Curation Lies At The Heart Of The NFT Landscape
Curation is the art of reinforcing creators' collections and narratives, which involves insight, strategy, community understanding, and dot-connecting between stakeholders. Being a curator also means onboarding and coordinating creators to generate cohesive projects.
"A synonym for curator could be negotiator" — or match-maker.
Curators also play a critical role in bridging communities. There is more to curation than just orchestrating creative works. It also means sourcing and vetting the patrons, and finding alignment with the right audience.
DoinGud Participants Taking Control Via Curation
The relationship between curation and community ownership is a symbiotic one. DoinGud’s decision to have community members in the driver’s seat means that curatorial decisions flow from community members themselves. Initially, curation will be managed internally by the DoinGud team who will be onboarding with a speed that ensures the creator experience is top quality. In the near future, all the creations you see on DoinGud will always be the content that the curators choose to put forward. This will encourage organic diversity, incentivized action, and a wider range of creativity.
A Marketplace For All
To amplify diversity, we have selected our first featured creators to be individuals who encompass a wide variety of creative mediums, geographic locations, cultural backgrounds, and identities. This speaks to DoinGud's core mission: a diverse and global ecosystem of creators who make the world a better place. From there, invited creators will be able to curate the next wave of talent by onboarding their fellow team mates and co-creators, growing DoinGud’s community across the globe.
Transitioning From One Gallery To Many Galleries
In-line with our ethos of community-ownership, DoinGud will transition from a single gallery format at launch to a multi-gallery format in the months following the launch. Our platform will consist of a multi-gallery ecosystem where all token holders are able to have a curatorial voice.
Brands, collectives, curators, and communities will have the ability to host their own drops, digital exhibitions, or onboard new creative talent from the DoinGud Gallery Pool. The way this Gallery Pool works is that creators post creations to the pool, from which they receive proposals. Once there is a proposal that the creator likes and wants to progress with, they move forward with their chosen gallery/curator with the terms clear upfront.
Eventually anyone will be able to submit their creations to the community “Gallery Pool”, regardless of whether or not they are already a DoinGud creator. This way, anyone will have the opportunity to be featured through their own skill and merit.
By allowing brands, curators and collectives to open their own unique spaces within our ecosystem, DoinGud is offering a whole new level of engagement with the members, contributors, and audiences within a community.
DoinGud is an NFT ecosystem focused on inspiring creativity and positive social impact. We pride ourselves on accessibility and sustainability, providing next-gen Web3 tools to empower our community to create, curate, collaborate, and connect with one another in the digital space.
Thank you so much for being part of this amazing journey with us.
