minority groups in the Web3 community. The DAO has purchased over one-thousand NFTs created by artists that identify within the women, non-binary, LGBTQ+ groups. All of the art in the DAO’s collection will be showcased at Unicorn's upcoming events at many of the well-known crypto and NFT conferences, art galleries, and museums around the world. We celebrate and honor the birth of NFTs as the beginning of one of the most impactful movements in the history of modern art.
Unicorn DAO is supported by a growing group of artists and art experts that are inspired and share this vision, many of whom include: Priyanka Desai (Tribute Labs), C Verdult, Yulia Shur, Diana Sinclair, Nadya Tolokonnikova (Pussy Riot), Sophie Cohen (Gagosian Gallery), Charli Cohen, IX Shells, Ppl Pleasr and more.
