Fateful Youth is the first live-action NFT drop in the metaverse.

CREATED FOR CULTURE, CHARITY, & COMMUNITY
AN EXPERIMENT GALEN OAKES

JOIN THE DISCORD

The Fateful Youth project is a huge creative collaboration that spans 6 mediums and over 70 creatives to compose a whole new artform — and with it launch the first live action NFT drop to hit the metaverse. Each unique avatar comes with an editorialized storytelling accompaniment and production credits written into its code. The project champions emerging and underserved creatives incentivized with ownership, and is pursuing a pioneering cross-chain NFT drop structure that leverages Ethereum and Solana simultaneously.

Merging fashion, art, and multimedia storytelling through cutting-edge digital effects to create UltraHD avatars, Fatal Youth is redefining the interface between the physical and digital world.

We live in a delicate balance with our planet, and every day we get closer to the tipping point. The environment can’t hold. Some say it’s already too late. We need fundamental shifts to create new systems that replace our broken ones to survive. The youth of today will face this dilemma —  one with fatal consequences. 

Fateful Youth is an experiment in art, culture, and community. It’s a call to action in the metaverse that signals alarm about conditions in our physical world. It’s a challenge to the status quo of NFTs and its dull, one-dimensional simulacra. It’s about empowering collaborators and participants equitably, and supporting Pencils for Promise, a non-profit that builds schools in developing nations.

Fateful Youth is partnering with Pencils of Promise, a non-profit that builds schools in developing nations. Fateful Youth is committed to donating $150k over the following twelve months to Pencils of Promise, which will be directed towards the construction of approximately three schools.

A core mission of Fateful Youth is to drive action from the metaverse into the real world, action that empowers communities to build according to congruous visions like audacity, learning, transparency, and community.

Pencils of Promise is the first of many organizations Fateful Youth intends to support in service of converting art into action and proving the multifaceted value that NFTs can bring into the world — be it the digital realm or the one we all already share.
