Exciting news to share:
🚀 We just launched the crowdfund for our creator residency program at the cabins!
Over the past few weeks, we've been asking ourselves:
"What could our community do with a year of time and space to create?"
We want to bring more people out to the cabins to help answer the question, so we're starting a residency program. It's an experiment in universal creator income, tech stacks for decentralized cities, and the physical manifestation of DAOs.
We're crowdfunding a year's worth of time at the cabins via a DAO. All contributors will be awarded $CABIN tokens, which can be used to vote for creator residency proposals. We plan on funding 12 projects for a one-month stay each.
While the first use-case for this DAO is creator residencies, we hope to learn from this experiment and continue to find ways to sustainably fund independent online creators and develop DAO-based governance models for physical spaces. This project came together over the course of a two-week stay at Creator Cabins by members of creator.coop. We didn't go into our stay intending to make this——the plan emerged from two weeks of co-working, co-living, and co-creating at the cabins.
Everyone came into their time at the cabins with projects they wanted to finish, but late-night conversations around the fire got us all inspired to think about opening the space up to the whole community, regardless of financial means. We hope the residency program can help inspire more collaborative, community-oriented projects like this one.
