Hello, here is a brief introduction about Artivist and me:
I have been a cultural project manager and consultant for over 15 years and have created and produced numerous projects and from the Call Artivist project, which I created and led on web2, I had the insight to power it through a web dapp3
This encouraged me to research blockchain further and I joined NEAR in early 2022 participating in Near University forums
In March 2022 I created Artivist DAO and in April we submitted our first proposal, kicking off our development venture.
It will be a dapp that will connect artists and activists to social and environmental organizations through the blockchain-based creative economy.
Our mission is to create a tool for independent artists and organizations to get resources for social and environmental awareness and transformation.
Artivist is a DAO that has myself, @carolbampa Carol, and Mariana Hartental @mhartenthal on its board and works in partnership with @Ledum Peter and DAO Omen, who collaborates on web development and marketing strategies.
|Vision | Mission | Values|
To foster a collaborative network of creative professionals and activists on Web3;
Expand funding opportunities for social and environmental organizations;
To increase visibility and spread awareness of social and environmental causes through a decentralized network;
Introduce the Web3 ecosystem, decentralized management, and blockchain-based monetization to grassroots organizations and NGOs.
About the Artivist council:
Carol Bampa - Project Manager
Cultural Manager and Cultural Project Consultant. Worked in the Secretariat of Culture of the State of São Paulo for four years. Produced three editions of the São Paulo Cultural Map Festival, two editions of the Caraguatatuba National Theater Festival, and the National Folklore Congress. Collaborated with the Gender and Ethnicity Chapters of the Pontos de Cultura Program of the State of São Paulo. Finalist of the first edition of the Festival of Ideas held by Ruth Cardoso Cultural Center with a recyclable waste project, CATA-LOGO. Participated in the foundation of the Fazenda Cachoeira Park Movement, which promotes social, educational and cultural activities related to environmental preservation and the historical heritage of the city of Vinhedo. Idealized, produced and managed the Paisagem Festival, an event for graphic arts and independent publications, started in 2017. Creator and manager of Respect Project - Space for the Empowerment of Immigrant Women and Artivist Call, a fundraising initiative for social causes.
Mariana Hartenthal - Cultural Researcher.
Museum specialist and curator with a PhD in Art History and a Master in Technology with over twenty years experience in the arts and culture sector in Brazil, USA, England, and now Portugal. Mariana loves meeting artists to learn about their practices and understand what makes them tick. Connecting art institutions and galleries to diverse communities is one of her passions, and she is fascinated with the intersections of art and technology, be it photography, architecture, or NFTs. Artivist’s mission of bringing together artists, activists, and independent social-environmental organizations through the creative economy aligns with her interests and professional background.
We have already started the first dev works and have also conducted a survey with digital artists. Besides the technical part of development, we will also continue to research non-governmental organizations and digital activism.
Artivist is at the beginning of its development journey and our challenge now is to share this construction, involving the community to collaborate either with their expectations, longings, socio-environmental causes as pilot campaigns and above all with the user experience.
For this we are also dedicating ourselves to the marketing roadmap, to create strategies for approaching and spreading our purposes.
By August 2022 we hope to have consistent metrics in our various points of contact with the project’s stakeholders.

Hello Creatives and all! I am so proud to be here.
My name is Windy. I’m 26 years old. I am a full-time freelance writer. I am a Near Fan and I am investing only in the Near Ecosystem.
Now I am proud to be a new member of Young Fresh Dao. Staying in Young Fresh Dao has helped me improve in all aspects and participate in many interesting activities.
I am glad to be here. Let me introduce myself a little.
My nickname is Peace. My major is mainly in Editing & Graphics. I’ve been having fun with art since I was a child, and since early 2022 I’ve popped into a Near hole.
I have onboarded into the Young Fresh Dao Community. I wanna contribute with my experience in art technology and education at Young Fresh Dao.
My name is Hawwal Ogungbadero. I am a musical artist, Motion graphic designer | Cartoonist | Filmmaker, illustrator and actor. You can read more about my acting career on My bio hub and on Google. Also some of my past achievements were shared in Blaqk Stereo Dao introductory post.
One word that describes me is “Genius” I am ever evolving, exploring and loaded with ideas from the multiverse.
In joined the Near community through C1 guild in April 2021 and became fully active in the community August of that same year.
Blaqk stereo as a Dao is dedicated to organizing events to draw in creatives from various fields like music, film, arts, and business exposing them to the vast opportunities in web3 and the Near protocol and we have the means to keep them updated through the creation of visual contents for the Near community.
