[NOMADE LABEL DAO] - FUNDING PROPOSAL FOR [MARCH] - 
- BACKGROUND INFORMATION
- DAO introduction
Nomade Label is a transdisciplinary art DAO funded in December/2021 and is a collective of transdisciplinary artists mainly from Brazil, interested in creating through performance, music, poetry, dance, video art and other audio visual forms inside the Near Ecosystem, in dialogue with current technologies and web3, always open to new forms of experimenting.
We build an alternative cultural digital space within the web3 community, up-to date to the discussions, bringing a critical look to our artistic productions, in alignment with our decolonial, queer and anti-capacitist views.
During our first year of existence, NL DAO has supported more than 70 artists and collaborate in the foundation of 4 DAOs in the Near ecosystem.
- Why team is best for the funds
Our team has been active in web3 since 2021, and throughout this journey, we have developed artistic projects in various media types, including dance, music, visual arts, physical and telematic events both in the metaverse and IRL, and video series broadcast on different media.
Over the past year, Nomade Label has carried out more than 50 projects involving over 70 artists, with highlights including a scene in the film “A Alegria é a Prova dos Nove,” directed by Helena Ignez (in partnership with Filmes de Infiltração DAO) and the celebration of the hundredth anniversary of Gilberto Mendes, with events held in São Paulo and Santos.

- Genre - What category does your DAO fall under
Social impact through:
❂ physical presence on important crypto events to showcase Nomade Label art and spread what we have produced last year with crypto enthusiasts;
❂ virtual presence on NL TV with market support to reach a larger audience both to our artists and to Creatives initiatives and by consequence to Near ecosystem.
- Roadmap 2023
❂ Implementation of a plan for a greater digital presence on social media, preparing a wider public for the release of an album and promotion of in-person events. Boosting the collective portfolio through NL TV and NL zines, two expressions of the works done by the NL DAO team and its collection of artists, works, and interactions.
❂ Holding in-person events with the goal of hosting an art/dev hackathon in São Paulo by the end of the year.
❂ Having a representative from Nomade Label attend crypto events in Brazil (in-person) with the installation of the Nomade Totem, to intensify the network of contacts and promote DAO activities.
- DAO’s Milestones for proposal
First phase: (March - June) Activation of social media, promotion of completed and emerging works, audience building - NL zine, NL TV, IRL events, participation in crypto events in Brazil.
Second phase: (July - September) Launch of NL Records - singles and album - NL zine, NL TV, IRL events, product launches (digital platforms and NFTs), participation in crypto events in Brazil.
Third phase: (October - November) Creative Hackathon - Nomade Label’s IRL event promoting the meeting of creatives with developers to foster future transdisciplinary projects in Art and Technology.
- Social media strategies
Over the next two months, we will start implementing the project with a focus on reactivating our social media in a more organized way, hiring a qualified professional guidance to do so, who will initially manage our Instagram and Twitter accounts in partnership with Esther. In parallel, she will work on the new Label ID in conjunction with Lea and Gus. The team will also carry out archival work, better organizing all NL label productions and facilitating social media renewal. For this, we have the following content posting plan per week:
1 #tbt post that recalls an event/performance/NL production
1 post celebrating an NL artist and telling more about their specific artistic production
1 post in anticipation of the release of the album or zine
1 post advertising NL TV
1 open post, according to the need for that specific week
- NL ZINE
NL Zine is a prototype of a possible Magazine to be launched in the future by NL, with the intention of better organizing and publicizing DAO’s activities. They will be launched phygital: in NFT format, with QR Codes (leading to an accessible pdf, augmented reality, videos, etc.) and will also have their version for physical printing, with the aim of being a means of promoting the DAO at IRL events.
- NL RECS
Our collection counts with materials produced last year with funds from Nomade Label Dao: some projects and artists produced phonograms and video pieces that could already be circulating on streaming platforms. The idea is to promote releases of singles, EPs and compilations by artists such as G. F. Jacomel, Caleb, Lea Arafah, Gus Manute, Pinkalsky, and an album resulting from the Mobidance video performance cycle, with Ritamaria, Flygoa and L3VI4TA. In the third cycle of proposals, NL Recs will launch a collection with the label’s artists, curated by Blua Discórdia.
- NL TV
Reaffirming the need to better disseminate the content already generated by NL, we are launching NL TV, which will be shown once a week via Youtube and managed by Gus. In it, we will condense existing NL productions in a free and visually attractive way, as well as new content that was generated that week.
Based on the content generated by Esther for the NFT São Paulo event in 2022, we are creating a visual ID that refreshes the label’s vibe, in order to better represent our identity and arouse greater public interest.
- NL TOTEM
The NL Totem project is designed to promote NL DAO in different crypto events released in Brazil. As we did last year in NFT São Paulo, NL Totem is a vídeo installation that presents NL DAO, sharing our production in NEAR Ecosystem during the year of 2022. Besides the Totem, there will be some NL Phygital products to be sold in the event marketplace. The first phase of this project was already released, and consisted in researching events and contacting people to organize schedules. Our aim is to promote NL DAO and to maintain relations with the web3 community in Brazil, focusing on the NL Creative Hackathon, to be released in November. Three events will be selected for this first phase of the project. Here we present some links, from which we will select 3 to be releasing the NL Totem:
- 27 a 30/04
- Web Summit Rio 01/05 > 04/05
- rio crypto day 06/05
- upskilling 29/05 > 31/05
- fintech revolution 30/;05
- 10 e 11/06 BitSampa
