A Conference on "The New Normal" for Creative Professionals

Feast Miami – Dinners that Micro-fund Arts Ventures

Raising capital for your budding business just became delicious. FEAST Miami, a grassroots organization is cooking up an arts revolution, holding vegan dinners that micro-fund arts ventures—And chef Loren Pulitzer is the one behind the scenes, cooking up the revolution.

Here’s how it works: you and your friends pay what you can to sit down for a vegan dinner at a leading Miami arts venue. Local artists then pitch their project or business to the crowd. After the meal, you have the chance to vote for your favorite proposal. The winning artist goes home with the proceeds of the dinner as seed money.

“It’s hard to get funding for individual artists and even for small arts organizations,” says FEAST Miami Co-founder Susan Caraballo, “We’re offering something to fill that niche.”
