      EVENT DETAILS
      FEAST 2020: A More Than Human World

      F.E.A.S.T. 2020 encourages artists, thinkers, and organizations to expand their everyday practice and create project proposals that address the theme of a more than human world. Imaginative, sustainable, and provocative projects that explore and make visible a more-than-human perspective are welcome! F.E.A.S.T. 2020 advocates for proposals that join art with social, cultural, political, economic, historic, and environmental dynamics. Imaginings, actions, performances, dance, theater, writing, visual art, walks, physical and virtual, analog or digital, and beyond.

      Project proposals offer opportunities for creative interaction within or between our communities. Great ideas specific to one community may also inspire action in another.

      Restore active relationships with a wider community that includes animals, plants, natural objects, patterns, and phenomena!

      Cultivate many-sided experiences!

      Join diverse partners for inclusive investigations!

      Generate empathy and engagement!

      Proposals are evaluated for artistic innovation, community impact, feasibility, proposal clarity, and content.

      F.E.A.S.T. at VisArts (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. Patrons will give a donation for a meal 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. F.E.A.S.T. at VisArts is based on F.E.A.S.T. in Brooklyn’s (www.feastinbklyn.org) model for sustaining artist projects directly through community participation.

      F.E.A.S.T. 2020 goes virtual via zoom.

      Our goal is to try to raise $2,000 for a micro-grant raised by the people to support democratically-selected imaginative, sustainable, provocative projects that address the theme of a more than human world.

      As always F.E.A.S.T. involves everyone eating together. For our virtual F.E.A.S.T we will deliver delicious fixings for taco salads (Seasons Catering) with recipes for completing the meal! You can dine in the comfort of your own home with all of us and cast your vote for your favorite proposal.

      Cost: Payment required - 15$ Minimum Donation
