SEDER Recurring Cultural Event
& Art Micro Grant
SEDER is a meal-based initiative committed to creating a path for rethinking how contemporary Jewish art and culture are financed and experienced communally. We host several community meals a year and all funds raised in exchange for food become a micro grant. During the meal, the micro grant is awarded to an artist selected by the diners. Thus, by coming to a SEDER event for a small cash donation, you get to become an art patron and fund a new work of Jewish art.
In exchange for a modest cash donation of $18, guests enjoy a vegetarian dinner and receive a ballot. Artists who've submitted projects make brief presentations and guests vote on the project they like the best. The artist whose proposal receives the most votes gets the donation money collected at the door. Each suggested project must involve the Los Angeles Jewish community in some way, and awarded funds will help the artist create new works of contemporary culture.
