Tickets for FEAST 02 are available online. Click here to purchase yours!

FEAST is happening Wednesday, June 15, 2011 at XPACE Cultural Centre from 7-10 PM.

What is FEAST?

FEAST (Funding Engaging Actions with Sustainable Tactics) Toronto is a series of community dinners and micro-funding events. During each dinner, artists, designers and groups are invited to present proposals for art- or design-based projects. Everyone attending the dinner votes on which project they would like to fund, and the project with the most votes is given a grant from the money raised from the ticket sales.

The ticket cost for the locally-sourced, vegetarian dinner is a sliding scale of $20-30 (and $10 for students with valid student ID).

FEAST works on the basis that the more that people can share, the larger the grants are that we can provide. At our last FEAST event we were able to fund two fantastic projects by Sean Martindale and Matt Moreland.

Toronto’s FEAST is in its infancy. With your support we hope to see this event continue to grow.

How it works:

  1. Buy a ticket for the dinner on June 15, 2011 at XPACE Cultural Centre
  2. Enjoy dinner and conversation with your friends and community
  3. Over the course of dinner artists present project proposals for your consideration
  4. Everyone votes for which project they would like to fund
  5. The project with the most votes is funded from the money raised from ticket sales
