- ZINE - Um poema para cada sereia | dudanaotemduvida.near erikamachado.near

Members: Duda Las Casas [dudanaotemduvida.near] and Erika Machado [erikamachado.near]

The proposal:
To make 3 zines with a selection of unpublished poems by 3 Portuguese language poets. The purpose of the zine “one poem for each mermaid” is to publish the content without any editorial or market concern. The idea of mermaids, because they inspire several poets and thinkers, with this idea of half woman and half fish, regardless of the country. But in this case they would be mermaids that express themselves in the Portuguese language. The most extensive references to mermaids are in the Odyssey, the Argonáutica, then Kafka, and today the mermaids still represent fantasy, the erotic, and the various possibilities that surround the theme in contemporary culture.
The idea is to make an independent publication as a means of divulging artistic, literary, musical, underground works, linked to social movements, arts, music, and cinema. It is not a book, it is not a magazine, it is not cordel literature, and it can be all of these at the same time.
The zines one poem for each mermaid will be used to disseminate poetry, illustrations, short stories, to address issues such as feminism, immigration, and erotic and underground poetry.
They are distributed in several cultural venues in the city and will be registered on a website and on CRIATURA&BERI’s Mintbase for those who want to access online.

Hello Criatura&beri

Since 4 of your July projects are under producing process, I suggest to pause this proposal to September period until you have a full report for that.

Thank you!

Hello William, how are you? :blush:

There are three projects that are still in progress, this is because they are more complex projects, two of videos and a workshop and as it was suggested to us by the Creatives moderators, we only start the project after they are approved, so sometimes we don’t have time to accomplish them within a month.

The projects and their timelines were posted and approved in the July proposal. I will detail a bit more about the projects that are in progress:

Visualizers EP End of Career | Tomaz Lenz - tomazlenz.near
STATUS: In production process. // The project has already been recorded, one daily at Fábrica Braço de Prata (Lisbon) and another one at Montanto forest (also in Lisbon), the material is in post production phase. The release will be phased, one visualizer at a time, as it will happen at the same time that the artist will release his singles.

LIVROFICINA | Palavracasa: the word as creative power | Giulia Frascino giuliafrascino.near
STATUS: In production process. // The workshop is being prepared by the artist. Announcement begins August 20. The date of the meeting is September 8th, at Tataoim (Lisbon).

Aprender a Recibir video clip | Mari Segura marisegura.near
STATUS: In production process. // This is our longest project, it will be a more complex and very important video clip for the artist. The project is in pre-production phase and is preparing to be recorded from september 10th to 20th, the release will be an october.

The audio book is already online!
AUDIOBOOK - Uma Noite no Meio - Poemas que fiz de ontem para hoje | Gabriela Abreu gabrielaabreu.near
STATUS: FINISHED! You can listen at

The projects are in progress and the artists are working around it. We decided to put a little more time into the projects because we realized that it was too tight to wait for the approval, to receive the money, and only then to start.

We are a new DAO, we are very committed to growing, learning and fostering the ecosystem here. In the August proposal we have collaborations with two DAOs, an open call, we are going to experiment with doing two events at the Near Hub (for a next step to create our own) and we have projects from amazing artists waiting for approval. A negative at this point will make us lose momentum in these first few months that are so important to establish, create and learn in here.

Thanks for the opportunity to give a more elaborate overview of the projects, we will do so in the next reports.

Thank you,
