Should the following $60,000 grant in the In-World Content category be approved?
Daydream X SEA LLC,. built Serena Elis World in DCL, and has been steadily active since August of 2021. With weekly events, onboarding artists, we have held well over 80 shows on this parcel. Serena has performed over 200 shows to date. Between music, onboarding artists and blogging. We want to continue to grow our education and Performing Arts project. We have proven to be consistent bringing forth quality & Innovation. Since last grant, was able to connect with Brands like SONY, Gamerhash, & Pitchbook. Serena’s becoming an experienced, competent, trusted, and reliable creator. Not just simple projects, ones that require interpersonal collaboration. This grant will let us continue to make strong influences & impacts.
Continuation of Entertainment and resources for women with Education for the year of April 2023-2034
Serena Elis World has been sharing her platform with other artists to help ease their way into their own journeys in Decentraland, while also providing value in the form of education. Our Values include Transparency, Innovation, Inclusivity, Boldness, and Quality. We want to continue to deliver resources and education for this project with IRL and in-game events, Curriculum, as well as sharing these resources for all communities in web2/web3 spaces.
Keeping inclusivity at the forefront, for everyone to learn and also be part of Musical Emersive events supporting Women and minorities.
We would like to continue to blog about the content creators already within the game and what they provide, How To’s, and other web3/Decentraland resources.
Our future goal is to add another 96 Blogs on top of the 22 already created covering artists within the community with their information and other web 3 related topics. We want to continue this so new users and researchers know who to contact creatives, for services, learn, and get more insight into Decentraland.
We gained 2.5K Clicks as of today organically. An example of this we also brought BJORK fans from the last MVMF from our blogs. (Analytics are on the Canva link ) Bringing readers from events, and DCL activities. We want to continue to grow exposure from web 2 sites like Google, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc.
1.Onboarding Women Entertainers and Minorities in Performing Arts
Serena Elis World has also hosted and featured well-known female artists in the WEB 2 AND WEB 3 spaces. We have carefully and strategically crafted the presence of quality artists in DCL, and would like to continue in this grant to bring more female and diverse entertainers from different backgrounds, cultures, and races.
We would like to continue the onboarding process for the next year. The average time spent with each artist is about 5 hrs for the pre - event, plus another 2hr for each event. It takes about two weeks to getting things setup for an event. With many connections in the entertainment industry before DCL, I take the responsibility and feel equipped to take on the task. I have worked in production for well known celebrity events for I have built a strong rapport with artists and celebrities, and also speak their language. We would like to take these skill sets and apply them to growing this project for the entire year. This is for everyone, but specifically to help minority groups and women.

PURSUING MUSIC ARTISTIC ENDEAVORS
I have put a lot of time, effort and money into increasing my name recognition and building a Decentraland reputation while also promoting the platform. I want to continue to deliver quality performances and onboard a diverse group of artists.
This will allow me to create in DCL full time
-keeping up innovation and fresh ideas
-More collaborative work with IRL brands and community members.
-Bring inspiration and new concepts to the table
-Numerous concepts and formulas serena’s created are being used in DCL today*
Our blogs worked out flawlessly when we onboarded performers with no knowledge about DCL. With the use of the resources and tools, plus guidance from expertise and experience in performing arts, it became a smooth transition for well-known creators to trust and take the leap.
We reached 10k accounts on social media platforms in 9 weeks onboarding females with a total of 85k followers. Organically, starting at 0. We realize how effective the blogs were through our website’s analytics (which can be found Canva presentation) The key takeaway: as a performer with experience and time spent building, being relatable to entertainers and creators really made a unique difference and brought curiosity to them wanting to learn and know more.
My creation from the last grant was recognized by SONY. I Was interviewed about my Innovation within the Metaverse, attending one of our DCL events, and created an internal project for them. An NDA prohibited me from providing any more details.
I am becoming an experienced, competent, and reliable creator within the web3 space. I get things done. Not just simple projects. Ones that require interpersonal collaboration and constant attention.We do want to continue to make strong influences and impact and draw eyes to this project from businesses, artists, and larger companies.
