{"ops":[{"insert":"The Trojan DAO is a Decentralised Autonomous Organization that began operating in Athens, Greece in the summer of 2019.\n\n\nTh context within which we launched is that in recent years Athens has seen a proliferation of alternative art spaces and initiatives, perhaps an unforeseen result of challenging recent experiences of austerity crisis and capital controls, and the resulting closing of commercial art spaces. The conditions have pushed for new practices: Making structures that are co-managed and operated by artists themselves according to our needs all the more important. We only have eachother to rely on!\n\nTo find ways to better sustain autonomous art practices there needs to be an update to our basic mechanisms of collective decision-making and resource sharing. The Trojan DAO is an organization as an interdisciplinary artwork. Transparent, fluid, permeable, synergistic, inclusive, interventional, where the slow to adapt bureaucracies of the past are replaced by creativity, the power of ideas, and rituals of collectivity.  \n\nThe ideas that guide us is that together we can achieve more than the sum of our parts, that culture is a collaborative process, and that we are interdependent on eachother's efforts.\n\nWe keep in context that the technology, despite all the new potentials that it offers, does not replace commonality of experience and our networks of mutual trust that we build on, with the understanding that we should not expect solutions for grassroots coordination in art to come from within the established systems, but rather they can be cultivated through the active involvement of those who use them.\n\nFor the Trojan DAO, all who participate are it’s curators. Each one of us has a creative potential. To express, explore and develop this potential, by finding new ways to strengthen the connections between us as a community of creators is the purpose of the Trojan DAO.\n\nOur projects to date:\n\n"},{"attributes":{"link":"https://github.com/TROJANFOUNDATION/Trojan-DAO-Token-Engineering"},"insert":"Token Engineering: Researching and developing a decentralised local community currency."},{"insert":"\n\n"},{"attributes":{"link":"https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NonJiRDxah8vyNbDIqjeFG5Xpya0whgjLoym8mLw0sw/edit?usp=sharing"},"insert":"mPorn 2 Dream: Exhibition at Communitism"},{"attributes":{"header":3},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"\n"},{"attributes":{"link":"https://kickback.events/event/0xb7bbb5f9ada8568e6968fc3f70817d78bb7d1260"},"insert":"Interface Exhibition at the Year of DAOs, Osaka Blockchain Week"},{"insert":"\n"},{"attributes":{"link":"https://osaka-interface.squarespace.com/"},"insert":"Link 2.
