If you’re a World of Women (or WoWG) holder, prepare your digital wallet because the first Artfest edition begins in less than 24 hours! This event aims to celebrate top artists while giving back to the community. From free-to-claim NFTs to virtual gatherings, the seasonal Artfest brings WoW collectors together – all under the Full Moon.
What is the World of Women Artfest?
Artfest is a new digital event created by World of Women for the WoW and WoWG NFT holders. Community members will be able to mint free digital artwork from over ten digital artists hand-picked by the project’s team.
These artists are talented storytellers ready to share and honor unique cultures around the globe. This season, World of Women will start revealing such artworks during the first night of Artfest, on February 6th.
This date also marks the last night with a Full Moon this season – and it’s no accident!
“According to legend, the WoW and WoWG families from all around the galaxy would assemble under the light of the Full Moon to celebrate their greatest artists and storytellers.”
In other words, every WoW / WoWG holder will watch the Full Moon tonight as they’re waiting for Artfest to begin. If you’re part of this community too, here’s what you should know:
What is the WoW 2023 Artfest?
First of all, World of Women’s Artfest is a seasonal event, each starting on a Full Moon. Each edition will take place on a different planet in the WoW Galaxy, allowing holders to explore new venues.
For example, this season’s Artfest will take place on Rainbow Orb. The planet has a dreamy vibe with suspended patios and vibrant cities full of love and life.
Every day during the event, community members can claim one NFT based on their WoW or WoWG’s skin tone trait (known as Origin Planet). Each user can claim one NFT for each skin tone they have per wallet daily at 12 pm EST.
Note that WoWG NFT holders will get different artwork from the WoW holders. The founding team selected seven artists for the WoW collectibles and eight for the WoWG drops – so let’s meet them:
