CALL for PROPOSALS: Future Framers FEAST

2017 July 21

Learn more about the 2017 Future Framers FEAST from VisArts!red, yellow or green FRUIT

I’m up to my eyeballs in tomatoes.  I’m not a morning person, so I don’t always get to the farmers market early.  So, I often have a smaller number of locally-grown options, but this time of year there are always tomatoes — sliced tomatoes, tomato pie, tomato sauce, tomato soup & even sun-dried tomatoes.  This next Call boasts a locally-grown & produced meal as the bonus to possible project funding.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Proposals from VisArts (Rockville, MD) for Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics (F.E.A.S.T.), a public meal designed to use community-driven financial support to democratically fund projects that use art & creative thinking to impact the community. Have a project that needs funding?
