Pop up dining at art venues


This is something that would be perfect for galleries in Coconut Grove. FEAST Miami (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics) is a meals-based micro-funding project that consists of pop-up dinners at art venues to financially support new and emerging creative projects. Diners will give a minimum donation for dinner and the opportunity to fund an exciting art project. This idea was created through the support of Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge to bring food and art together to create community.

Artists and small arts organizations are invited to submit a simple proposal for an art project by March 27, 2014. The proposals will be scored by a selection committee made up of art professionals and the top five applicants will be invited to present at the dinner. Diners will then vote for the project to be funded. Projects should be innovative, feasible and impact the community. Applications are available at feastmiami.org.

The first FEAST Miami will be held at Miami Light Project's Light Box on April 27 at 6 pm. The meals will be healthfully prepared with organic and locally-sourced foods. Inspired by the food sustainability movement, FEAST will provide community-based sustainability for the arts. This was founded by Chef Loren Pulitzer of Meals That Heal and curator/producer Susan Caraballo. FEAST Miami was inspired by F.E.A.S.T. Brooklyn organized by artists. It is made possible through the support of John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge that funds ideas that help bring South Florida together through the arts.

Meals That Heal offers a variety of services, ranging from cooking classes to catering to personal chef services. Pulitzer specializes in special diets and in helping clients heal themselves through nutrition. Meals That Heal also has a vegan and gluten-free dessert line, Simply Sharon’s, that are sold in various locations in in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Key West and Columbus (OH).
Knight Foundation supports transformational ideas that promote quality journalism, advance media innovation, engage communities and foster the arts. The foundation believes that democracy thrives when people and communities are informed and engaged. For more, visit KnightFoundation.org.

Much, much, much to complicated, to many hoops to jump over & through. Art & artist aren't the focus here, rather someone(s) had to sit around sipping tea trying to figure out how to create something to champion because all the top slots were taken for save the children, save the animals and save Mother Earth. The same, if not better results would flow forth from common folk [artist] who got together with pot luck meals.
