RULES/FAQ

Am I eligible to apply for Paseo FEAST?
Paseo FEAST invites Oklahoma-based artists and creative thinkers, working in all disciplines and at any stage in their career to apply.

How will the artists be selected for each Paseo FEAST event?
A selection committee that represents professionals from the fields of art, music, film, poetry and performance review all submissions and select up to five artists who will be invited to present their projects to the Paseo FEAST audience.

What kinds of projects will the selection committee be looking for?
Some of the qualities that the selection committee will be looking for in artist project proposals include: innovation, creativity, and feasibility. Proposals do not necessarily need to be for discrete projects, but can include specific aspects of a larger project, such as: travel funds for a photo shoot or to meet collaborative partners, rent for a theatre space for a performance already in development, design fees or printing costs for a book of poetry, or supplies for an artist-led community action or event.

How large will the Paseo FEAST grants be?
This depends. All Paseo FEAST grants are funded directly by the diners who come to each Paseo FEAST dinner. The more people who come the larger the grant will be.   Recipients are advised to consult a tax professional regarding the appropriate treatment of the Paseo FEAST grant for Internal Revenue Service purposes.

Are there any “strings” attached to receiving a Paseo FEAST grant?
The only thing we ask of Paseo FEAST grantees is that they return to the next  Paseo FEAST dinner to share progress on their winning project.

If I  submit a project, do I still have to buy a ticket to Paseo FEAST?
Yes. We’re all in this together. Everyone who’s attending Paseo FEAST, including presenting artists and event organizers, must buy a ticket. The ticket helps offset costs of the meal and funds the winning project.

How often will Paseo FEAST events take place?
Paseo FEAST dinners take place three times per year.

I can’t make it to the event, can I still apply?
No — You must be present at Paseo FEAST to present your proposal.

I applied for Paseo FEAST but was not selected. May I apply again?
Yes – We receive many proposals and can only accommodate five per event.

Do I need to be a member of the Paseo?
No.

If I am funded, when can I apply again?
Winning artists must wait at least one year before applying again.
