Our Introduction:

We are starting our Dao, the Octopode Dao, inspired by our studio.
Our main goals are Art, Technology, and Innovation.
Provide training for artists, and use technology to share information with the community, courses, and experiences.
To provide an innovative environment for experience exchange.
Besides sharing advertising and marketing content.
Respecting the creative experience flow of each Dao member, and participants of the training. Committing ourselves to deadlines and the community

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

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

EDUCATION: Here we understand education as the training 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 artwork can dialogue with the community and form 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 inspire, transmit, explain, and leave us questioning as well. Art for sure is one of our strongest and main tentacles, we have in our day, 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 essential, we value communication, through marketing, through arts, and through the vast forms of expression. It is the transmission, sharing, and dissemination of all the artistic and educational work that the near system produces, spreading it both within the near ecosystem and externally to the community at large through the updated platforms and social media.

TECHNOLOGY: We value the use of technology for creation, education, art, and innovation. Through them we can communicate, experience, transform realities and create new perspectives of life from the artistic experience in the fruition of the works of the artists of the near projecting a new virtual artistic practice

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

SOCIAL: Go beyond the virtual community. To bring NEAR’s work to the public and 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 may have access to the making and artistic enjoyment, allowing them access to the arts developed by Octopode as well as knowledge of this virtual community. 10% of the value of all funds received from this date will be destined to a social portfolio, which every quarter will be withdrawn and will benefit families, NGOs, people in vulnerable situations, or social projects focused on art.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT THE 10% REMITTANCE WILL BE CHARGED TO EACH PROJECT AND COUNCIL, FROM THE FUND RECEIVED BY CREATIVES.

COLLECTIVITY/COMMUNICATION: Collectivity is synonymous with diversity, communicating and sharing, of solving collectively. Our Dao values firm and strong foundations, so that we can flow without dismantling what we have built with so much dedication. The 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, and sharing is one of the most important goals of this dao, besides building collectively.

Updated project schedule: We started the meetings for the month on the 1st, but we will be executing the projects as soon as they are approved at Creatives.

Council Matters / Administrative Affairs :

Organize Proposals and reports.
Meetings to organize Dao, and to create improvements.
Create, build and transform ideas.
Conduct training in Business Desing, StartUp Lean.
Collaborate with ideas, and improvements, and answer questions from participants.
Create Cfcs, conduct polls, etc.

We are looking for alternatives, professionalization, and referral to self-sustainability.

I as a participant in the octopode fellowship have only to thank all members for participating in this beautiful action.
I have learned many practical things and today I intend to pass on these lessons.

I am together with my partner structuring a proposal to honour the educational and social pillars of octopus by taking all the topics we have learned to new members. There will be the creation of an exhibition in cryptovoxels with more than 16 explanatory nfts in Portuguese so that there is accessibility for all Brazilian members and Portuguese speakers who are not fluent in English and we are also creating a website so that this information is eternalized and can be consulted at any time.

These ideas could only be materialized thanks to the inspiration and support that octopode can benefit us as students.

I thank each member of this DAO for the training opportunity that is so important in this medium of web3 and also for the support to allow us to evolve as members of NEAR, thus being able to grow along with the platform.

I participated as a fellow in the “Resarch at NEAR” project, and I can only thank the members of Octópode DAO. The experience was incredible, I loved the opportunity and I learned a lot, and I continue to learn. All projects are amazing!
As @Naju said, we will still hold a new event to share our learning with the community. I thought it was very important to continue the project, which, in addition to sharing knowledge, will also be able to invite new people to the community.
Thank you so much to everyone at Octopod!

Thank you for the thoughtful introduction to the near ecosystem that I received as an octopode scholar, long life to such relevant work is needed. I have been working with music for 14 years, and have always been autonomous in a country that does not value art and has its currency in constant devaluation (1 musical instrument that costs 500 usd costs 6x more in Brazil). The social work that octopode does is of great esteem, it has been complementing my income as a scholarship holder and warming up my dreams. Today I think that investing my time and energy in Near is more coherent than writing projects for my municipality, state or country.
Therefore, my sincere thanks.
