#DAMswap is an attempt to create an event that goes cross chain. By design it is agnostic and encourages artists to create and collect on multiple chains and platforms.
#DAMswap builds upon community events that I helped to organize and participate within when Hic Et Nunc was first starting.
The art swaps that were staged then…
- Fueled the discovery of art
- Inspired people to start collecting
- Brought new people into the ecosystem
- Ultimately increased sales. In fact a recent swap on tezos brought in close to 200k in sales back in June.
It takes a community
For each #DAMswap we reach out to various organizations, marketplaces, technology companies, collectives as well as individual artists.
Work made during #DAMswap is curated and complied into an issue of DAM zine. This PDF version of the zine will be distributed for free and serves as an archive of the event and most importantly as a directory of artists. The zine provides twitter accounts for each artist.
Want to collaborate with us please DM @DAM_zine
Opportunities for collaboration
- host a space (before, during and/or after)
- share on social
- spotlight art during #DAMswap
- blog post if applicable
- help us reach artists
- do you know others who would be interested in helping to amplify this effort? Can you help with introductions?
- we’d like to try to track sales during #DAMswap. If you have thoughts on ways to do that or are interested in helping please let us know.
The next #DAMswap event will happen this Spring.
Stay tuned for more details.
This is an awesome initiative, how can I help support the effort?
DAM asks contributors to consider giving a small royalty to DAM's wallet when they mint. Some artists have made DAM a collaborator on pieces while others have tipped directly.
This all helps offset design, curation and logistics. Proceeds also go to collecting art for DAM’s permenat vault. It’s a give what you want or can. The amount is totally up to you and if you can't or don’t want to that's cool too.
