CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Come FEAST with us!
FEAST (Funding Engaging Actions with Sustainable Tactics) Toronto is a series of
community dinners and microâ€funding events. During each dinner, artists, designers and
groups are invited to present proposals for artâ€ or designâ€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 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 5â€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 (1â€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 locallyâ€sourced,
vegetarian dinner will be $20â€30, and $10 for students.
Proposals are due by: Friday May 20, 2011
