Polygon’s first NFT meet-up for Kenyan artists was a hit. Participation was encouraged for artists from disenfranchised communities that would otherwise not have exposure to NFTs. Polygon’s Michael Jordan, from the Enterprise team, led the discussion. Along with the event theme, an ethical venue, parity, and social commitment played a vital role in the event’s success (over 70 attendees!). The activity took place at the August 7th Memorial Museum, a highly respected place for Kenyans. By choosing such an important venue, we intend to reinforce messages of peace while transmitting the significance of participants’ work. The next steps include hands-on support for artists as they mint NFTs followed by a showcasing at Polygon’s Nairobi Gender Hackathon (coming up in April).