Our vision is to draw creatives in from all fields and expose them to blockchain tech and the near protocol, giving them the best possible approach to web3 in respect to their craft. In other words we help creatives see their fullest potential in web3.

This is Christopher Michael (roadworks.near) from Arroz Criativo and LENS DAO (here’s our introduction).
Since I’ve been able to think, creativity has occupied the largest parts of my brain, but somehow I still managed to graduate from Humboldt University with a Masters degree in Innovations Management
I have a massive passion for design (running my own socks brand www.souvenirsthatdontsuck.pt), turntablism (check out my skills on YouTube under DJ Road Works) and last but not least photography and video for my production company CAMCAT.pt and (of course for LENS DAO). I’m a relatively sporty fellow (beachvolleyball, surfing & kite surfing) and father of an amazing 6yo.
web3 / crypto is relatively new for me. Approximately a year ago I was invited by muti DAO to shoot an aftermovie for a small festival and later live recordings of concerts. After a couple more video gigs for muti and other DAOs I was invited to become (to date) a council member of Arroz Criativo DAO by their community manager and started learning a lot about the NEAR ecosystem. I then co-founded LENS DAO, as we realized that there’s a need for footage of events, tutorials, art residencies, documentaries and alike, and after several collabs with other DAOs (Black Cat, Changa, Arroz, muti, Garden…) we would love to continue offering appealing visuals to more DAOs. Since we have only been existing for 2 months, we are only now (after a bumpy month full of Covid-cases inside and outside our team) starting to get our socials organized. For examples of our work, come visit us at our TG CHAT, where we post our latest works, earlier works, making-ofs and alike. Currently we are three council members at Arroz and three at LENS DAO.
My name is Klara Kopi (artistic name). I’m a multi artist (painting, 2D illustration, 3D modelling, Video, Sound Art, sculpture, bookbinding, textile art, NFTs and I’m a craftswoman), graduated in Arts, I’m also a singer, a metalsmith, an Interviewer/metaverse designer/council for the Metaverse DAO. I recently was invited to be in the council of Ina DAO (10 days ago) and I’m also a member of the council creating the LP DAO (new DAO, not active yet).I’m studying the crypto space since the beginning of 2021 and I’ve joined this community in Dec 2021.
I already did the KYC to receive the funding (last month).
Votes on Astro: Metaverse DAO (joined council on April: 108 votes), Ina DAO (joined council on May 31st: 2 votes).
Been doing the Meta Interviews with Klara Kopi project (I’ve created it in March, it’s on the 4th month now. I interview, edit, color correct, post and mint the interviews), having interviewed until now 9 very active members from NEAR community that have a project related to the metaverse: @chloe (marmaj Foundation), @GeminiRising (Ina DAO), @tabear (mutiDAO), @GeminiRising (Ina DAO), @tabear (mutiDAO), @clarian (Tamago, Tama Island DAO), @vandal (VanDAO, DAO Records), @electrobro (djDAO, Sine Wave Surfers), @decentricity (creator of Reality Chain), @zeitwarp (NEAR exclusive cryptoartist) and @microchipgnu (creator of 3XR Spaces). 10 videos recorded, 10 NFTs from them created, 1 3XR gallery created for the first 7 NFTs.

Successful Months of Social Media Management Links :
In addition to all this; I am a Visual Arts teacher, I am studying postgraduate studies in Afro-Brazilian and indigenous history and culture, I am a Cultural Producer, I have a municipal award in the Aldir Blanc Law for my cultural trajectory, I am a social educator, I have worked in the area of social projects for over 4 years old, I currently manage the marketing and advertising of a Brazilian Organic Fertilizer company and I also teach Visual Arts for 6-year-olds. I am also a painter, visionary artist, I opened the International Biennial of Visionary Art which I am currently representing at the Forró da Lua Cheia Festival in Altinópolis/SP.
Well, I’ve been working for over 4 years in the management of a women’s collective that organizes itself to combat violence against women.
I’m Brazilian, I grew up in the periphery, I studied in public school, I don’t speak English well, I’m learning.
But what I never lack is the will to work and to be able to help.
From the UK, living in Lisbon. First welcomed into the NEAR community at NEARCON 2021 through a collab with Arroz. Bringing the widely non crypto native open-air cinema audience here an on-ramp into the digital and NEAR world.
Twitter: None personal. This is Black Cat Cinema’s Twitter: @blackcatcinema1
Golden Blue DAO was founded by Zarya Austin-Fell, Mette Slot Johnsen and Tolga Arslan.
Tolga Arslan has made a presentation elsewhere in connection with the Jazz DAO and Zarya Austion-Fell will follow suit in response to this.
