FEAST 02 Call for Proposals -- due May 20, 2011


Come FEAST with us!

We are looking for proposals for FEAST 02, taking place on Wednesday, June 15, 2011 at 7pm at  XPACE Cultural Centre, 58 Ossington Avenue, Toronto. 

FEAST 02 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 $600+, and a 1 week studio rental at the Gladstone Hotel*) will go to fund the chosen project.  We will also have a dedicated 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: Friday May 20, 2011
+    Email your complete proposals to with the subject line: FEAST 02 Submission. Please indicate clearly on your proposal if you are applying for the student grant.
