Previous report

Relevance and justification

The main objective of this set of projects is to produce creative products from the Academy that could be seen by a broad audience, like seminars about art, technology and related philosophical topics, books on Mintbase, broadcast talks about cryptoart, visual art created from philosophical texts, everything registered as NFTs on NEAR blockchain.

And bring academic philosophers to NEAR blockchain, and to take their knowledge to the community, through creative projects. This is important because art generally makes difficult contents accessible, so the production can be brought from the university and presented in an accessible form, like talks, interviews, 3d objects, memes, poetry, visual art. This is important for the community, because it expands the NEAR community of creatives to many professors and students that research artistic, cultural, and technological, and philosophical areas, which are important to the Creatives. And to create art from philosophical texts is a way to make people think about philosophical problems. We intend to connect the creative world of art with the world of philosophy, by expanding the ways we will present philosophy through art and by focusing our subject matter on cultural, artistic, and technological subjects.

Thank you dear Heverton and the Community Moderators for the positive feedback!!!


Thank you so much, Heverton, for your support. We already made our poll. :smiley:

Hey team,

Since this is a DAO, can we direct future funding proposals to a DAO wallet rather than a wallet owned by an individual?


Dear David,
Of course, we’ll do that next month! I really didn’t know that we could apply for the reward directly to the DAO wallet. I was finding it strange that the amount would go to the wallet of one of the councils and then be transferred to the DAO. Thanks so much for letting me know!
All the best!!!


Woooow! This is such awesome news! I like the idea of fundings going directly to the DAO instead of individuals receiving them. Thank you, @David_NEAR!
