The BlockChat is a project for an online talk show created, produced and presented by myself, Baga Defente, that aims to have informal friendly talks with artists from different areas and languages, part of the Near ecosystem. The main idea is to create a space for those artists to present a bit of him and herselves, talking about their personal journey, motivations, influences, creative process, how they joined Near Protocol and all that came along.
For this “first season”, I reached Gambiarra DAO to present a few of the many Brazilian artists part of this guild. The choice of this specific group to start the project is a direct consequence of the fact that it was through them that I first heard about and became part of the Near network. And Gambiarra was already thinking in more ways to promote their artists, so when I shared my initial thoughts with their marketing team (who’s offering conceptual, technical and operational support for this proposal), things made sense.
Furthermore, I still really don’t feel able to conduct a live interview in a language other than Portuguese, so I’m planning to extend this proposal to other Portuguese-speaking DAOS. But, training my English on chats and meetings, I believe that, if the project goes ahead, expanding to talks in English will be just a matter of time.
Production of the first two episodes of the talk show. Intending to be biweekly, the show will be broadcast live via NADA Studio Criativo’s YouTube channel, with approximately 45 minutes per transmission.
For the first episode, guest will be @Ghini, visual artist, poet, meta-architect and meta-curator of BrazucasNFT, which exhibited more than 120 Brazilian NFT artists; and FEMINU, an exhibition that presented 60 Brazilian cis, trans, non-binary and transvestite women artists, both showed at museum.xyz and Cryptovoxels.
The second one will still be selected and invited.
First (and obviously), the members of the Gambiarra community, as well as other Brazilian and Portuguese-speaking DAOs and communities in Near ecosystem (IncubadoraPT, nomadelabel, The Clan, CUDO, etc) and any interested external audience.
The fact of being live on YouTube can be a form to reach wider audiences from the guests’ networks, who have interest in understanding more about blockchains, web3 and all that, but don’t always try to get their hands dirty… so, using all available social profiles (DAOs, community members, host, guests, etc.) we’ll try to reach and bring these curious people closer to us.
The live episodes will also be recorded and permanently available to watch after the live streaming at NADA Studio Criativo’s YouTube channel. If we’re technically able to do that, we’ll streaming on both channels (NADA and “Hosting DAO”, in this case, Gambiarra). If not, the recorded version can be uploaded or shared on a playlist on hosting DAO channel.

Gambiarra DAO is a Brazilian NFT artists guild on Near formed in January, 2022, already with more than 120 artists.
I’m Baga Defente, poet, publisher and artist-etc. who works with several media, languages and supports, all of them connected through the poetics of chance. I’m also the founder and creative director of NADA∴Studio Criativo, a hybrid of multimedia creative studio with an independent micropublishing house. I started in NFTs in March, 2021 and joined Near through Gambiarra in late January.
Sarau Akangatu is a poetry gathering I created in 2018, with seven editions that took place in cafes, bars and plazas in Botucatu (SP, Brazil), until covid came in 2020, when it morphed into a live streaming event, with another seven editions until 2021. When moved from real-life to the virtual world, it turned into a kind of talk show, with Baga interviewing writers and then opening the mic for participants. Here’s one of my favs:
