Tomorrow night at Haiku Poetic Food and Art, Couchfire Collective will host FEAST, a dinner held to offer a grant opportunity for artists with creative projects in mind. Proposals have been made for projects that require a small grant to begin. The applicant with the most votes by the end of the evening will win a $1,000 grant. A dinner will be held to offer the community an opportunity to vote on the proposals.
Dinner will be held from 6:30 until 9:00PM and during the five course meal opportunities will be given to vote on each proposal. The first 60 people to register can attend. Sushi, spring rolls and mocki, among many other foods will be offered during the meal and during the last course votes will be made.
