[CLOSED] Book Fair - Brazil - Oct/Nov


Funding scheme: One-time


Hello @marketingdao-council

The Porto Alegre Book Fair, Latin America’s largest literary event, has been a consistent annual tradition since 1955, and it’s now preparing for its 69th edition in 2023. It’s renowned for its democratic approach and its dedication to promoting literacy and fostering reading enthusiasts. Moreover, the event’s cultural program is entirely free to attend.

In the previous year, the Fair attracted approximately 1.3 million visitors, showcasing its significance and popularity.

For 2023, the Fair is scheduled to run from October 27th to November 15th, spanning from 10 am to 8 pm daily. It offers a diverse program suitable for all audiences. The event features numerous writers, illustrators, storytellers, and other professionals. Activities include autograph sessions, panel discussions, workshops, lectures, and artistic presentations, among other engaging experiences.

The Project

Our exciting plans for the Fair involve collaborating with the event organizer to introduce innovative elements:

NFT Book Release: We intend to launch an NFT Book in partnership with a renowned writer. Currently, we are in the testing phase with platforms like Mintbase to ensure a seamless NFT experience.

All the buyers will receive a physical book and other experiences. These experiences will be possible only for NFT owners.

Educational Workshops: To familiarize attendees with NFTs and guide them on how to purchase the NFT Book, we will create a series of educational videos/lives and answer questions.

NFT Distribution: We aim to establish digital wallets and distribute NFTs utilizing Tekuno dapp. These NFTs will come with exciting prizes and gifts, adding an interactive and rewarding dimension to the Fair.

Physical Books Donation: As part of the gifts, we plan to donate books to people who create a wallet and claim our NFT. Some books are already purchased and others will be donated by writers of the event. We also plan to gift people with digital books.

We look forward to making these innovative contributions to the Porto Alegre Book Fair, enhancing the event’s offerings and embracing the evolving landscape of literature and technology.

Hi @jcsta – Thank you for submitting a proposal to the MDAO this month.

As of the close of the MDAO review period yesterday (9/15), this proposal has not received majority support from the MDAO council. This can be due to a number of factors (outstanding questions, not aligned with current MDAO KPIs, etc.), and we encourage you to reach out via Telegram with questions and consider resubmitting in the future. We are moving this proposal to closed.

We appreciate your participation in the NEAR ecosystem and look forward to future collaborations.

Hello @so608
