Recently Supported: Transfuturism
During the capstone of its Arts & Culture series, FoodSpark hosted a crowdfunding dinner party, The Spark, as a way to support local creators, artists, and organizers who sought to actualize ideas that engage arts, culture, and community. With 12 projects submitted, artists presented their ideas to an audience of supporters, and based upon audience vote, one idea was selected to receive a microgrant of support from the revenue generated by event ticket sales. For this series, creators Amber Johnson and Wriply Bennet received the crowdfunded grant for Transfuturism, a photography, oral history, and Afrofuturistic art-activism project. Learn more.
