I think it is a good to start building together what do we think about values, and what is important to the creative’s community in this ecosystem.
I will give my 3 words:
interculturality - as we are people from different parts of the world, interculturality is fundamental to understand our different contexts, and also to create a kind of permeability between us, an opened ear so we can be able to listen to each other through different perspectives
diversity - maybe this word doesn’t need much explanation, and of course it is linked to the first word. Anyway, I will write a little about it - how important is to preserve diversity as an important human value - do we want to be the same? I don’t think so - diversity makes us grow as humans, it moves us from where we are, and points to a more interesting and human ecosystem, it points towards a love ambience - and love as a kind of living where people can preserve their identities (just to resume)
decoloniality - this is for me the most important word, that connects all the others; as we come from different places, and have different stories, we need to understand the importance to think the world we are living, upon decolonial patches. It is fundamental to understand diversity and interculturality - and so inclusion, community, and other important values that comes inside these 3
so, these are my contributions
thank you for the space
15-page piece with 5 people across 3 DAOs – #1 for 5 profiles in 2022 that we hope to do) – Launches in October (#1 portrait is Lagos)
Cultivated relationship with designers in the region for this piece (paid him for 1/2 of work) – he is creating the layout and THAT will be the NFT – so the design is that $500 in budget.
NFT strategies for Portrait and NFT Film concepts developed – will share these ideas with the community to inform deeper thinking about how to collaborate.
Identified great talent in Reespect (Just met her last month) and brought her into council (because she has the skills for our needs and trust her)
Brought Reespect on to develop PR and Marketing plan (with me) to for pre-announcement, launch, and post-launch of “Portrait of the Artists” #1 Lagos – the key to this is identifying and working with marketing DAOs OUTSIDE creatives to ensure we are able to collaborate with our content
Research and explore the next profile – this may be Brazil to share on the ground/field research reL how artists are informing education – this focuses on creative innovation and content FOR educators with the goal of onboarding them for new content for collaborations
10-page Slide deck in process for the growth of Rising DAO – needed to engage (because we’re new here) to ensure we understood the goals of the platform, the people, and the governance movement
Currently developing MEDIA project where we explore (globally, over the next year) ways to document how lives of artists, communities, and technology itself are emerging to reshape cultures because of 1.) the power of the blockchain and NEAR 2.) how onboarding of artists is changing their lives 3.) how NEAR is the leader in this space.
Big picture - we want to grow the Members to be researchers, writers, and media makers in the DAO. We are NOT rushing because we need a level of experience to execute this – but we are getting to know wonderful people.
Why you feel I knew anyone outside of 1 person in the Kin DAO is beyond me. I have been working in my space a LONG time and know talent when I see it. So, it’s been easy to see that Reespect has talent and brings a lot for this specific project – about Lagos, and her ability to think strategically about marketing and PR is a natural gift. So, I don’t see the issue.
Finally, Rising DAO is legally registered under our LLC which is from Rising Partners. Rising Partners is a consulting agency for the Creative Economy. We have a church and state model, where our work within NEAR focuses only on what the needs are for the blockchain, and with those on the blockchain. The company deals IRL with cultural institutions and technology companies that want to engage with or strengthen their understanding of creators, creatives and artists.
Reespect for help with final review of 15-page piece
Reepsect for plan for PR / Marketing
2000 for set up and all the work to develop the DAO
1200 is directly FROM the creatives DAO fund – that’s the exact number
Question – are you an expert in Content and Marketing? Do you understand the value of our time?
We didn’t ask you came in our community with your “worth time”. Near is community for enthusiasts, not for people who came to get money here. If you want to help us, do it for free or continue serve for web2 companies.
Great choose of the artist who have nothing mutual with near
Just after listening back on yesterday’s community call and wanted to add in some words that come to mind when ideating some sort of tagline, plus some AI-generated art using those words to initiate some potential visuals to go with it:
Diversity, Collaboration, Creativity, Innovation.
There are a few things which strike me as important to manage:
Integrating new people into ecosystem whilst managing web 2.0 reputation based rent seeking behavior to a minimal level
Avoid individuals who seem authoritative to confidence others into giving them authority in ecosystem and back-filling with their friends / allies whilst crowding out others.
A pseudonymous system with an equitable process to build trust would be preferable i.e. take away conditioning on individual’s parameters to judge the person’s contribution to good decision making. People from big-name institutions are generally seen as good but in last decade there is a trend of grifters from same said institutions milking influence and money in this space because they appear competent and authoritative.
