[APPROVED] Event Cabeça na Lua

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.

Update on this:

We have been working since June on booking artists, scouting venues & sound system as well as getting visual artists on board.

The events will take in Kaya Shanti Café (18.9.) & Oficínas do Convento in Montemor-o-Novo (25.9.), lineup is booked and confirmed and social media will start rolling once the event are published this week.

Participating artists:
Madama
Puçanga
Shaka’s Lo-fi experience
smokedfalmon

We will therefore request the 73N split by @thefalmon & myself.

Given the current transition phase of using USD values instead of N, the fact that is currently changing its price rapidly and that both of the events will happen within the next 2 weeks, we have decided to convert the funds of 150N from NxM for the artist payment to guarantee the promised artist payment. The 150N will go to the muticollective.near wallet and will be converted to USDT so that the artists can then be paid out from there.

@madama Great, thank so much!
Please send your payout request for 20N to our DAO SputnikDAO and use the forum link where you added the example :slight_smile:

Same is valid for the payments for videographer, artist accomodation & licensing. This way, as N is currently relatively high, we will be able to use the muti funds to cover all the costs instead of requesting more funding from other DAOs.

Current state of N 14.9., 21:26 GMT, coingecko: 8.69$

Values to be converted through ref finance to nDai & sent to the muticollective.near wallet to then secure payouts at the events:

200 USD food/accomodation for artists
1659 USD Videography & editing for both events
48 USD Licensing
330 USD sound technicians for both events


2237 USD = 257.4 N
