Seder with Fellows in LA!

Monday, March 26th, 2012

Join Fellows Will Deutsch and Jonas N. T. Becker for Seder: a meal-based initiative committed to creating a path for rethinking how contemporary Jewish art and culture is financed and experienced communally. In exchange for a modest cash donation ($18), guests enjoy a vegetarian locally sourced dinner and receive a ballot. During the dinner, artists who have submitted project proposals will make brief presentations. At the end of the dinner, all 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.

Seder is a part of Nu ART Projects, a LA based Jewish art collective, dedicated to increasing Jewish cultural appreciation through well-crafted participatory experiences.

Thursday, March 29 from 7-9pm
