F.E.A.S.T. at VisArts (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics) is a bridge between artists and the community. F.E.A.S.T. is designed to use community-driven financial support to democratically fund projects that use art and creative thinking to impact the community. Funding for this grant comes from the donations of attendees and participants who will listen to & review a series of project proposals, and converse with the artists and thinkers behind each idea. Attendees cast a vote for their favorite proposal, and by the end of the event, the artist who garners the most votes is awarded a grant comprised of the event donations. Tickets by donation, $10 minimum, 100% of donations go to fund the micro grant of up to $2000.
