Project Presentation: IncubadoraPT DAO Roadmap by fred neves on Prezi Design
IncubadoraPT DAO (incubadorapt.sputnikdao.near) aims to create a laboratory for experimentation in arts + technology. It will be a platform to promote the collaboration between artists, academics, curators, creatives and cultural practitioners. Due to the increasing precarisation of the cultural sector and artistic labour, we intend to ideate emancipatory solutions and help reshape the traditional art ecosystem using blockchain and DeFi purposes.
What we want to do:
create an artist-run digital space
create a platform in which artists and developers from the Portuguese-speaking world can propose new ideas, meet and collaborate. Build a community around the NEAR ecosystem, where everyone can have a voice.
organize events, workshops, talks and online art residencies with mentorship, connecting curators/researchers and artists.
create opportunities for emerging artists and cultural practitioners.
operate as a gateway for Portuguese-speaker artists to enter the NEAR community, helping to clarify questions and possible difficulties.
connect with other DAOs to implement solutions
connect with other physical projects and spaces in order to organize physical events.
recruit talent through institutional connections (universities, observatories, research institutes, other ‘mainstream’ art organizations) and bring them to the NEAR ecosystem.
research, experiment and implement news ways of organizing artistic expressions, collaborative efforts and financial rewards for participation, enrollment, and creation of artistic endeavours.
promote collaboration between artists and DApp developers.
In order to:
- lay the foundations for spontaneous group collaborations between artists, researchers, curators, creatives and cultural practitioners.
- finding new ways of working and being paid for said work and respond to the increasing precarisation of cultural labour.
- help unfranchised artists bypass traditional institutions and find peers to collaborate with.
This DAO has currently 4 projects being developed:
an online artistic residence focused on VR and how can it enhance the work of non-VR artists. (link)
a website for VR related content, such as video, curatorial texts and any relevant content (something like Netflix on a small scale, or Ubuweb) (link)
an online platform for writers from the portuguese-speaking world, where they can meet, collaborate, create NFT’s, attend workshops and make creative proposals (link)
a video portrait NFT series featuring emigrants, political refugees, and other people strongly connected with political topics. (link)
Since we plan to move forward with all this projects (which will be developed by incoming members of our community), we need to implement an economic model to integrate these projects and all other who might be proposed in the future.
Therefore, we propose the following technical challenge:
create a DAO governance app, which will regulate all existing proposals and payouts, as well as any proposal to be made in the future by any member of the ecossystem.
use the NEAR token in all financial transactions.
establish a social token to allow members of the DAO to vote on new proposals; we want to reward usage, engagement and openness.
explore how SputnikDAO can be used to regulate and automate an entire ecosystem of creatives and manage intra-DAO proposals, as well as and inter-DAO collaboration.
(We are looking for help on this, come join us!)

Coletivo Tarimba is an art collective founded in Lisbon, in 2018, by eight women working in the arts and humanities. Tarimba was born from a desire to promote the work of young artists internationally and within the Portuguese contemporary art scene - curators, collectors and researchers. Without their own space, Tarimba works in partnership with alternative and institutional venues to promote exhibitions. Besides that, the collective has a social program to include the local community in their activities.
