Creating a More Inclusive Metaverse with Grace Gaustad

Grace Gaustad 3D NFP Avatar Featured

Daz 3D is announcing an exciting collaboration with LA-based singer-songwriter Grace Gaustad for the launch of the upcoming Non-Fungible People (NFP) avatar collection. This NFT project is a collection of 8,888 unique women and some non-binary PFP avatars, artistically rendered in a hyper-real style. In recognition of Grace’s advocacy for self-acceptance and self-expression, we’ve designed an honorary NFP specifically for Grace. The NFP collection is expected to launch soon.

As a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, Grace Gaustad creates music and art that magnifies her message on tape, on-screen, and beyond. With her independent full-length debut, BLKBX: wht r u hding?, Grace creates a multi-faceted, multi-sensory world where music, video, and story come together to create a one-of-a-kind experience where all people are welcome. Through her multi-media curation, Grace has created a safe haven for a generation facing anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, uncontrolled emotions, and self-harm tendencies.

“As someone who has struggled with depression, bullying, and self-identity, I have used my music and art to promote self-acceptance and positive change,” said Grace Gaustad. “When I learned about Daz 3D’s upcoming collection of avatars, I knew I wanted to collaborate with them. Not only does their Non-Fungible People project stand for the same ideals I do — self-acceptance, self-expression, and self-love — the collection features phenomenal hyper-real artwork that users will love. I can’t wait to enter the metaverse with my avatar.”

 

 

We’re honored to receive Grace’s support for Non-Fungible People, an NFT collection that also seeks to break molds and promote inclusion and acceptance of all. The collection honors diversity and uniqueness, with each of the NFP NFTs being algorithmically generated using a wide variety of unique characteristics and traits. A portion of proceeds will be donated to support women and non-binary people in technology and other causes.

“We’re excited to work with such a talented and multi-faceted artist, and present her with a custom-made NFT from the collection,” said Jessica Rizzuto, Senior VP of eCommerce at Daz 3D. “Working with Grace is our way of supporting her global message of unconditional self-acceptance. Everyone is welcome in the metaverse, and PFP avatars allow all people to create their digital identity in any way they’d like.”
