MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE, ONE NFT AT A TIME.
Violence against women and girls remains the most pervasive human rights violation in the world, affecting more than 1 in 3 women—a figure that has remained largely unchanged over the last decade.
Lianna created space for solution-focused dialogue on Clubhouse, Twitterspaces and Linkedin Audio on how each and everyone of us can be agents of change to help shape a future that protects women and girls from violence.
REFLECTIONS 2022 is an NFT Exhibition curated by Nahid Shahalimi and Lianna Adams, presented by WE THE WOMEN x TEDxYouth@München to feature young artists in the NFT space.
The exhibition is displayed on Spatial.io and selected art works will be displayed IRL at the TEDxYouth@München event ‘What The F**k?’ in Werksviertel München as one of the main highlights of the event on 26th July 2022. The exhibition on Spatial.io will be running for a year.
We The Women NFT Exhibitions will be a series of exhibitions held in various metaverse galleries for the month of March 2022 and the main intention of these exhibitions is really to provide a platform to not only celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women but also the resilience of women. It’s a call to action for accelerating women’s equality and to create space for much needed dialogues for the empowerment of women.
This 1/1 NFT is an interpretation of the Goddess Ala, the earth goddess of the Ibo, African people of eastern Nigeria symbolising earth, morality, fertility and creativity. This work was created and painted digitally.
Lianna donated an artwork created specifically for The Rose Knight Foundation’s campaign to raise funds for the children of Uganda.
She is one of the 50 artists who created a unique piece in any style around the theme ‘Africa’
The Rose Knight Foundation was started for the people, kept by the people, and sponsored by love. We look to end poverty and effectively tackle human/child trafficking. We support innocent, mistreated, vulnerable, and abused persons with a passionate desire to help children. We wish to see everyone safe, sheltered, loved, and excited for their future.
StandUpForUnityNFTs (#SUFUNFTs) is a global awareness campaign for solidarity and unity with Afghanistan when Kabul fell to the Taliban on 15th August 2021. The campaign was spearheaded by Nahid Shahalimi, an Afghan-Canadian who had strong contacts on the ground that ensured accurate news reporting and state of Afghanistan as the Taliban took over. #SUFUNFTs mobilised members of the NFT community to address the ongoing humanitarian crisis that is still taking place in Afghanistan, led by Lianna. The aim of the campaign was to raise funds for the resettlement of the Afghan people and the education of women and girls within Afghanistan.
Hands Off Our Girls! is a campaign within the NFT space with one message: freedom and safety for all women and girls. We focus on art collaborations between NFT Artists who are keen to give women a voice. Our first project aims to celebrate Afghan women. Each Artist has used their signature style to create an NFT art piece depicting love, healing, unity and solidarity with every Afghan woman who needs a chance to live, learn, celebrate and educate the world about their culture, roots and ideologies using their own voice.
100% of the proceeds from the Hands Off Our Girls campaign will go toward funding scholarships of high level health services education of 50 young women from 16 provinces in Afghanistan.
“Women of Resilience” is a collection created for ‘The Fabric of Women’s Resilience’, a series of NFT exhibitions held in various metaverse galleries to mark International Women’s Day | Women’s History Month in March 2022.
It’s a call to action for accelerating women’s equality and to create much needed dialogues for the empowerment of women. The first series in “Women of Resilience” collection is ‘Strength of Women’ – 11 works of art featuring Afghan women in their respective traditional clothing from the different regions and tribes in Afghanistan.
The intention behind highlighting and featuring Afghan women for the “Women of Resilience” collection was really a way to honour the women of Afghanistan who have been and still are being oppressed under the Taliban rule. Each of these women are titled after qualities and characteristics that best represents what ‘Resilience’ means. To date, Afghanistan is the only country that does not allow the women and girls the rights to education.
