|Introduction||FEAST (Funding Engaging Actions with Sustainable Tactics) is a series of participatory dinners and micro-funding events that support creative projects with community involvement. Artists, designers and groups are invited to present proposals for projects during the dinner. Everyone attending the dinner votes on which project they would like to fund, and the project with the most votes is given a grant from the money that is raised from the dinner tickets.
FEAST was founded by Amber Landgraff and Deborah Wang. Food for FEAST is by Lisa Myers and guest chefs, with music by Alison Snowball. FEAST is co-presented with XPACE Cultural Centre. Past and present sponsors, supporters and collaborators include A Space Gallery, Amsterdam Beer, Dave Morgan, Fuse Magazine, Gladstone Hotel, and Toronto Free Gallery.
