Project Name: Mãe Solteira Records DAO development

Funding Period: April
Women, BIPOC & LGBTQIA+ communities have always been in a subaltern place in society. Mãe Solteira Records, as you come to know, is a label dedicated to the edition, agency and promotion of artists that belong to these communities.
After the first funding we managed to make history in the Portuguese electronic music scene as you can see in this article. We created wallets for 5 more people (artists and non-artists) and we already streamed a Live Set on Muti’s Near Hub space, made by N△N▽ at Memory Palace Launch Party, powered by NEAR.
In April, we have a lot of ideas to put into practice. Like the journalist said in the article, we are creating a safe space for women and LGBTQIA+ people in Portugal. We are changing the reality of the music, arts & entertainment environment in our country. Changing that reality also passes by bringing cryptocurrencies to these industries. In other news:
“This week happened in Lisbon the ‘Non Fungible Conference’, an event dedicated to NFTs. In this interview, the Portuguese lawyer Pedro Farrim said that ‘in my opinion, Portugal is, in fact, one excellent country to constitute or fixate societies and people to put into practice activities with virtual assets’… according to the expert, our country have not only professionals ‘well trained for technical development of these projects’, but willing to accept ‘more competitive salaries’ than other countries, and the Government is giving various incentives”.
Our plans for this month is to get ready to bring more art and culture to the streets and the virtual world, with a more professional care. We prepared a communication, design, and marketing makeover: we need press kits, images to promote the label, our artists and their work; and we need to promote our Radio Show at Radio Ophelia (@radioophelia.near) and our DJ mixes series called “Maga”.
For this, our request is:

Mãe Solteira Records presented, on International Women’s Day and on its first anniversary, a series of DJ Mixes called “Maga”, made by women, LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC DJs, as well as their designers. For the first mix we didn’t ask for fundings, although, this month, we would like to have some money to pay the DJ for playing, the designer for playing and also for streaming it on Near Hub!

Astrea is going to make a photoshoot to illustrate an interview they made for Parq with the artist Soluna. The photoshoot will be with clothes from Kahumbi, a black trans owned Lisbon based Sustainable Slow Fashion brand.
Mãe Solteira Records is going to promote this shoot and interview, and Parq will advertise NEAR, giving its credits for funding this session. The artists will also have to create a near wallet and receive the payment in NEAR, requesting it on our DAO.
|Kahumbi||2 looks + day of work = 108.28$|
|Production + food for the team||244.72$|
Astrea is developing a video game that will be the presentation of their new EP and wants to ask for some fundings as well to create this art piece. They’re also still thinking in a way where NEAR can be connected to this video-game. This project will be released this year.

Ivvi Romão is a model, dancer, producer and actress. It will also be safe to call her an activist, as she has been working hard to demystify the issue of transsexuality and does not intend to stop there!
Ivvi Romão launches a festival to bring together and celebrate the diversity of being who you are, defending and creating space for artists and the entire LGBTQIA+ community in the Lisbon scene, in a philanthropic event where all funds will be directed to institutions and community-oriented causes queer.
The second edition of FUND FEST will take place on May 7th, with the aim of raising funds for Ivvi Romão’s genital rectification surgery and Jaja Rolim’s (trans women actress and performer) Master Degree. Featuring Queer artists, FUND FEST #ivvi’sIIedition invites great personalities from the Lisbon scene to present themselves in what could be the first edition of an innovative event that mixes music, performances, visual arts and a lot of close-up.
The event will take place at Casa Independente and Mãe Solteira Records is promoting it. We’re asking NEAR fundings to promote the event (the artists will play for free, since it’s a donation event). We want to promote NEAR on this event, Astrea will be playing and will be talk to people about our currency and the stickers and the poster will have a QR code with a linktree link, where Ivvi will put NEAR on Sponsorship header, like Mãe Solteira has on it’s linktree (see the last links).

|139.68$||production (the team is composed by Ivvi Romão and Sofia Garrucho)|
Managing a team to make work happen like Mãe Solteira does is difficult, it requires time, patience and dedication. And, for that, we’re asking 3N for each member of the council.
|Council and production work and meetings|
|Astrea - 30$|
|Hugo - 30$|
|Kassia - 30$|
Total funding request in dollars: 4966.44$ = 308,7N
[conversation of dollar to NEAR made on Thursday 14th april 17:53 GMT]
After the approval, all payout proposals will be made on NEAR; members of the Mãe Solteira Records DAO council and members of the community will have the reference of 1N = $$16.09. We asked for a funding with a 5000$ limit because we’ve already worked with other DAOs, like Muti DAO and Gruta DAO.
I hope you like our monthly budget and agree with it! Have a nice month!
