Call for Artists - Apply for the November 9th FEAST!
FEAST (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics) is a public soirée that uses community-driven financial support to democratically fund new and emerging art makers. FEAST attendees will pay to attend a catered reception, and a portion of that payment will be set aside as a prize. While attendees eat, mingle, and imbibe, three artists will showcase their work and explain their proposed public art project. After the three presenters are finished, attendees vote on which artist's project they wish to award the prize. The upcoming FEAST event will be held:
When: Thursday, November 9th, 6-8pm
Where:The ARTS at Marks Garage(1159 Nuuanu Ave, Honolulu, HI)
