FEAST! Such a great idea...

Funding Emerging Arts with Sustainable Tactics (FEAST) is an ingenious project. It seamlessly combines the joys of art and food by hosting public dinners designed to raise money for artistic projects. It's run by a group of individuals sharing a vortex of skills and is hosted by The Lutheran Church of the Messiah across the street from McGolrick Park.

Basically, you pay a sliding scale fee to enter, eat some amazing food prepared by Molly and David, and vote on a number of submitted proposals by artists working in a variety of creative disciplines. At the end of the evening the votes and monies are counted and the artist with the most votes receives the bag of cash. The proposal is to be realized by at the next FEAST event.

Next event is this saturday 9th of May starting around 6pm.

Pay the fee, eat some delicious food and help local artists put their ideas into fruition!

You can join their facebook group here, listen to the wnyc coverage here, see pictures from the event here.

I think every city should adopt this!...
