What is bham FEAST?
Bham FEAST (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics) is a public micro-granting supper during which diners vote to democratically fund projects that use design as a transformative tool to better our community
The grant amount to be awarded at the dinner is $5,000 Unlike conventional grant programs, Bham FEAST brings people together for conversation centered on design and innovation This will be Birmingham’s first FEAST, in conjunction with Design Week Birmingham
Our Mission and Values
Our mission is to promote community-based development through crowd-funding creative projects that positively impact Birmingham We value community, creativity, collaboration, progress, design and democracy We hope to empower residents, allow people to establish new relationships and networks, promote action and change, foster critical dialogue and instill neighborhood pride
Proposals are evaluated on these terms:
Innovation - Is this an original and/or compelling project with creative merit?
Community Impact - Will this project address or be of interest to the community that is funding it?
Administrative Skill & Feasibility - Is this a fully-considered project? Is it communicated effectively? Is it feasible? Can the designer or group execute the project based on the description?
If selected, finalists will be notified They will prepare their final Bham FEAST presentation, and agree to make a presentation in person on October 25
We send our regrets to those not chosen and invite the selected participants to present their proposals at FEAST Of course, anyone can still attend the dinner and help choose the final funded project
The Dinner and Voting Process
At Bham FEAST, patrons will pre-purchase a dinner ticket for which they receive a locally sourced, farm-to-table style dinner and a ballot to vote on the night’s presentations
At the event, each finalist has up to 8 minutes to present their idea and answer a few questions from attendees There will be time as well for attendees to review the presentation materials and discuss the proposed project with the finalist(s) behind each idea
After the presentations, attendees cast their ballot for their favorite project The votes are counted and, at the end of the night, the finalist who receives the most votes is awarded a grant to carry out the proposed project
The grantee has four months to carry out the project A party to launch the project will be scheduled for spring 2015
