NSFW: Nouns Fair @ ETHBogota

Context

We are NounsDAO Amigos (https://twitter.com/NounsDAOAmigos). We are building a nounish community for all Spanish speakers (including LatAm, Spain and beyond). We’ve been proliferating the ⌐◨-◨ adding some spice and a pinch of Ñs.

We recently hosted the first edition of the Nouns Fair. An IRL fun experience aimed to proliferate Nouns at the ETHMexico hackathon. After attending ETHNewYork and hosting the Nouns Fair in Mexico, we’ve confirmed the importance of these kinds of events to put Nouns in the eyes of hundreds of people.

We accomplished our goals of growing our community and making people aware of Nouns. In a nutshell, this is what we accomplished:

  • Impacted around 580 builders
  • Grown our community on Twitter by 36% (still growing)
  • Nouns piñatas and noggles appearance in ETHMexico’s official recap reel
  • Nouns piñatas and noggles appearance in ETHMexico’s official photo book

And most importantly, we made the greatest nounish moment by smashing two nounish piñatas in the closing ceremony.

Nouns Fair @ETHBogota

Given the success of the Nouns Fair in Mexico, the ETH Global team invited NounsDAO Amigos to make a new edition this time at ETHBogotá, in Colombia. We believe it is important to keep having a presence at IRL events like this. As we saw in Mexico, this is a great environment for spreading the ⌐◨-◨ and growing our Spanish-speaker community.

Goals

  • Make a new amigo, Colombia
  • Onboard potential contributors
  • Put Nouns in the eyes of hundreds of builders

Details

The Nouns Fair will be a 3-day cultural experience focused on builders where they will be able to engage with others and learn about Nouns. Similar to the previous Nouns Fair, this activation will be a localized nounish experience with photo opportunities, games, merchandise, and an NFT gallery. The proliferation of culture á la nounish. The following are examples from what happened in Mexico, and what we’ll create for Colombia but

Photo-opportunity & noggles
A fully Nouns-branded photo station where attendees can take selfies, and full body photos will serve as a welcoming station. We want to create a photo set where people can feel nounish and share it on the internet. Of course, physical noggles are key.

Games

Two different games will be available at the place: foosball, and a local traditional game. We believe these games have a nounish feeling and will serve as an engagement factor. The local traditional game will be based on local traditions from Bogotá.

Merchandise

Pins, stickers, and T-shirts will be distributed as rewards for spending time and engaging with the Nouns Fair by playing games and taking photos.

NFT gallery

A 5 screens NFT gallery representing local artists and some nounish representatives.

Costs and execution

Given our past experiences and the recent Nouns Fair at ETHMexico, we came up with this budget to make it suitable for ETHBogota.

*Costs are approximate
**ETH/USD avg. price of 1,500 USD
***USD/COP avg. price of 4,370 COP

We are excited about this new opportunity to keep creating nounish experiences IRL that can be replicated in other countries. But most of all, to spread the ⌐◨-◨ in a fun way.

EDIT:
The operations cost in ETH is wrong. It should read 2.86666666 ETH instead.
So the total cost in ETH is 9.68333333

apologies

You guys did such an exceptional job with the firsts event I think that anything you do at scale will be spectacular. The entire setting and the vibe was incredibly NOUNish. Happy to have our NOGGLES there, I am going to try to secure a few more sets if i can, and if you would like we can get you some of our noggle pins too.
