“Art giving a vision to a voice. Poetry giving a voice to a vision.”

This Poetry-Art NFT collection is inspired by the collaborative works of Steven and Reefka Schneider. Their poetry-art tells a story of the human spirit and its quest for happiness and fulfillment. 

Reefka and Steven co-created the border-crossing poetry-art books and exhibits, Borderlines: Drawing Border Lives/Fronteras: dibujando las vidas fronterizas and The Magic of Mariachi/ La Magia del Mariachiwhile living on the U.S. / Mexico borderTheir poetry-art is a testimony to the spirit, the people, and the culture of the Southwest. 

By placing poetry and art side by side they invite you into a world of image and word, figure and figure of speech, a world in which the borders of one medium touch another. Reefka’s artworks in pastel, watercolor, and charcoal inspired Steven’s poems, which reflect his deep knowledge of the classical tradition of Ekphrasis, poetry written in response to works of art. 

 “La Guitarronera” was selected to become an NFT because of its layering and rich palette, which lends itself to unique and colorful variations in the Metaverse. Each NFT in this limited edition of 100 is an original, highly collectible, work of art and both sales and resales will benefit the non-profit HIAS. We have chosen to partner with ViciNFT because of their mandatory charity component which will equal 20% of the auction proceeds, making “NFTs for the common good”.

Join our Dreamwalkers Community

Our  Dreamwalkers Community is comprised of people across the world coming together for the common good by supporting one charity at a time. In our initial NFT offerings, we are bringing awareness and support to The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS). HIAS is a Jewish American nonprofit organization that provides humanitarian aid and assistance to refugees around the world. They advocate for the rights of all displaced people forced to flee their homelands to rebuild their lives and seek to create a world in which they find welcome, safety, and opportunity. HIAS is working with their partners to provide emergency humanitarian aid in Ukraine. The HIAS emergency response team landed in Warsaw, Poland on March 1, 2022 to coordinate with other relief organizations to help displaced Ukrainians and is also working with partners in Bratislava in Slovakia and in Moldova. 

 HIAS will receive 20% of each NFT sold.

 As we transition into the Metaverse, our goal is to share our unique and colorful poetry-art while raising money for this and other non-profits.

What is an NFT?

NFTs, also known as Non-Fungible Tokens, are one-of-a-kind digital items that are managed on the blockchain. Due to its non-fungibility, NFTs cannot be replaced with digital and fiat currencies since it is a unique token of its own value. These tokens work as digital certificates that are stored on a verified public database, known as the blockchain. Examples of NFTs include artwork, collectables, ownership certificates and more.
