ImpactNFT aims to bring together NFT works that support social and charity causes in Hong Kong and beyond.
ImpactNFT is set to launch Hong Kong’s first ever Non-Fungible Token (NFT) Exhibition with a focus on supporting global causes. The event will run for 10 days from 15 – 24 October, and attendees can browse the offline exhibition at the Soho House Hong Kong, or online in a metaverse space.
In line with their goal of driving social impact with NFTs, the ImpactNFT exhibition will feature artworks from a number of organisations with a cause. This includes art charity organisation Sovereign Art Foundation, anti-wildlife trafficking group Break The Chain, environmental organisation Earth.Org, and blockchain-powered conservation platform Project Ark.
“We want to show Hong Kong and the world the power of NFTs for social and environmental impact by creating a win-win for artists, charities, and our partners,” said Roy Weissbach, Business Development Advisor at Project Ark and its parent company Carbonbase. “The ImpactNFT Exhibition is spotlighting projects merging art and technology to change the face of sustainability forever.”
Other notable programmes of the ImpactNFT exhibition includes a display of artworks by NFT artist VintageMozart to support the community-run Nashulai Maassai Conservancy in East Africa, works by Mexican artists advocating for indigenous groups, and a preview of the upcoming NFT auction by South China Morning Post for their yearly Christmas-themed fundraising drive Operation Santa Claus.

Our initiative to integrate NFTs across all of our ecosystem services makes the ImpactNFT Exhibition a perfect partnership opportunity.”said MANTRA DAO Senior Marketing Manager Joanna Chan.
