Projects & Timelines:
Greetings, Creatives DAO!
We at EFAM are grateful for the continued support of our creative endeavors and on-the-ground work in West Oakland, CA.
Coming into summer, our focus has been on maintaining and bolstering our existing work. We continue to deepen relationship with folks on the Lakota rez in South Dakota, to distribute food & medicine to unhoused communities in the Bay Area, and to build our educational curriculum and capacity.
For July, we are asking for funding to continue to onboard members of our community into the NEAR ecosystem.
We had a very successful time in Feb & March creating NFTs of stories of our unhoused community members, and onboarding folks into NEAR. It has been incredible to bring those with minimal access to technology onto this platform. We would like funding to continue this work, nested within a series of community events.
We are planning to collaborate with People’s Community Medics (a local West Oakland grassroots collective that trains community members in basic emergency first aid skills to enable each person to be able to provide an immediate, first line of emergency medical care) to host a series of frontline medic workshops. This will be a 4 part series, happening in late July / into August, including :
- Fire safety and treating burns & providing fire extinguishers / fire extinguisher balls
- Wound care & supplies
- Tent repair & supplies
- Gunshot / knife trauma triage
Metrics for success
We will create 4 NFTs to each represent learnings taken from each workshop in an artful, beautiful way. This will help share knowledge about frontline medic topics, and raise awareness about the challenges the unhoused community faces.
We are expecting to have 15-20 participants each session, from the unhoused community as well as mutual aid volunteers showing up in service in these spaces.
We will onboard 1 unhoused leader each session into NEAR, as well as support People’s Community Medics in creating a DAO for NEAR.
