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.

Podcast #03

@juliamorelli55sp invites Zopelar

Pure alchemy, this is what Pedro Zopelar does behind his machines, generating unstoppable motion and emotion on the dancefloor. While his music is conveyed through streams of pulsating energy it also glides through layers of beautiful sounds, carrying us

irresistibly within it.

This garnered him a reputation as a prolific remixer and producer amongst his peers and the wider public, as his ability to conjure enthralling musical moments is the result of trained hands and educated ears that show their dexterity and sensibility whenever he composes and synthesizes the most basic elements of his creations.

Such an approach has put h

Efforts born out of a relentless will to create and have taken him across the globe, from Tokyo for the Red Bull Music Academy, to the stage of festivals such as Sónar and Dekmantel, throughout some of the finest venues in Brazil, as well as at the helm of Sao Paulo nocturnal avant-garde as one of the artists energizing the ODD collective.

4. MOTHERING [PROPOSAL]

Goal:

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

Mothering/ Mae

London: 25 of June - 06 of August 2022

5. [PROPOSAL] SOCIAL NETWORKS AND PUBLIC RELATIONS

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.

PR agency plan June - a light start working only with Ressonancia podcasts in order to understand possibilities and results and then increase PR efforts in July and August for the 3 ongoing projects: Ressonancia / Memento and Mothering.

PR Agency - Lema

Hello Hello, just to confirm because could not found it on your introduction or report.

This is your DAO?

Hello all! Besides potentially requesting marketing funding from Marketing DAO rather than Creatives, your proposal looks great so far! As we transition as a community and prepare ourselves to give bigger reports back to NEAR Foundation for the metrics of our Creatives DAO Community, we would like to ask if you could add in a section at the end of your proposal around your expected metrics for success. This can be things likes number of participants expected, what outcomes, which/how many products, etc. Basically consolidating your outcomes into metrics. This will make it easier to relate to those number when you make your next report and when we make a larger report for the community as a whole.

Thank you so much for adding this info! Would you be able to also add the metrics of your creative projects as well outside of the Marketing aspects? Metrics such as estimated amount of NFTs to be minted, how many individuals onboard, how many exhibition platforms created, amount of copies of products produced, amount of podcasts etc.

Hi @adrianseneca just added metrics in each creative project, please let me know if was clear or if I should amend anything.
Thanks a lot

I am happy to say that this proposal follows the Creatives DAO Guidelines, so it is approved by the Community Moderators. Please create a poll on the Creatives DAO Astrodao, so that the council can vote.
