• Roadmap

Subject: Partnership Proposal - Filipino Artist Guild X CreativesDAO, 2023

We are writing to express our strong interest in partnering with the Creatives DAO for upcoming events. We the Filipino Artist Guild, aim to promote and empower local artists by leveraging the potential of blockchain technology and its impact on the creative industry.

Filipino Artist Guild is dedicated to supporting and nurturing the talents of Filipino artists from various disciplines. We are passionate about exploring innovative ways to elevate the visibility and recognition of our local artists in Near on the global stage.

The problem:

Small User Base: Compared to more established blockchains, Near Protocol’s user base is smaller here in the Philippines, which leads to reduced exposure and interaction with the art created and shared on the platform.
Competition from Established blockchains: Well-known centralized platforms dominate the creative industry, making it difficult for Near Protocol to attract artists who may be hesitant to shift from familiar platforms to a new web3 environment.
Accessibility Barriers: Some artists might face difficulties understanding and navigating Near Protocol’s technical aspects, including setting up digital wallets and engaging with smart contracts, minting their NFTs and etc.
Limited Awareness: Many artists and creatives may not be aware of the existence and potential of Near Protocol and its web3 ecosystem. This lack of awareness prevents them from exploring opportunities and benefits within the platform.

Value Proposition: The Filipino Artist Guild, in collaboration with Creatives DAO, will offer a unique and empowering ecosystem for Filipino artists to thrive in the web3 world. By addressing the challenges of a small user base, competition from established blockchains, accessibility barriers, and limited awareness, our value proposition aims to revolutionize and unlock opportunities for creatives in the Philippines.

Engagement Strategy:

To maximize our impact, we plan to conduct live demonstrations of the wallet creation with the help of NearDROP or Keypom, I am human verification, and we’ll also create a printout, and QR codes on how to be onboarded.

Interactive Art Installations - we will set up interactive art installations that showcase how to be onboarded to allow attendees to directly participate in creating digital art pieces using the platform, fostering a hands-on and immersive experience.

Social Media Engagement: Set up dedicated social media areas in the booth where attendees can create and share content related to the event. Encourage the use of event-specific hashtags # to create a buzz online and extend the event’s reach beyond the physical venue.

Branded Merchandise: Create a range of branded merchandise that includes items such as t-shirts, tote bags, stickers, and art prints featuring the Filipino Artist Guild’s logo, event branding, and artwork from participating artists. This merchandise will not only generate revenue but also serve as a marketing tool, allowing attendees to promote the Guild and the event beyond the venue.

QR Code Scavenger Hunt: Create a QR code scavenger hunt within the event premises. Place QR codes at various locations that lead to exclusive rewards related to Near such as POAPs or NFTs. This encourages exploration and active participation.

By implementing these engagement strategies, the Filipino Artist Guild can ensure an immersive, educational, and interactive experience for attendees at the event. This will not only increase awareness but also leave a lasting impression on artists, collectors, and industry stakeholders, driving adoption and excitement for the future of Near blockchain in the creative industry with the help of the Filipino Artist Guild.

To measure the success of the partnership and the effectiveness of the proposed strategies, the Filipino Artist Guild can track the following Key Performance Indicators (KPIs):

Number of Onboarded Artists/Individuals: The measure of the total number of wallets created, and people who join the “I-am-human” platform during the event. This metric reflects the success of attracting and onboarding new users to the Near Protocol ecosystem.

Social Media Engagement Metrics: To track the engagement on social media platforms (e.g., likes, shares, comments) using event-specific hashtags, showcasing the success of marketing efforts and spreading awareness about Near Protocol, CreativesDAO, and the Filipino Artist Guild.

Partnerships created: This is the number of new partnerships formed with other organizations or entities during the event. This KPI aims to highlight the ability to leverage existing collaborations to expand the network.

Merchandise Sales Revenue: The measure of the revenue generated from merchandise sales at the event. This metric evaluates the success of the sustainability aspect of the partnership.

Booth Activities:

During the event, our booth will host interactive displays, merchandise, presentations, and workshops to educate attendees about NEAR, CreativesDAO, Filipino Artist Guild, and “I-am-human” project. This blockchain-based initiative aims to empower artists by providing sufficient information on how they can be part of the Near community with the help of the Filipino Artist Guild.
