Sometimes in order to solve a problem, you need to sit down together over a meal and talk it out. Bread! KC — a dinner series that serves as a microfunding source for local arts and community projects — returns for its fifth year on Thursday, January 22, at 7 p.m.
“BREAD! KC is a vital grant opportunity in this community,” organizer Sean Starowitz says. “It continues to support radical, locally focused projects. I would have thought that after 4 years, this project would have exhausted itself and KC, but it has had the exact opposite effect.”
The New Year’s Feast at Morton Hall (3936 Main Street), will follow the same format as in year’s past. Three projects will ask for grant funding, the attendees will vote during dessert, and the proceeds from the dinner will be awarded to project with the highest tally.
For this edition, Ami Freeberg from Cultivate Kansas City is looking to start a
community garden neighborhood farm in the Longfellow neighborhood, 50/50 is an alternative art space in the West Bottoms that uses shipping containers and a vacant parking lot, and the Harrison Street Skate Park is a project in the Columbus Park neighborhood.
