FEAST (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics)
Proposals are due February 14th, 2011
Please visit our website for more details - feastinbklyn.org

FEAST is a recurring public dinner designed to use community-driven
financial support to democratically fund new and emerging art makers. At
each FEAST, participants pay a sliding-scale entrance fee for which
they receive a supper and a ballot. Diners vote on a variety of artist
projects and at the end of the night, the project with the most votes is
awarded funds to produce the project. The work is then presented at the
following FEAST. Since 2009, FEAST Brooklyn has produced 8 dinners,
funded dozens of projects and raised over $10,000. Meanwhile, similar
models have emerged all over the country, building a network of
organizations committed to rethinking how art is financed and
experienced communally.

We encourage all artists, thinkers, and organizations at any stage in
their career to apply. Up to this point, the projects that have received
funding represent a diverse cross section of contemporary artistic and
social practices. From urban gardens to mobile party vans, to public
sculptures to performances, no project or medium is incongruous with
FEAST. While we encourage artists to think outside their everyday
practice and produce work that speaks to the community, we also seek to
enable funding wherever it is needed. Unlike conventional grant
programs, artists receive funding immediately and are therefore enabled
to make timely work as soon as they can.

Please feel free to forward this letter far and wide. We look forward to another round of great proposals.
