NFT Charity Auction Highlights Free Ukraine Event During World Economic Forum


The Free Ukraine Foundation is hosting a special charity event on May 25 in Davos, Switzerland, where a series of art pieces featuring Ukrainian artists is up for auction to raise funds and support the mission of peace for Ukraine and its people. The event is hosted in collaboration with the Mriya Art Mission, which is focused on preserving Ukrainian art, helping native artists and protecting the country’s cultural heritage.

To bring the NFTs to life, the Free Ukraine Foundation is working with Mint Werx, a premium NFT creative and production studio. Mint Werx is designing, creating and launching a series of three high-value NFTs that are combined with exclusive one-of-a-kind physical artworks that will be auctioned at the event. These NFTs feature the work of Artem Shestakov, a Ukraine native and world-renowned artist and photographer best known for his nature and landscape images. The physical art piece will be signed and numbered by the artist, along with a certificate of authenticity.

“We are steadfast in our mission of cultural diplomacy for peace, and we are honored to welcome our esteemed guests to the event and help build awareness and support for the efforts to preserve the culture of Ukraine during these challenging times,” said Andrey Kolodyuk, co-founder of the Free Ukraine Foundation. “The Mriya Art Mission is about coming together to defend the culture of Ukraine and ensure its existence by preserving art, music, paintings and theater, which are so important to the soul of Ukraine but threatened by the chaos of war.”

The charity event will take place Wednesday, May 25, from 9-11 p.m. CEDT and will be held at the Decentralized Web Gateway, a multiday event dedicated to exploring the benefits of decentralization, hosted by Filecoin Foundation.
