New Community Way to Fund Creative Projects

Mar 29, 2018 04:37AM

On April 12 from 6:30 to 9pm, Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics (FEAST) will hold its next recurring public dinner designed to use community-driven financial support to democratically fund new and emerging creative ideas. Join host Makery Coworking for this opportunity to sit with other dreamers and help the community by pooling resources, and believing in somebody with a heart and an idea.

Selected local creatives will present project ideas that they believe will make a positive impact in the community. As you eat, you get to vote for your favorite project on a ballot. The idea with the most votes wins and takes home the net proceeds from the event to help fund their project.

Guests at this New Milford event buy tickets for $25, which pays for a dinner meal and ballot in this lively, artistic environment. Drinks are also available for purchase. 

Perhaps you envision a community-wide mural on the side of a building, a mobile elixir bar, or a sculpture that conveys a heartfelt message. If you are interested in submitting your own idea, visit for the creative criteria. If your project is selected to appear on the ballot, you will be allotted 10 minutes to present at FEAST New Milford.

Makery Coworking is a Litchfield County-based coworking space that offers space to a community of professionals, including freelancers, “solopreneurs”, small businesses and nonprofits.
