Project Details**
Optimism Creative Dao

What are you building?:

Optimism creative Dao is aims at onboarding creatives in Nigera through physical events and educational seminar.

Why do you believe what you are building is going to succeed?:

There are a whole lot of creatives in Nigeria with no knowledge on optimism and web3 in general. Our goal is to organize educational events for creatives to provide information on how they can leverage fully on optimism network. How they can use the different dapps built on optimism for their creative works

How will receiving a grant enable you to further the mission of maximizing the number of users interacting with Optimism? Please include a step-by-step flow of how you imagine this grant can lead to a greater number of user interactions with Optimism:

Our first step is to create at open call for web3 content creators, with large number of followers, to make informative contents on how users can leverage on optimism, these contents will be highly promoted on all social media platforms

Our second step is to build an active community of creatives and web3 enthusiasts from adverts from contents ,we will provide mentorship for them on all levels, show them how to make Nfts on optimism market place, how to leverage on the various dapps built on optimism

Creative and Educational Seminar
We will be hosting a physical event for creatives in nigeria ,the purpose of this event is to connect physically with creatives and educate them on how to leverage on optimism network. We will also be making Nfts at the event. The attendees of the event will be introduced to our community for mentorship and more learning.

Tell us about the users you plan to target with this grant. Include any defining characteristics that will help you identify and target them.:

Our target is majorly creatives ( muisc, art , poet,) etc, 99% of creatives in nigeria have no knowledge on how to leverage on optimism network. We are creating an interactive community to mentor and educate local creatives on how to leverage on optimism network through our physical events and promotional contents on social media.

How would these users interact with Optimism? For how long?:
By organizing standard events for creatives and providing information and mentoring them on how they can leverage and make income on dapps built on optimism

Creation of video contents

Mentorship and guidance of 50 creatives ( 5%)
( 1 week)

Marketing of events and video contents: 40%

(8 weeks)

Please provide benchmark milestones for this project. These milestones should guide the Optimism community on the progress of your project throughout your work on the project. Do not use distribution of the grant itself as a milestone:

Our first step is to create educational contents with social media influencers to get traffic on the contents. These contents will contain good information that would attract creatives to the community

We will do a strong publicity campaign at the university of Lagos , nigeria for our event, because this is where 80% of our target audience are. ( students, creatives).

We will market nfts made by creatives in our community, to potential investors. Sales of nfts will keep creatives active in the community for a very long period of time

We will provide daily mentorship and guidance to all creative in our community.

Please define critical milestones for this project. Critical milestones are meant to show good-faith efforts to accomplish the project. Non-completion of these milestones could lead to revocation of remaining grant rewards. Do not use distribution of the grant itself as a milestone:

If the OP tokens are for direct distribution to users, why will incentivized users and liquidity on Optimism remain after incentives dry up?:

Please provide any additional information that will facilitate accountability (smart contracts addresses relevant to the proposal, relevant organizational wallet addresses, etc.):
