** Some of the projects we designed during the hackthon were transformed because we learned that the onboarding process needs to be connected to a specific activity or bounty; therefore, instead of trying to create an enormous community of Portuguese-speaking artists and writers, we are more focused on creating the best artistic residencies we can: the community will arise naturally from that, and not the other way around.

** After learning a bit more about the monthly support on the Near forum, we have decided to update our roadmap.

** We realized the need to focus first on one of the projects, the Poliedro artist residency, and then move forward in the coming months with the artist residency project for writers, as it was better to concentrate efforts on one residency at a time.

** Doing the workshops 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’ve learned that the onboarding process is more effective once it is connected to an upcoming activity, bounty or project. People feel more motivated to understand the whole process

Next Steps:

*** Launching of the Artist Stipend Program

*** Preparation for organizing the residency program for writers

*** Launching of the firsts videos of ‘História de Bagagem’; 7th of august screening for the members of the dao, 14th of August officially posted on the youtube channel.
