FEAST Toronto Call for Proposals

[title title=”FEAST 08 Call for Proposals”]

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 grant winner(s) will be invited back to the next FEAST to present their completed project.

We are looking for proposals for the next FEAST, edition 08, and taking place on Sunday, January 18th, 2015 at Xpace Cultural Centre 303 Lansdowne Avenue, Toronto.

FEAST 08 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

IMPORTANT! You must be able to attend the FEAST event on January 18th in order to apply.  Project presentations are given in-person by the presenters to the gathered guests over dinner, and then everyone gets to vote on which project they would like to fund.  The money raised from the dinner (estimated at $700+) will go to fund the project with the most votes.  We will also have a separate student grant of $300 donated by Xpace Cultural Centre.

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 event. Tickets for this locally- sourced, vegetarian dinner will be $20-30, and $10 for students.

+ Proposals are due by Saturday December 13, 2014.

+ Email your complete proposals to [email protected] with the subject line: FEAST 08 Submission. Please indicate clearly on your proposal if you are applying for the student grant.
