Micro-funding event that supports local artists

I am proud to be a member of the Arts & Culture Committee at Britannia Community Centre–my neighbourd community centre–and want to share with you this project that we have developed and is now in it’s third year of running.

The EAST FEAST is a micro-funding event that supports local artists who live or work in the neighbourhoods of Grandview-Woodland & Strathcona through a community meal that raises funds through ticket sales to the event which in turn directly funds an artist or artist group. This FEAST is grassroots micro-funding at its best, relying on community engagement to be successful. We are looking to support and stimulate experimental, creative, and critical projects that would benefit the FEAST community.

This event is organized by the Arts & Culture Committee & Britannia Community Services Centre Society.

The next East Feast is June 2, 2013, 2 – 4 pm.

Come and see the 3 finalists that will be presenting and vote  for the project that you think should get up to $1000 in funding.
