FEAST - Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics


FEAST at VisArts (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics) hopes to develop a bridge between artists and the community. FEAST is a public dinner designed to use community-driven financial support to democratically fund new and emerging art makers. The first FEAST at VisArts will take place on March 24, 2012 in the Gibbs Street Gallery in Rockville, Maryland. Patrons will give a $30 donation for which they receive supper and a ballot. Diners spend the evening reviewing a series of project proposals and conversing with the artists behind each idea. Attendees cast a vote for their favorite proposal, and by the end of the night, the artist who garners the most votes is awarded a grant comprised of that evening’s door money.

FEAST at VisArts invites artists, thinkers, and organizations to submit proposals for funding for up to $1,000. Project proposals will address the theme of Sustainability

FEAST at VisArts is based on FEAST Brooklyn’s ( model for sustaining artist projects directly through community participation. If you are not familiar with FEAST — please read FEAST Brooklyn’s about page. Another great resource:
