Development and Launch of the Catalogue/edition of the projects develop during the residency
** Doing the workshops and introductory sessions was very effective for onboarding new people in our projects.
** The importance of adapting the roadmap itself to improve the development of projects that are being prepared.
** We understand the importance of doing physical gatherings and events when dealing with art and artists, so we are looking for a physical space in Lisbon to showcase Poliedro artists and to launch our catalogue
*** We are talking to an artist to help us think about ways of expanding what is possible regarding digital artistic catalogues, how they can interact with NFTs and other questions. We are planning 3 kinds of catalogue, purely analogic, purely digital (a simple NFT) and a mix.
*** We are planning a collaboration with a Brazilian podcast creator about web3 and the work Incubadora has been doing.
*** We are having multiple discussions about becoming more financially sustainable, and not be so grant dependent; for now, expanding the Mintbase store reach and creating the best POLIEDRO Catalogue we can are the first steps.
*** We have a meeting with an academic researcher and artist to discuss the possibility of exhibiting POLIEDRO in her studio (september 1st).
*** In the next couple of months, starting with the creation of the Incubadora DAO website, we want to increase the openness of our communication channels. We want to use less of our Discord channel and use the Near forum as much as we can for the bounties, project fundings and all matters regarding collaborating with the community, leaving the social media channels (TG, instagram, twitter) for our communication with the wider community of artists and creatives.
