Bay Backner has joined Orica, the ethical NFT platform as Head of Growth & Curation. Her first role was to curate the launch exhibition ‘A Fairer World’, sales from which were used to fund a school in the Ssese Islands, Uganda.
Bay selected Mellowmann, an emerging digital artist from East Germany to create fifteen new works for the show. These were both exhibited online and live in the AI & Blockchain Summit, Malta.
The ‘A Fairer World’ collection sold out, with 50% of sales to the artist and 50% to Ugandan NGO Bbanga Project for the build of the much-needed new school.
