Many thanks to the sponsors, presenters, volunteers, and attendees who made the May 1st Salt City DISHES a success. Bikes 4 Peace won $1000, which the group plans to put toward expanding the free bike clinics it offers to local kids. If you weren’t able to attend, you can check out behind-the-scenes photos here, or see some beautiful photos and read a great wrap-up of the event here. More photos after the jump.

We’ve had a great response from the Syracuse community about the debut DISHES dinner. The winning presenters, SUBPAR, are currently scouting locations to install ceramic tiles. And last week Briana, Stasya and I sat down with Red House Arts Radio to talk about the event. You can hear the interview here.
The next event is slated for Sunday, May 1. For more details, check out saltcitydishes.blogspot.com.
It’s been really exciting to put together the debut Salt City DISHES. We’ve had some great press, and are expecting more than 100 people to show up for our dinner on the 23rd. That means the winning project will take home $1,000. This is microfinance in action.
It’s been months in the making: Salt City DISHES, a new quarterly community dinner/arts event that aims to spur community development through the arts.
DISHES — Dine In. Support Happenings. Enliven Syracuse! — is based on FEAST. In Syracuse it’s coming together thanks to my two dedicated cofounders and a hard-working steering committee.
Once a season, we get together on the Northside to share a delicious meal, listen to one another’s suggestions for a community-based arts project, and vote on the project that has the most potential. The winner takes home a grant to realize her project – and returns to the following DISHES dinner to tell us about how it went.
Our debut dinner is January 23. You can learn more about DISHES at www.saltcitydishes.blogspot.com.
Thanks to Damian Vallelonga for the DISHES banner!
The upcoming artists’ panel at NYFA — 20 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY — on 7 p.m. Wed., 11/10, made it into the Times. Such great advance press! One can only hope that
people will have such nice things to say after they hear us talk.
