[Introduction] VN Artists DAO

Hello NEARians!

My name is William X, a Vietnamese crypto enthusiast in the NEAR ecosystem. Having worked around with the Open Web Sandbox since Oct 2021, with my understanding of the ecosystem & the passion to build a strong community, I would like to promote NEAR ecosystem deeper into Vietnamese community. My experience hosting & organizing events allows me to connect with amazing Vietnamese talents & artists. Together with like-minded people, we want to introduce Vietnamese artists to the ecosystem, educate & accompany them in their journey to the crypto space of Near Protocol.

DAO Name: VN Artists DAO (VAD)

Council: @williamx @IamnotRapper @Mer

Background:

@williamx I have worked as the OWS regional moderator, then project manager & currently a council of Community DAO. My main duty was taking care of OWS’s Vietnamese community, connecting with guilds/projects to establish partnerships, recruiting contributors & taking care of OWS’s ongoing projects. Currently, I also join hands to help with the initiative of community DAO. Besides my on-chain job, I’m also an MC & host for different talk shows & events.

@IamnotRapper A Designer & Social media manager, he’ll be in charge of running campaigns, moderating social channels, hosting competition & helping DAO members with any questions they may face during the onboarding journey.

@Mer A singer & songwriter. She’s a young talented artist following pop mainstream.

She will be helping in promotional campaigns, create social impacts & will be an example of an artist who gets onboard, works & produces in this dynamic ecosystem.

Location: Vietnam

Vision: A hub for Vietnamese artists & creative enthusiasts in the Near Ecosystem. Where artists actively onboard fellow artists, mentor & share value. Why DAO? We want every member to actively takes part in DAOcisions: selecting process for artworks, contests, voting for artist of the month, making proposals & participating in bounty on DAO.

Mission: To onboard Vietnamese artists & creative enthusiasts. Educate & accompany them to get familiar to crypto space by using different NFT Dapps & tools. Our ultimate mission is to introduce Near Ecosystem deeper to Vietnamese art-lover community & help artists to grow their own community after graduation.

Road map: For the month of April:

  • Kick starts by an AMA with NEAR Vietnam Guild, open call for Vietnamese Artists

  • Weekly Community Call: DAO activities introduce & personal sessions to onboard new members while we’re preparing starter kits for future use. (We will reduce to 2 calls/month upon the completion of Vietnamese onboarding materials for artists)

  • Produce starter kits (guidelines & onboarding materials) for Artists in Vietnamese (Detail plan TBA with our funding proposal)

  • Every month we run a Featuring Collection of that month: Instead of buying back NFT by the council, the Artists community will make DAOcision to vote for the 3 best artworks to be rewarded Featured Artwork of the month

  • Simple verification implement: Artists or creative enthusiasts will need to create a brief introduction by commenting on Forum before proposing to be added to DAO

Further roadmap TBD with our initial community as a DAO

Acknowledgement:

We would like to express our special thanks to @FritzWorm for your consultation & motivation. Before this introduction is written, such encouragement & guideline is very important for us to make a decision to establish a DAO.

Sincere gratitude to @Ligaya, founder of #filipino-artist-dao for your sharing & help. Your practical experience working in the ecosystem would be a good example for us to continue growing our community. We’ll definitely look for a cross guild cooperation for Artists this year, not only with FAG but also with other DAOs/Guilds in the ecosystem.

We look forward to the development of the Vietnamese creative community. We do hope with this introduction; we can receive more guidelines & feedback from @creativesdao-mods to help us shape a stronger creative community. Thank you so much for reading.

Thank you for the introduction, looks good. I am wondering if this would also fit in the community vertical though? @jlwaugh ?

Thank you so much for your feedback, I just wondering what is the condition to get a tag on the forum? As I see DAOs/Guilds need to separate proposals for each smaller project. We’re now in the planning phase and will reach creatives soon to kick off our activities.

I just created the tag for you :slight_smile:
