FEAST is a unique arts funding concept that began in Sante Fe and came to Oklahoma City in 2012 through the initiative of two Paseo artists. This micro-granting program, now managed by the Paseo Arts Association, gives five hopeful artists an opportunity to garner the financial support of the community to fund their vision.
A selection committee made up of professionals from the fields of art, music, film, poetry and performance review project proposals and select up to five finalists. Each attendee purchases a ticket, which includes their dinner and a ballot. During the dinner, finalists give a five-minute presentation about their project to the FEAST audience, and diners will cast their votes. The project with the most votes wins a grant comprised of the evening’s proceeds to fund their project.
