[APPROVED] Indian Indie Music Guild

Indian Indie Music Guild : Proposal + Community Weekly Update

Hey everyone, greetings from IIMG, hope all of you NEARians had a great week :slightly_smiling_face:

Here’s a link to our Introduction post :

We’re extending IIMG to be a healthy community to nurture emerging artists. Our vision includes educating artists about the Web3 ecosystem and about various aspects of the independent music industry, and encourage them to participate in a variety of performance-oriented online and offline events. We’ve planned artist mental health, marketing and artist resources workshops to help emerging artists smoothly navigate their way into the industry, along with providing them with gateways into the Web3 world.

Our team has spent this week on setting up the IIMG Council and building the social media pages for the guild.
