[DUBUQUE, IA., FEBRUARY 22, 2012] Art Gumbo, a quarterly soup dinner that supports local art projects with community-supported micro-funding, is now accepting applications from arts organizations or creative groups for the Spring funding cycle. Applications for Art Gumbo mini grants are available now through Thursday, March 15. Applications are available at artgumbodubuque.blogspot.com
Submission guidelines include the separation of individual artists and organizations or groups during funding cycles. Individual artists are not eligible to apply during this cycle. The first seven eligible applications received by 11:59 p.m. on March 15 will qualify to compete for funding.
Art Gumbo is an independent community-based initiative that funds local arts projects using money collected at quarterly soup dinners. During each Art Gumbo funding cycle, artists or arts organizations are invited to submit a brief project proposal that demonstrates an impact on the Dubuque community. The public is invited to attend and vote for their favorite proposal. A $10 donation at the door entitles the attendee to a locally prepared soup dinner and the opportunity to review all submitted proposals and to vote for their favorite. The Art Gumbo fund’s nightly proceeds will be awarded to the two proposals that receive the most votes. Art Gumbo sessions will be hosted at new locations each quarter featuring soup by a regional food source. The next Art Gumbo Soup Dinner is scheduled for Thursday, March 22, 6-8 p.m. at St. Mark Community Center, 1201 Locust Street in Dubuque.
