FOUNDER'S WELCOME

'' I am extremely proud to be able to give back to the society through the Digital Art Foundation. I come from a humble beginnings and through my journey of art I found my voice and I hope Digital Art Foundation would be able to share what I have learnt to the next generation and provide support and funding for young artists to reach their goals. I am also extremely pleased that through Digital Art Foundation, we are able to advocate gender equality in Asia and provide a platform for young female artists to exhibit their work.

 

I sincerely thank all the art collectors and companies who work with Digital Art Fair and support my vision on giving back to the art community in large.

 

In 2021, Digital Art Foundation provided funding and exhibition opportunities to 2 young female artists in Hong Kong; donated 5% of Digital Art Fair ticketing proceeding to Hong Kong City University for the university to fund their gallery for university students. 1% of our NFT Sales went to Coralition to support planting corals internationally. We also worked with an African Art Collective to provide them an exhibiting opportunity at the Digital Art Fair. I look forward to continue our foundation's work this year in 2022.  ''

Digital Art Fair Asia invites artists based in Hong Kong to present artworks to the Incubation Programme for the 2022 Hong Kong Edition, integrated in the programme of its 2nd Edition, to be held in Hong Kong, Q3 2022. With a strong focus on uplifting voices of young women, successful applicants of the DAFA22 incubation programme will go through a programme that brings them closer to the ever-changing landscape of digital fine art, learning skills and techniques that cover digital art-making and digital art showing. The artists will work closely with the DAFA team and leverage off the DAFA network of artists and partners. The artists will also be featured at DAFA22 with a dedicated space to showcase their work to a larger audience.

UNIVERSITY ENGAGEMENT

As part of our ongoing initiative to create a healthy ecosystem in Hong Kong for all demographics, we will be continuing our University Engagement programme for DAFA2022. Last year, we donated a large sum of our profits to City University of Hong Kong, to ensure the continued growth of their support for their students.

 

This year, we aim to provide a more holistic engagement for students and artists involved in our Programme, and we have identified 4 more areas of focus. These areas are,

Academia, Resources, Junior Team, and Artworks.
