[PROPOSAL] Near x Art April, May, June 2023

Title: [NEAR X ART] - FUNDING PROPOSAL FOR [April, may, june] - [2023]

Legal wrapper

NearXart is a decentralized autonomous organization that focuses on several initiatives that range from creating utility NFTs to empowering creatives and giving back to the community.

The organization started with the long-term vision of an art enthusiast and also an artist named Kareem.

He realized that there has been little coverage of local artists and their talent, and he believes with the emergence of blockchain, which has brought to life NFT, any local artist can advertise their talent out there. In a quest to solve this problem, Kareem set up NearXart as a channel to help creatives monetize their work and get the accolades they deserve.

Explain in detail about your DAO, what purpose it solves, what will the community be like and what are you trying to build.
Recognizing the default between blockchain and local artists, NearXart decides to pool its resources in order to foster a relationship between physical arts and the blockchain. This will allow physical art to be seen just like NFTs and can be purchased separately.

The services provided by nearXart to ensure that tangible art, local artists, and stunning local environmental pictures are delivered to the outside world are listed below.

NFT creation

NearXart uses its resources to create NFT both in physical form and also in digital form, which helps in the linking of physical art to NFT. They believe blockchain can be promoted more to the physical part of the arts in the form of physical NFT, while digital NFT will also be available. Digitalizing art that has been drawn in a physical form will make it more popular in the digital world.

Promotion on Blockchain

Since its founding, NearXart has put in a lot of effort to encourage local artists to use blockchain technology. They think that by doing this, local artists will be able to sell more of their works and be exposed to a wider audience online. Since digital artists and investors have been the main users of blockchain, the influx of local artists will strengthen it because there are more NFT investors online.

Charitable contribution

The organization also sees digitalization as a way of raising money through beautiful pictures of the local environment by listing them as NFT. This will also promote local photographers and their pictures, which will be minted as NFT, and, through that, raise money to support local environmental development.

Some of NearXart’s future projections include having a gallery that will include different works of art. People with any NFT from NearXart will have automatic access to this gallery. It will also possess a section for augmented reality.

Good evening! All events should be approved by NF events team first. Have you been informed about it by C DAO mods team?

Hi @Dacha. We at creatives Dao are aware of NF event team.

However, this is not just an “event” but a Creative workshop which is best to be reviewed by the creative Dao’s councils & community; with vast expertise and experience in the creative field.

Thank you for your concern.

Have a nice day!
