Description: FEA$T (Funding Emerging Artists with Sustainable Tactics) is a new event designed to generate support for ambitious concepts initiated by area artists. It's a community-driven dinner with all the proceeds funding a single project that might not happen otherwise -- crowdfunding the arts right here in Omaha. Artist applications are due on November 10 and the FEA$T will take place on November 17 at 6:30 pm.

FEA$T is based on multiple successful micro-granting models around the country. The event FEA$T consists of a dinner prepared by chef Paul Kulik of the Boiler Room restaurant, during which 5-7 pre-selected artists give brief presentations about a future project that requires funding. After the presentations, the diners will vote and the project that receives the most support will receive all ticket proceeds from the event. The winning artist will present the results of their project at a future FEA$T event.
