For those that have missed recent posts and updates, we thought we would post some information regarding the Harmony Creative DAO.
The Harmony Creative DAO first formed on November the 28th, due to various factors there were some delays with getting the DAO fully operational. This led to a community vote via snapshot to extend the term until April 13th to give the current governors the full 3 month term to be fully operational once the the DAO had been funded. You can find this vote and more information here - Snapshot
Now that certain issues have been resolved the governors are extremely excited to get work underway with a full team. For some time they have been requesting contributors to sign up through a google form so they can be notified when relevant bounties become available. If you’re a creative and you believe you can assist with completing bounties to help with the overall goal of the DAO and its community please fill out the following sheet-Contributor Registration Form
It’s always great to have creatives signing up to be available for bounties, however, you do not have to be an artist of some kind to assist your DAO, if you would like to help or have ideas then please reach out to a governor for advice, we can work stronger together and the more participation we receive, the more we can achieve.
More than likely when presented with an idea the governors will advise you to make a post on Talk.Harmony.One to start a community discussion, and if enough community members like the idea then the DAO can help facilitate turning it into a reality. We cannot stress enough, the DAO governors are simply 9 community members here to assist the community and help the DAO help you.
If you would like to help the creative DAO expand with their reach on social media, please sign up on the following google form: Social Sharing Registration
The current governors of the Creative DAO are as follows, Bricktop_One, Buythefndip, Chris Cheeky Crypto, HODLen, Loechii, Thehighindian, Thenursegreg, ChrisStakeridoo and GlobeyNFT. You can reach out to these governors via Twitter or Telegram.

The Creative DAO currently have 2 active posts on Talk.Harmony.One, One of these posts is the current funding request for the next treche of funding, and another is a discretionary fund proposal when urgent payments are needed for collaborators of the DAO.
The recent funding request included $50,000 funding for the DAO treasury, but a request in line which covers a $25,000 request, which, with the communities approval via snapshot vote will be use for a bountry program for creatives to interact with their DAO, this $25k creative focussed bounty program was set out in our deliverables, the Creative DAO governors are extremely excited to unveil plans regarding this once finalised and ready to be presented to the community for their advice and approval.
The discretionary fund proposal is something which sounds a little unusual for a DAO, we have recently seen the Harmony Community DAO pass this with their community with sucess and full support, the reason why this was put in place, governors had realised that there are some situations in which contributors need to be paid and in certain circumstances the time it takes to get a proposal voted on and then onto a pending snapshop proposal and then on to to an active vote would cause a 2 week delay, and in some situations, these payments would need to be made for small and simple tasks before they had even began, such as paying a translator for an urgent document, creating and infograph, ect. Although the system thats put in place is called a discretionary fund proposal, strict rules govern the use of this which state how and in what situations these funds can be used for.
It would be great if you can take a look, and share your opinions on the following 2 posts below which mentioned above.
