Spoon Fed Show & Tell Special
Sunday, 9 September 2012 from 16:00 to 18:00 (BST)
Spoon Fed is a simple soup supper and independent micro-funding scheme. It offers a direct, uncomplicated way of making possible ambitious projects that might not otherwise be realised.
A grant of £150, or even just £50, can make a big difference to an artist, community project, performer or musician. This may enable them to complete a piece of work or travel to participate in an exhibition or
event, but there are currently very few avenues for securing this relatively low level of funding.
• Artists, writers, performers, filmmakers, musicians et al. submit proposals to be considered for funding.
These will be available to view on the website in advance.
• At the event, all attendees are asked to donate a minimum of £5 (cash on the door), which goes into a
prize pot. In return you'll share a simple soup meal and receive one vote to determine who wins the sum of
• During the event each submission is introduced in a brief presentation to the audience.
• At the end of the evening, votes are counted. The winner receives the full amount of the evening’s
donations and will be invited to present the outcomes of their project at the next event.
These events aim to develop a strong, generous and diverse network of practitioners and audiences by offering a platform for sharing practices, ideas and facilitating discussion.
