What are you hoping to accomplish through this event? Doodles Singapore has been dead for quite a while. The group was passionate in early 2021 and after some failed attempts to get Doodles core team to spare some attention on Asia community events, eventually the community went dormant and today it barely exists. I am hoping that this is a small step towards reinvigorating the Doodles community in Singapore and reactivating the Doodles’ presence in Asia. The goal is encourage community members to share & display their Doodles, reigniting their passion, imagination, and love for this amazing IP!

Project Lead Additional Remarks

The original idea to organize a Doodle meetup at Token 2049 was proposed by Nir. I would love to combine forces to hold a community meetup at Mandala Club. This proposal is simply an indication of the base level the event would be at, I am actively looking for ways to improve the event plan, and am open to any and all suggestions.

We would need to secure the deposit with the Club to lock the venue in. It would be great to build a relationship with Mandala Club, building a physical clubhouse for our community within South East Asia as they are expanding to Bali, HK, Jakarta, Japan and Bangkok. Mandala Club has offered to alternative payment method in the form of $3,500 + 1 OG doodle which is preferred - as mentioned above, they would prefer this form of payment in order to add to the promotional aspect of the event.

We would like to request for Doodles’ original animation content to be showcased at the event - we would prefer some never-seen-before content if some of it can be timed to be launched in mid-September.

Will any of the core team members / community council be present at the event? Token 2049 is one of the biggest events in Asia and it would be great to have someone speak or be present at the event if possible. I know that other “blue-chip” communities will have core team members present at Token 2049, although that’s not to say that we need to do the same
