This Thursday: Feast Mass Artist Talk

Monday, January 16, 2012 | Posted by Alex
We've been asked by Artists in Context to take part in a discussion about grassroots funding & the arts!

Falling through the Cracks:
Funding integrative socially-engaged practice

Thursday January 19, 7–9 pm
Cambridge Public Library - Main Branch
449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA

Artists involved in post-studio "integrative" practice for positive social outcomes face unique questions and challenges when it comes to funding their projects and supporting themselves through their work...

What are some other options for funding this work and supporting its practitioners? What part can crowd-funding, earned income strategies, and foundations play? What are the limitations of these approaches? What new funding models and institutions are being created or need to be created? What skills do practitioners need in order to make their projects and practices sustainable?

Please join us in exploring these questions and issues at a panel discussion featuring:

Cuong Hoang, Director of Programs at Mott Philanthropic.

Andrew Sempere, Trustee from the Awesome Foundation.

Nerissa Cooney & Alexander Hage, co-founders of Feast Mass.

The conversation will be moderated by artist Lisa Gross, founder of the Boston Tree Party and Hybrid Vigor Projects.
