The students of Studium Witte de With’s Parallel Curriculum invite you to the upcoming Microfunding Dinner event on Friday 29 March 2019. The Microfund Dinner is a microfunding initiative that provides an alternative funding system for creative projects. Guests are asked to make a small contribution (€8 min. suggested) in exchange for dinner and a ballot. During the dinner, guests become jurors: three select individuals will pitch their creative project during the dinner and all the guests will vote for a project. The winning project will receive the funds raised from the dinner fees. A special vegan meal with drinks will be prepared and served by Parallel Curriculum students.
Unlike traditional funding systems, the Microfund Dinner offers a non-bureaucratic, rapid, and experimental system for funding creative projects. Through the process of a communal meal and collective decision-making, attendees determine how projects are evaluated and awarded, opening up to the public the question of how we value art. The dinner opens up the chance to experience art not as a spectator but as a jury.
This is the second of two events organised by the students of Parallel Curriculum on the same day, see WORKSHOP: Corresponding Racial Identity for the afternoon programme.
