We take great pleasure in announcing our Updated Introduction.

With our tentacles stronger and in evidence, with the evolution that we are having daily from our dedication to this beautiful project.

The ‘‘tentacles’’ that characterize the guidelines and values of our dao are:

Innovation, Education, Art, Technology, Collectivity, Research, Communication and Social.

EDUCATION: Here we understand education as the formation of artists in the functioning of NEAR. To train artists to have a broad understanding of how this community works, making them think about how their artistic work can dialogue with the community and forming networks that dialogue with each other and with the external community of NEAR.

RESEARCH: We value research as a form of autonomous education that extends the responsibility to create, develop, and discover to the researcher, thus generating a personal value as well, not only of learning, but of living with the community, with the near system, and strengthening the spirit of curiosity. And it is through research, and the presentation of new ideas, and new questions that a more decentralized and innovative society is built.

ART: Without it, what would we be? Or better yet, without them?

The arts are what they inspire, and convey, are what they explain, and leave us questioning as well. Art for sure is one of our strongest and main tentacles, we have in our dao, artists and art teachers as councils and members. And it is these people, us, who build these ideas, and values with the community, thinking art, living art is for sure a motto of the Octopode Dao. We prioritize living art.

COMMUNICATION: Communication is a must, we value communication, through marketing, through the arts, through the vast forms of expression.

To communicate is to inform.

TECHNOLOGY: We value the use of technologies for creation, education, art, innovation. Through them we can communicate, experience, transform realities, and create new ones.

INNOVATION: Without diversity there is no innovation. Let’s remember that this division values diverse projects that embrace these values, and that think about innovating, be it ideas or attitudes.

SOCIAL: Going beyond the virtual community. With the goal of bringing NEAR’s work to the public and to the field, Octopode dao intends to externalize its work to communities, peripheries, schools, community centers, NGOs, associations, collectives and other forms of social associations, so that the public outside NEAR has access to the making and artistic enjoyment, allowing them access to the arts developed by Octopode as well as knowledge of this virtual community.

COLLECTIVITY/COMMUNITY: Collectivity is synonymous of diversity, of communicating and sharing, of solving in a collective way. Our Dao values firm and strong foundations, so that we can flow without dismantling what we have built with so much dedication. Building is also collective, we can experience the individual, but without the collective experience it would be very complicated, even for us to exist. Communicating collectively, and finding ourselves in our differences, sharing is one of the most important goals of this dao, besides building collectively.

These 8 Tentacles that guide us, are 8 tentacles that made us enter in immersion in StartUP / business design training.

That allowed us to be invited by the City Hall of Santa Cruz do Sul to be part of the Development and Technology group. As well as renting and holding an event in one of the oldest cultural spaces in the city.

The Octopode Dao, has as main objectives: Art, Technology and Innovation. Provide training for artists, use technology to share information with the community, courses and training. To provide an innovative environment for the exchange of experiences. Besides sharing advertising and marketing content. Respecting the flow of the creative experience.

Each tentacle of the octopus is a part of a whole.

But beyond that. We are more than that.

We are A CULTURAL PRODUCER within Web3, we are a DAO that provides services within the forum, to other DAOs. But beyond that, we are in the world outside the internet, with a very beautiful range of work, which is to expand the importance of Technology and Art together, of culture and the right to citizenship.

We also aim at: Education, Research, Art, Communication, Technology, Innovation, Social and Collective/Community.

Our highlights within the ecosystem are part of proven leadership capabilities:

  • Delivery reputation (with real feedback)
  • Demonstrated active engagement and connection to the NEAR ecosystem
  • Governance structure of a responsible guild
  • Quantity and Quality of Support for specific Projects and initiatives within the Ecosystem
  • Potential to connect to other communities outside the NEAR Ecosystem
