What We're About
The Guild is an independent, self-funded, artist-led collective that creates collaborations between artists from all areas across the biosphere, from the OG's to the new and undiscovered gems. It was founded on Ethereum in early Q3 of 2020.
Formed as a group of artists who co-created together on large-scale art collaborations, the original Guild had a change in leadership after just a few months of operation due to internal developments. It was then reformed in late December 2020 under the new leadership with four core team members. They aligned themselves to a shared, yet unique vision for The Guild members and how its future would tie to the decentralised ecosystem.
The primary goal of the organisation is to spotlight and empower The Guild members via our unique approaches and partnerships. We believe in art and decentralisation, with the latter allowing artists to flourish in ways that have never been seen before. To that regard, we see that artists play a big part in the NFT world and what the metaverse is today.
The proceeds of each artwork are distributed according to our distribution chart with the majority going to the individual artists. We are firm believers in circular and sustainable economies and each of the talented and wonderful artists within our organization are advocates of creating real world change within their communities.
Our growth has been vastly organic and created using our time and energy as capital. Through many large collaborations and commercial releases, we have established ourselves as the first non-blockchain specific, hybrid DAO and became the FIRST known Non-Fungible Organisation (NFO).
We are futurists, agents of change, developers, parents, activists, punks, apes, angels, outliers, pixelfreaks, musicians, poets, innovators and artists but most importantly...we are a global family.
A lot of people tend to throw the word community around, we have it written into our DNA.
