We are thrilled to announce that Tinderbox is a finalist in the FEAST #11 Community Grant! The winner of the grant will be decided this Saturday, July 9 at Church of the Messiah (129 Russel Street) in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The event takes place from 5-8pm! So come eat dinner, get to know other community members producing innovate projects, and support Tinderbox, FEAST, and community!
FEAST (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics) is a recurring public dinner designed to use community-driven financial support to democratically fund new and emerging art makers. At each FEAST, patrons give a $20 donation for which they receive supper and a ballot. Diners spend the evening reviewing a series of project proposals and conversing with the artists behind each idea. Attendees cast a vote for their favorite proposal, and by the end of the night, the artist who garners the most votes is awarded a grant comprised of that evening’s door money.
