Here is another excellent event for your calendar, an event on June 2nd that can directly assist artists in our neighbourhood. As the Britannia notice says:
The EAST FEAST is a community meal that raises funds through ticket sales to the event which in turn directly funds an artist or artist group. The decision on the distribution of funds is given to the community through a democratic voting process. This FEAST is grassroots micro-funding at its best, relying on community engagement to be successful.
I’ll be interested in looking at all the artists seeking funds but, to be honest, I’ll be leaning toward a piece called “Three Rings: An East Van Big Top Extravaganza” produced by Trish Mitchell with the support of Famous Empty Sky and Avenue for the Arts which recently put on the fabulous “Clockwork Universe” event last month.
Hope to see you there!
