Project Name: OCTÓPODE DAO
Project Status: IN PROCESS
Destination Address : octopode-dao.sputnik-dao.near
Total amount of funding requested: 2000 USD in Near
Funding Period : April
We are starting our Dao, the Octópode Dao, inspired by our studio.
Our main goals are Art, Technology and Innovation.
Provide training for artists, use technology to share information with the community, courses and experiences.
To provide innovative environment for experience exchange.
Besides sharing advertising and marketing content.
Respecting the creative experience flow of each Dao member, and participants of the trainings. Committing ourselves to deadlines and the community
Objective: We will use this month to organize the dao, and also to publicize it.
And nothing could be more fair than to start our plan with, besides meetings, a bounty, an exhibition and a class proposal.
Performing these activities will generate engagement from the community, which will benefit from very relevant moments and experiences.
All the proposed activities are synchronized with our general principles and objectives as a DAO. Our “tentacles”.
The ‘‘tentacles’’ that characterize the guidelines and values of our dao are:
Innovation, Education, Art, Technology, Collectivity, Research, Communication and Social.
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/COMMUNICATION: 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.
Updated project schedule : We started the meetings of the month on the 1st, but we will be executing the projects from the 7th, where we are talking to people about the projects.
