Project timeline:
Atelier Experiences is the first project that brings the feeling of actively participating in an atelier, in this case my atelier/studio.

This is the third edition of the project, we have a group in telegram (Telegram Web ) currently, and in the future I would like to expand to discord (

There will be 8 openings this month.

With the idea of each student producing a work thinking about the tentacles of our dao.

EDUCATION: Here we understand education as the formation of artists in the functioning of NEAR. To train artists to have a broad understanding of how this community works, making them think about how their artistic work can dialogue with the community and forming networks that dialogue with each other and with the external community of NEAR.
RESEARCH: We value research as a form of autonomous education that extends the responsibility to create, develop, and discover to the researcher, thus generating a personal value as well, not only of learning, but of living with the community, with the near system, and strengthening the spirit of curiosity. And it is through research, and the presentation of new ideas, and new questions that a more decentralized and innovative society is built.
ART: Without it, what would we be? Or better yet, without them?
The arts are what they inspire, and convey, are what they explain, and leave us questioning as well. Art for sure is one of our strongest and main tentacles, we have in our dao, artists and art teachers as councils and members. And it is these people, us, who build these ideas, and values with the community, thinking art, living art is for sure a motto of the Octopode Dao. We prioritize living art.
COMMUNICATION:Communication is a must, we value communication, through marketing, through the arts, through the vast forms of expression.
To communicate is to inform.
TECHNOLOGY: We value the use of technologies for creation, education, art, innovation. Through them we can communicate, experience, transform realities, and create new ones.
INNOVATION: Without diversity there is no innovation. Let’s remember that this division values diverse projects that embrace these values, and that think about innovating, be it ideas or attitudes.
SOCIAL: Going beyond the virtual community. With the goal of bringing NEAR’s work to the public and to the field, Octopode dao intends to externalize its work to communities, peripheries, schools, community centers, NGOs, associations, collectives and other forms of social associations, so that the public outside NEAR has access to the making and artistic enjoyment, allowing them access to the arts developed by Octopode as well as knowledge of this virtual community.
COLLECTIVITY/COLLECTIVITY: Collectivity is synonymous of diversity, of communicating and sharing, of solving in a collective way. Our Dao values firm and strong foundations, so that we can flow without dismantling what we have built with so much dedication. Building is also collective, we can experience the individual, but without the collective experience it would be very complicated, even for us to exist. Communicating collectively, and finding ourselves in our differences, sharing is one of the most important goals of this dao, besides building collectively.

yupi!! i liked this is :heart:


Hello everyone
I’m happy to show here an NFT I created in Photoshop with Natasha sharing her knowledge of the program, in past classes hosted by NEAR. I like her classes and the collection she shows, as well as books she shares. I am very happy to say that this is an idea that I wanted to do for more than 4 years, but I didn’t have the knowledge to do it and with the teacher’s knowledge I could do it in a short time, with digital art.
I will certainly be in the next classes to learn a little more and be able to create more works for my collection. I am very happy to enter this world of NFT’s and the Near world. Thank you very much for funding art and Brazilian artists.


Very good! Sharing knowledge is a great way to move forward! Congratulations on the 3rd edition of the project! :facepunch: :facepunch: :tada: :boom: :boom:
