Proponent: Metaverse DAO
NEAR account for payment: metaverse-dao.sputnik-dao.near
Project Timeline: January 5th – 30th
Objective: The main objective of this project is to build 2 events in a month, with art exhibition and music, with interviews with near artists. The idea is to use these events to make near artists to come to metaverse, to make metaverse people to know near artists, to build our NFT Collection (you can find the NFT Collection Project here), and to create a pool of near artists on metaverse which we can interview for the magazine (our project for the magazine this month is here).
Justification (benefits): The relevance of this project is to keep the hype around NEAR protocol, and to educate artists about the existence of NFT art life on metaverse. Beyond that, the project starts to build a system of visual art exhibitions, where artists will receive proof of attendance of the exhibition in a form of a Mintbase 3XR NFT. This is important because it uses 3XR gallery NFTs in a unusual way, that is good for the near artists’ Curriculum Vitae. This is the same reason why the interviews are important: because it is relevant to CV, but also because we are going to register important information about the artists that are not generally registered in a NFT mint; so people who sees the interview will be able to know more about near artists.
The project: We would have an art exhibition-party at each 15 days with music for the artists and collectors (so 2 exhibition-parties in a month), one for the artists to submit their work and to exhibit the works already submited to the exhibition; and another one for us to choose the works we are going to buy for our collection. We would post an invite on the forum and on telegram for people to submit, than we would prepare the place, make the marketing material, publicize on twitter, telegram and discord, get the musicians, host the parties, make wearable giveaways for afterparty, and buy the NFTs from the artists (buy NFTs and make the wearables are from other projects). Both events would allow for us to know the artists better and make the invites to the interviews, which happen after party. Then we get the data from the number os visitors and start accountability. To build both event, we would need to pay 1000 usd in near for the coordinator, 200 usd in near for 2 artists to perform (live or not), one in each event, and 250 usd in near to pay the professional to make flyers and edit videos for these events and for our DAO, in a general way, for a month, and 500 usd to pay the interviewer.
