About Art Kitchen
Art Kitchen rethinks the communal meal as a radically transparent and participatory approach to arts funding.
Over one evening, four emerging artists share a project, and patrons share a communal meal that generates independent funding to support local artistic and curatorial development.
Connexion ARC partners with local establishments and invites a guest chef to prepare a delicious soup using locally-sourced ingredients. This meal is served family-style and sold for an affordable price of $20 per person. Each patron is given one ballot to vote for one of four art projects they would like to see happen in Fredericton, NB. A popular vote determines the grant recipient; the selected recipient is announced one week after the event.
Art Kitchen is a method of arts funding that draws from entrepreneurial and grassroots strategies to generate funds for new, emerging, and newly professionalized artists and curators. Art Kitchen encourages communities to engage in the processes of art-making and local patronage, as a radically transparent and inclusive fundraiser.
For emerging artists and curators, applying for an Art Kitchen grant is a simple and unbureaucratic method to receive immediate support for a new or continuing project. The initiative approaches arts funding by working outside of possible granting barriers. As an artist-run organization, Connexion ARC seeks to foster the growth of contemporary artists in its membership.
