Event description

Description

Art Kitchen is a radically transparent and participatory approach to arts funding. Connexion ARC invites patrons to gather over a communal meal, prepared by a guest chef using locally sourced ingredients, and hear local artists present their work. Each patron is given a ballot to vote for one of four art projects they would like to see happen in Fredericton, NB. A popular vote determines the grant recipient. The selected artist will receive a grant from the evening’s profits, providing a local artist or curator with unbureaucratic funding for artistic creation, research, and experimentation.

Art Kitchen is a method of arts funding that draws from entrepreneurial and grassroots strategies to generate funds for new, emerging, and newly professionalized artists and curators. Art Kitchen encourages communities to engage in the processes of art making and local patronage, as a radically transparent and inclusive fundraiser.

For emerging artists and curators, applying for an Art Kitchen grant is a simple and unbureaucratic method to receive immediate support for a new or continuing project. The initiative approaches arts funding by working outside of possible granting barriers. As an artist-run organization, Connexion ARC seeks to foster the growth of contemporary artists in its membership.
