A micro-grant raised by the people to support democratically-selected imaginative, sustainable, provocative project/s that address the theme of SURVIVAL.
F.E.A.S.T. at VisArts 2019 (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics) is a bridge between artists and the community. F.E.A.S.T. is a public meal designed to use community-driven financial support to democratically fund projects that use art and creative thinking to impact the community. F.E.A.S.T. at VisArts 2019 will take place on June 16th on the Rooftop at VisArts in Rockville, Maryland, 6 – 9 PM. Patrons will give a donation for which they receive a meal of locally produced and prepared food and a ballot. Diners listen to and review a series of project proposals and converse with the artists and thinkers behind each idea. Attendees cast a vote for their favorite proposal, and by the end of the event, the artist who garners the most votes is awarded a grant comprised of the event donations.
