December's event will differ slightly from our last two Artist Bailouts as we will not have individual artists pre...senting their work, but rather we'll be voting to fund local arts organizations, artist collectives and independent spaces. The evenings participants and potential beneficiaries will be: Slanguage Studios, the Mobile Museum of Riverside Chinatown, Actual Size L.A., Outpost for Contemporary Art, Knowledges, Mobile Pinhole Project and Signify, Sanctify, Believe.
As a special bonus for the winners of this upcoming Artist Bailout, GOOD (www.good.is) will make a donation matching the total proceeds raised throughout the evening, up to $1,000! Initial funding for this event was generously provided by Woodbury University Department of Art History Aesthetics of Deficit symposium and History of Performance Art class.
Here are the details:
Saturday, December 10, 2011 from 6:30pm–9:30pm
410 Cottage Home St in Chinatown
Los Angeles, 90012
About the Artist Bailout:
The Artist Bailout is a collectively organized public meal designed to solicit community-driven financial support and democratically fund new work by emerging artists. This experimental philanthropic model literally brings patrons and artists (or in this case, arts organizations) together around the table. During the course of a meal, participants present proposals for projects and/or spaces in need of funding to community members who have each made a small donation to attend the dinner. The dinner-goers then choose their favorite presentations and, at the end of the night, the two participants with the most votes receive a cash grant—sweet!

The Artist Bailout is also a proud member of Sunday Soup, an international network of meal-based micro-granting initiatives.