I’m Mette Slot Johnsen, I’m originally from Denmark, but have lived my whole adult life in the UK In Edinburgh and London. For the past two years I’ve lived in Lisbon, in Portugal.
I’m not a very visible person on social media, the more platforms the less connected I feel, so my work and research is focused more in person interactions first and digital after.
Ironically perhaps, I studied Media & Cultural Studies in Edinburgh, with a focus on popular music and cultural studies/ sociology. I wrote my dissertation on public funding of non-classical music in Denmark.
I have worked in culture settings my whole adult life, whether in museums, cinemas, music venues and big concert halls, music for health orientated organisations etc.
With my background in media & cultural studies, I am interested in maintaining a bigger picture view as I moved into working with Live music.
This has made me work for a lot of big and small non-profit music organisations in London, exploring PR, fundraising, artist liaison, programming, producing and in between a lot of general admin work. In addition I have worked - and still do - extensively with independent live booking agencies and aspects of music festival production.
I spent the pandemic investigating better collaborative practices in cultural production and studying cultural commons as part of EU funded research projects and a summer course at the Central European University.
I was a newcomer to all things web3/ crypto/ blockchain until a year ago.
I was introduced to NEAR and NFTs etc as a resident at Arroz Studios in Lisbon, and was part of the collective effort to produce the 1st physical version of Rare Effects, I subsequently joined the Arroz Criativo DAO.
I have an interest in commons as a new economic system and as such collectives/ co-ops etc have a natural attraction to me. This is where my interest lies with Web3 and it’s possibilities of financial independence and disconnection from established systems of ownership and funding.
Our highlight is of course Isodea Festival. With Golden Blue DAO and the funding from NEAR we were able to make Isodea Festival - which was founded in August 2021 by Zarya Ausin-Fell and myself - a much more ambitious project from which we will continue to work to put a spotlight on artists and areas not very well represented in live music.
We are aware that our direct contribution is a very small one at the moment, but the indirect one of inviting 26 artists and 10 or so crew to be part of creating the festival funded by NEAR, adding to that the social media posts, press and physical audience of around 150… We think that’s palpable and will start conversations.
Organic, off line conversations in existing scenes and environments will slowly generate a long lasting investment of time and effort into the ecosystem I think, but also to take the ecosystem offline and take into the world as a new ubiquitous technology and funding and co-creating methodology.
We will ramp up our activities across Telegram and social media in addition to starting more in person conversations about future projects.
Communication has always been part of my professional path, either as a reporter, in Brazil, United States and Portugal, or as a consultant for musicians, artists, writers and theater companies. As Community Manager and Council Member of Arroz Estúdios, I am happy to apply what I have learned in my 20-year journalistic career.
I have a degree in journalism from the Federal University of Pernambuco, with a focus on the international coverage of technology and culture news. I studied branding, social networks and digital media, with researchers such as professor Ramón Salaverría, from the University of Navarra (Spain).
In Portugal, I worked for the Notícias Ao Minuto website, and was the PR manager at Fábrica Braço de Prata, in Marvila. After studying publishing at Universidade Nova de Lisboa, I also devote some time to help Brazilian women to publish their first books.
I’m Prthiv Ratnam; from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. My friends call me Pip!
I produce music and perform under the alias Netunoblu and have been working in the Malaysian music industry as a freelance audio engineer and event organizer since 2016. I am a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and DJ with a deep appreciation of any form of art or creativity. I am also a self-learning multimedia artist and have recently minted some of my 2D art via my paras!
In late 2020 I began interacting with @vandal and DAORecords via their pop-up events in Cryptovoxels and that was the doorway to my journey into crytpo-based creative ecosystems; eventually finding the NEAR Protocol and this wonderful community!
Creation of sustainable interoperable systems, that free humans to do things they love doing
We all have to do things for money that we don’t like. My goal in life is to reduce time spent on doing the unnecessaries, by creating systems that
Connect clients and service providers, so you don’t have to keep looking for work
are community owned and have ethical incentive structures
Allow for automated work flow and revenue creation
Buy you your time back
My name is Sahil Massey
In the past 17 years I’ve worked in various capacities with multiple MNCs and startups in marketing, sales, growth hacking and customer service and senior management.
I was always interested in automated workflows and business models that buy me my time back and generate value for buyers and sellers. So I started my entrepreneurial journey in 2018.
I’ve been learning and spending time on creation of self sustainable models and building ecosystems which have a lasting impact and generate passive streams of income, so that the creatives can focus on creativity.
It’s my dream and mission to build sustainable and meaningful DAOs for NEAR ecosystem that provide value too the entire community and outside in life as well.
