FEAST 03 Call for Proposals

Participants & guests in between presentations & dinner courses at FEAST 02

feast 03 TORONTO


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 artist or group chosen will be invited back to the next FEAST to present their completed project.

We are looking for proposals for the next FEAST, edition 03, taking place on Sunday, September 25, 2011 at XPACE Cultural Centre, 58 Ossington Avenue, Toronto. This FEAST will happen concurrently with other events as part of The Soup Network.

FEAST 03 proposals should include:

A Project Summary (1), and the answers to the following questions:
(2) How will you use funding to realize your project?
(3) Why is this project critical to the FEAST community (e.g. why would the FEAST community be interested in supporting your project)?
(4) The names and contact information for all of your presenters

Each of the chosen participants presents a 5-7 minute presentation to the gathered guests over dinner, and then everyone gets a chance to vote on which projects they would like to fund.  The money raised from the dinner (estimated at $700+, plus a 1 week studio rental or rehearsal space at Toronto Free Gallery) will go to fund the chosen project.  We will also have a separate student grant of $300.

Each section of the proposal (1-4) should be no longer than 100 words.  Remember these will be short presentations, so keep it brief and to the point!  In order to be considered for FEAST funding, you must be able to attend the dinner event. Tickets for this locally-sourced, vegetarian dinner will be $20-30, and $10 for students.

+ Proposals are due by Wednesday, September 7, 2011.
+ Email your complete proposals to info@feast-toronto.com with the subject line: FEAST 03 Submission. Please indicate clearly on your proposal if you are applying for the student grant.
