Unfortunately, our latest team member @Justine has already left the group as she is currently travelling and occupied with other commitments. We are therefore looking for other community members who would be interested in working with us and supporting us mainly with social media management.

Regardless, the DAO has been active and shooting several projects, even though the budget has only come in in the last week.

In order to clarify the payouts which have been mainly requested by LENS DAO members and to avoid further confusion:

We would like to emphasise once more that we see LENS DAO as a service provider for the community. If a community member or DAO is in need of a video/photography for a specific project, we are happy to support them and create high-quality footage of their project/creative idea. The community member or DAO would not necessarily have to pay for it as our DAO covers the budget for it, as our members will create the footage for them. We see our DAO as helping hands to support the creative community within NEAR and the showcasing of NEAR protocol.

Our DAO is open for more collaborations and also has a studio space available in Cacilhas, Lisbon, which can be used/rented for exhibitions and events. We are also planning on supporting upcoming talents with stipends to help them grow.

If you would like to get in touch with us, feel free to reach out and contact us through our telegram group :slight_smile:

Thank you.
