Our Introductory post:

About 55SP

55SP is a multidisciplinary project whose principal objective is to spread contemporary art, fostering new collectors and artistic production through independent projects, with an experimental character and a belief in art as a transformation tool. We organize exhibitions, workshops, talks and online art residencies with mentorship, connecting curators/researchers and artists, in order to create bridges and intersections between different areas of art along with visual art.

In April we want to structure the DAO, create the gallery in MintBase and, in parallel, continue the actions mentioned in the introductory post, such as Ressonância and Bruno Baptistelli.

We believe that we will be able to start an engagement between the Near ecosystem and important cultural agents, reaching different platforms and channels promoting podcasts, virtual catalog and already preparing the artist circuit for Mintbase.

In the month of July, we would like to research new Portuguese artists, in order to exchange with different countries of the same language. Even not recording new episodes this month we are going to be able to keep the rhythm biweekly. This month is going to be to organize a program for the next semester,

Real change can only emerge from the exercise of imagining a different world. “Mothering” is an invitation to dream, negotiate and expand the horizons of the possible. We aim to address the institutional and systemic constraints of motherhood, so we can look at mothering in its full potential.

Mothering is an exhibition and ongoing project, draws on collectivity and creativity as paths towards improving life in our community and beyond, as such we have reached out to partners and collaborators from multiple fields, beyond the visual arts, to participate in the public programme (dance, behaviour science, lactation) and publication (literature).

This is a 55SP projetc in partnership with Kupfer Project and will take place

Impact and value:

We expect to grow 55SP’s followers having as its central objective to publicize the podcasts, with relevant and free research content, we believe that hiring a public relations agency that will take the podcasts to important communication vehicles plus the instagram ads, will generate engagement, growth in the number of followers of both the instagram itself and the podcasts on their respective platforms and with it aggregating these values and concepts to the Near community.

After June working on preparing press releases and media kits + meetings to understand better the 2 ongoing projects to work July and August: Ressonancia Podcasts and Mothering

PR Agency - Lema @AgLema


July and August are going to be

Metrics for measuring success:

  • In the last month we had growth in the accounts reached, accounts engaged and total followers compared to the last month. We have progressively increased our reach and we intend to continue at this pace of growth.

  • In May we grew +0,5% in accounts reached, 16.4% in terms of interaction and 0.3% in number of followers.
  • This month we reach +815% highlighting the importance of funding and community Near.
  • In July we plan to keep up the growth with ads, Pr and also because we have 2 new projects with lots of potential on the way.
  • We are publicizing our partnership with near on our networks and tagging all our posts with #nearprotocol and #near
  • We also mention Near support at podcast description in all platforms.

Estimated timeline and achievement milestones:

  • Produce 2 weekly posts on Instagram
  • Produce 10 weekly stories
  • Weekly boosts with investments of 20 to 25 USD per week. We believe it is necessary to invest a little more in boosting some posts on Instagram to continue to reach more people and interactions. This month we are going to focus on boosting Ressonância Podcasts Posts and Ressonancia Reels.

Hi @kc_sollano thanks for your feedback!
Actually we are quite new here and the council is only 3 of us, @dani that has already another DAO, @giolangone and me @juliamorelli55sp. As it is quite a lot of work, we added this budget for the one in charge for reports and requests, is usually a budget that is either for me or @giolangone, or we split.
Let me know how does it sounds and if is in the guidelines, otherwise we can rethink it.

@juliamorelli55sp thanks for the insight, makes sense to divide up by tasks done for some DAOs, and I’m glad to see the explanation. I’m happy to say that this proposal follows the Creatives DAO Guidelines, and it is approved by the Community Moderators. Please create a poll on the Creatives DAO Astrodao , so that the council can vote. When and if the vote of the council is ‘yes’, approach NF for your payout proposal, following this guideline: [New Process] Community Payouts .


Thanks a lot! Very glad to hear! Have a great week.
