The program focuses on collecting art from independent artists within underrepresented and marginalized communities
BROOKLYN, NY, June 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Voicethe digital art marketplace, is pleased to announce a partnership with Katya Suh and the Suh Family Foundation on a $40,000 commitment to supporting digital artists. The Foundation is the very first partner of Voice’s Astronaut Club Charitable Matching Program, an initiative designed for nonprofit and family foundations to support emerging Web3 artists. The program focuses on independent artists from underrepresented and marginalized communities, with resources going directly to artists by collecting their NFTs on Voice.
The Suh Family Foundation works hand-in-hand with communities to provide resources across three pillars that have been critical to Suh’s success: education, health and wellness, and empowerment. Through efforts led by Katya, the Suh Family Foundation has worked with Voice over the past three months to produce a program that provides the best support for artists on the platform.
The Suh Family Foundation will collect pieces from the upcoming Voice x Street Theory NFT Collection, which has been produced by some of the world’s top street artists in their foray into the digital space.
“The Suh Family Foundation is passionate about helping individuals on their journey to empowerment,” said Katya Suh, co-founder of the Suh Family Foundation. “Our work with the Foundation aligns so closely with Voice’s commitment to supporting multicultural artists and we look forward to all the great work this partnership will enable artists to create.”
Voice has a long-standing focus on supporting emerging artists through several residency programs and curatorial efforts. This new opportunity showcases the best form of support: collecting their art allows them to keep creating.
“If we can help a digital artist take a step closer to their side shaking up their core business, we think we’re headed in the right direction,” said Salah Zalatimo, CEO of Voice.
The art world is not known for its diversity. In fact, the top 18 museums in the United States have collections that are 87% male and 85% white. Although often hailed as an excellent equalizer, Web3 has begun to show early signs of mirroring some of Web2’s inequities. Voice is proud to publicly commit to supporting artists of all backgrounds as they enter the digital space.
Voice is an easy-to-use, carbon-neutral NFT platform that supports multiple channels. At Voice, we believe that NFT technology will change the internet by bringing verified ownership to our digital world. We are building a way for digital art to be collectible.
