SOLD OUT & 4.68 ETH raised

Handwritten text, "The Project"

Our Spring Was Endless seeks to illuminate the nuances of a faraway life —its fondest moments and its darkest.

This collaboration combines poetry, hand-drawn illustrations, and Burmese culture to honor Myanmar’s 2021 Spring Revolution. Illustrator Ntxoo Tori Hong and poet Thet-Htar weave Thet-Htar’s experiences resisting the brutal military regime and Ntxoo’s witnessing as an ally from afar.

100% of the primary proceeds from this collection were donated to 501(c)(3) fiscally sponsored charity Karen Women’s Organization via Every.org. KWO provides emergency assistance to Indigenous women and children displaced by the military junta in Karen State, Myanmar.


Use art & blockchain technology to support women and children from Myanmar’s Karen State displaced by the military junta.


For the world to be free of fascism & for every individual to have sovereignty.

Ntxoo (‘un-Zong’) Tori Hong has been creating digital illustrations, murals, and community art spaces since 2017. As a queer, Hmong, and Korean American person, she brings her cultures into the next generations through art and technology.

Tweet from @immigrantkiddo that says, "Ntxoo has a heart of gold, strong beliefs that can change the world, and conviction that through art you can make a difference."

Ntxoo is currently a co-organizer of San Francisco Crypto Art and has showcased her work at three NFT NYC exhibitions in 2022: Sunrise Art Club, MetaPrideLand’s PrideFest, and Teia.Art’s after party.

Our Spring Was Endless will be Ntxoo’s genesis NFT collection.

Project Lead & Lead Artist

Thet-Htar is a Karen and Dawei woman poet and activist from Myanmar. Thet-Htar and Ntxoo have previously collaborated on art projects pre-Covid and pre-coup.

It is illegal and dangerous for Myanmar civilians to speak up against the military junta. For Thet-Htar’s safety, she is remaining undoxxed for this project. Our Spring Was Endless will be her first venture into Web3.

Poet & Audio Artist

Handwritten text, "FAQ's"

Can you tell me more about what's happening in Myanmar?

A map of Myanmar, a country in Southeast Asia bordering Bangladesh, India, China, Laos, and Thailand. It is next to the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea.

On February 1, 2021, the Myanmar military staged a coup before democratically elected officials would swear into duty. Woman president Aung San Suu Kyi was arrested and military rule was instated. Myanmar civilians took the streets to demand democracy, and the Spring Revolution bloomed.

Myanmar is one of the least democratic nations in the world, a place ruled by brutal military junta, and in which over 750,000 people have been displaced, one-fifth of which are Indigenous people from Myanmar’s Karen State.

What charity does this project benefit?

100% of the primary proceeds from this generative fundraiser went to emergency aid for displaced Karen women and children via 501(c)(3) fiscally sponsored charity Karen Women’s Organization, a woman’s community-based organization that provided emergency aid to 80,000+ displaced Karen people in 2021.

Our Spring Was Endless used Every.org’s services to transparently, directly & securely send cryptocurrency to the charity on the blockchain.

How many editions are there & how much did one cost?

200 random, unique and generative NFT editions @ 0.03 ETH each.

Each NFT will be generated upon minting and no two NFTs will be the same. There is 1 legendary edition, which is animated and features Thet-Htar reading her poetry.

100% of primary proceeds from this project were donated to Karen Women’s Organization via Every.org.
