Welcome to
Brown Baddies

A unique collection pioneering South Asian Representation in NFTs

Our Artist, Ananya's Story
As a young child, I absolutely loved dressing up in my mum’s sarees, blasting loud Hindi music and watching cult Bollywood films with my true love at the time, Shah Rukh Khan.

However, growing up, I was embarrassed about being openly proud of my culture, and became extremely dissociated from my heritage and background as a Punjabi woman. I remember never allowing my mum to give me ethnic foods for school lunches, when deep down I preferred the curry 100x more than any peanut butter sandwich.

Brown Baddies are the characters I wish I could have seen on Sunday morning television when I was ten years old. They are the representation I didn't see when I first joined the web3 space.

I want women of colour, and South Asian women in particular, to feel like they can be active decision makers in web3, and this collection is one small step to help drive that.
Roadmap
While this Roadmap is a guideline for our plans regarding our first phase, our ultimate goal is to help women/non-binary people of colour take up space in web3 and will be iterated on as we grow. Some of our long term highlights to accomplish over the next years include:

1. Acquiring a metaverse plot for South Asians in web3
2. Supporting not-for-profits that combat gender-based violence in South Asia
3. Committing to creating a collection for Brown boys #Brownmunde
4. Establishing clubs and a global directory of businesses owned by South Asian women
