- Spacesuit Apocalypse went down last night with the live performance from Drum Asia with roughly 25 attendees. Most have Near wallets, but those who didn’t will be receiving one via Neardrop links. The 2 artists who performed without wallets were onboarded and added to our growing music community on NEAR.
- With the Rare Vandal x Samtoshi Comic PFP Project the funding will cover 2 months of preparations, after which we will have the the layout for all the artwork, the storyline evolved and ready to compile into a website (or NearHub) format in August. Then launch in September. It’s our first PFP project for VanDAO, so this is going to become one of our primary vehicles toward sustainability for the DAO.
- Next week is our first Music NFT Workshop in Kuching, Malaysia. We expect 20+ participants and it’s a part of a larger event in collaboration with HAUS Kuching so there’s an opportunity to reach a wider audience. There will be another workshop in Langkawi focused on creative and music community there, I feel like people in the smaller towns and cities can benefit greatly. This is scheduled for the 27th June also with about 20 attendees.
- Working with Plantasia over the last few months to manage and operate the VanDAO Studio in Lisbon at Arroz Creativo we should be able to obtain additional metrics from them for June. They have been running livestreams via their Twitch and are onboarding DJs each week through the sessions. We are working toward a sustainable business model for the studio, which we hope to establish in September once upgrades are made to the space.
Additionally, I’ve been in touch with NEAR Malaysia and am planning more stuff with them in the coming months. We plan on working closely together in preparation for the the Malaysia Regional Hub.
Thank you for considering our June 2022 funding proposal and the work we have been doing to grow the NEAR creative ecosystem across the planet!
