Hello, we are the CUDO DAO

We are the CUDO DAO - IMMIGRANT AUDIOVISUAL, made by Immigrants and designed to welcome immigrant professionals.
CUDO DAO was born from the relationship between the producers of the project “Luggage Stories” and Incubadora Pt DAO, born in the hackathon of May 2021. Seeing the possibility of combining the most diverse projects with the support of NEAR PROTOCOL, we envisioned the opportunity to create a DAO focused on audiovisual made by Brazilian immigrants living in Portugal and thought to welcome and produce audiovisual for immigrants and natives from all over the world.

At this moment we exist in association with DAO’s like Incubadora and are in a collaborative creation phase with MUTI. Our intention is, besides our own projects, to exist as an integral support to all DAO’s that need to transcribe their respective projects to the audiovisual universe in the Lisbon and Portugal areas, plus providing support for whoever, in the Near universe, passes through Lisbon and wishes to record their own activities.

After the first couple of months of working and learning inside the Incubadora DAO, we were encouraged to create our own DAO and both expand our community and provide the educational tools to establish a presence in the Near ecosystem. This is the first step in that direction :smiley:

Our Council is:

Born in Belo Horizonte, Talita Lima migrated to Lisbon in 2017, where she started to develop works focused on travel, fashion and behavior. Currently Talita Lima is developing a multiplatform storytelling project, taking on her side as a presenter in addition to that of a producer.

we are working on 4 projects at this time:


And this one had already started during the May Hachathon and been funded through the Incubadora DAO: https://gov.near.org/t/report-historia-de-bagagem-august

In the next moment we’ll work in this projects (to be ideated and developed during the next hackathon):

You don’t know Portugal

Video series focused on presenting a Portugal that is off the travel route of traditional tourists.

We want to not only create video content but establish partnerships between local vendors and the Near protocol, with the idea of creating an app allowing people to buy their products in N and Dai.

That would entail workshops for tourism professionals, plus a more commercial oriented effort.


Interview series with artists and other characters associated with the NEAR community.

News for Immigrants

A news online platform that serves as an aggregator of immigration-related news, plus a way of allowing foreign journalists to pursue their practice.

Come create a place to make amazing videos with us.
