Join the FEAST

The new initiative Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics (FEAST) is a recurring public dinner designed to use community-driven financial support to democratically fund new and emerging art makers. This Saturday, FEAST will be holding its second monthly dinner. For a sliding scale ($10 to 20), participants get a great meal crafted by One and Supp and a ballot that allows you to vote on arts projects presented at the dinner. This month there are a total of thirteen proposals. At the end of dinner, the artist whose proposal receives the most votes will be awarded the funds collected through the entrance fee to produce the project. The work will then be presented during the next FEAST. So join the FEAST! Good food, music, people, and of course, art. Everyone is welcome. Listen to a story about FEAST on WNYC’s Art.Cult podcast.

February’s FEAST grantee Dan Funderburgh will present his wallpaper beautification project.

Based on last month’s attendance, FEAST is expecting a sizeable turnout, so come early to ensure you’re in time for dinner. In fact, you can arrive around 3 PM to help the team set up.
