F.E.A.S.T. at VisArts - Call for Proposals

F.E.A.S.T. at VisArts 2016 (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 2016 will take place on September 25th on the Rooftop at VisArts in Rockville, Maryland, 11:30 to 3:00 PM. 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 ticket money.

F.E.A.S.T. at VisArts invites artists, thinkers, and organizations to submit proposals for funding up to $1,000. Project proposals will address the theme Future Framers: Envisioning Rockville in 2040. Proposals from artists, thinkers, organizations, and collaborative teams are welcome. Put creative thinking into practice. Help envision a sustainable Rockville in 25 years!

Projects that may receive funding represent a diverse cross section of contemporary artistic, social, design and scientific practices. Performances, community events, visual, sonic, tactile, olfactory discoveries, documents, parades, paths, maps, participatory actions, poetic data analysis, interviews, stories, games… No project or medium is incongruous with F.E.A.S.T.

Deadline: Tuesday, September 6, 2016 at midnight
