FEAST Miami presents vegan pop-up diners

The first FEAST Miami (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics) dinner will be held on Sunday, August 3, at 6 pm at Emerson Dorsch Gallery (151 NW 24th Street). FEAST Miami brings food and art together to create community. The meals-based micro-funding project consists of a series of vegan pop-up dinners at art venues to financially support new and emerging creative projects. 

A minimum donation of $60 per person is suggested, and diners may contribute more as the more funds are collected, the greater the award for the winning project. The meals will be prepared with organic and locally sourced foods by Chef Loren Pulitzer of Meals That Heal. 

The menu features healthy Japanese-inspired fare with some local produce donated by Urban Oasis Project/Verde Gardens. Ticket includes a delicious vegan and gluten-free dinner and dessert as well as drinks and donation. Limited tickets are available and can be purchased at feastmiami.org. For more information, contact Meals That Heal at 786.281.0091.

In June, artists and small arts organizations were invited to present a simple proposal for an art project. A group of panelists will select five finalists to present their project at the first FEAST. The finalists for FEAST Miami #2 are the following: Lori Nozick - Sal Non Sal Miami; Justin Trieger - Buskerfest Miami 2014; Michelle Weinberg - Speech Patterns: Tiles with Texts for Small Public Spaces; Katie Wiegman  - On Board; and Hattie Mae Williams - Miami Sites Project.  The diners will vote for the project to be funded. The criteria for the projects are innovation, feasibility and impact on the community.
