Working across the DAO to get more material on the YouTube channel including ETH Global live events, GM Bus videos, Reaching Quorum on the Forum, Weekly Rollup recap, Making Bank and Bounty Hunter audiograms, Tutorials Level up series.

Plans for Season 6:

Implementing Tutorials LEVEL UP as weekly content creation to improve our members as well as members of Design Guild (a Joint project). Tutorials LEVEL UP is a series of 1-hour tutorials teaching parts of various AV and Design programs and processes. We will have educators from within the guild teach their expertise to new and continuing members. These lessons have included Photoshop, Illustrator, Procreate, Vectorantor, Premiere Pro, Logic Pro X, and Ableton Live. Coming lessons will include Blender, AcidPro, Resolume, and Davinci Resolve.

Many of our members will be participating in various programs that have been spun out of the AV Guild such as Podcast Hatchery, CryptoSapiens, GM Bus, Weekly Rollup Recap, Bankless Africa Podcasts and Videos, ETH Global Events videos and more will be continued into Season 6.


Great proposal AV Guild!

I’m your Grants Committee Reviewer and generally this proposal looks good to me. Just a few questions:

  • For AV-Crew, what does has contributed to Guild activities and conversations mean? How do new joiners get the AV-Crew tag? Who gives it to them?
  • Where do you keep track of the different kinds of contributions to get to/mantain AV-Artisan status?

AV-Crew Tag is given by the Talent Coordinator after a person gains the @AV Guild tag and completes at least one of the listed contributions (Under #10Complete any of the following Artisan criteria to maintain Artisan status:

  1. Takes part in competitions by making qualifying contributions
  2. Claims Bounties, such as the New Contributor Bounty
  3. Updates relevant Notion pages
  4. Creates initiatives )

I can’t respond on notion now but:
We have the GRP which states how one transitions from crew to artisan. And our spreadsheet keeps track of contributions.


Thanks RCD! Glad to see such a thoughtful active member spec. Can I see the spreadsheet?

Also just want to say I love what you’ve been doing in the guild! You are a key piece of our DAOs media chops, and it makes us stronger to have you all around

Anthony may have another one, as the Talent Coordinator, but this is the one we’ve been using to track the Decentralized Guild Coordinator role and bounties for S5

Thanks for the spreadsheet! When I look at it i only see 15 unique members…is there another place you track contributions? How did you come up with the 37-member list?
