Hello all, I’m Adrienne Gates, founder of Stand Up Art. I’ve produced events including one of the main attractions at a convention called DesignerCon for over 15 years and I think Nouns would benefit from having a presence there in 2022. After being introduced to Nouns.wtf by Klim (Bigshot Toyworks), and after much research, I found the NounsDAO project to be ambitious and inspiring. Below are more details and I’m more than excited to share ideas, answer questions and get to know everyone here. Thank you for your consideration…
Stand Up Art x Big Shot Toyworks Designercon Booth Proposal
Designercon (Dcon) is a mecca of creators, builders, artists, and tinkerers in all mediums physical and digital, as well as leading creatives in the NFT and web3 spaces. With over 65K in attendance, It’s an event that shapes the future direction of pop culture, and entertainment. What started as a few friends getting together evolved into a curated landscape for the imagination, innovation and collaboration. Dcon attracts a great international mix of artists, designers, creators, investors and dreamers. We think that it is a perfect place to showcase NOUNs and the projects funded by the DAO, onboard potential creative partners, and engage with an audience that is building culture from the ground up.
Designercon is a place where industry insiders expand their connections, and serves as a launching pad for many sucesful brands. We believe this event has many elements that will benefit NOUNs and help introduce the project in a grassroots, personable manner. A booth space at Dcon will help grow the NOUNs’ community by fostering relationships with respected industry insiders.
