muti will bridge the physical with the digital by organizing 2 physical music events in the nature of Portugal (Sertã & Montemor-o-Novo). The events will offer an immersive experience by creating an atmosphere in nature where the visitors are able to sit, listen and travel with their minds while diving into the ethereal sounds of the artists. The idea started during the last summer already, when the pandemic hit and the cultural scene and its participants suffered a lot due to cancelled cultural events.
Each event consists of 3 concerts and the second event will also include a workshop. In order to build a bridge with the digital realm we have a video report planned which is to be streamed afterwards in CV as well as the minting of NFTs for each artist which will grant access to unlockable content. All income through revenue from food and ticket sales will be given to the concert spaces given that they have been hugely affected by the pandemic as well.
The dates for the events are 18.&25.9.21.
The goal of this project is not only to support the artists directly but also to keep on incentivising culture in rural areas (especially during a pandemic) as well as to create collaborations within the NEAR ecosystem and to spread NEAR and its possibilities outside of big cities.
As we are currently in the transition of asking for USD instead of in N, the values in the proposal are partially still in N and the September values will be adjusted. Given that the events will happen outside of Lisbon, about 1-2h away in nature and transport and accommodation is needed and as muti aims to support artists and their craft, we would love to work with the value of 177 USD as a caché per artist without travel costs (which applies to one, Puçanga) and additional 59 USD for the travel costs from Lisbon to Montemor or Sertã. We’d also like to point out that, given that the pandemic is still very present and many venues are not able to offer full capacity and receive a lot of revenue, the entry/income of the events will fully go to those places. This just as an explanation for the mentioned values.
