DS4SI Black History Month Series 2014

We're excited to announce the 3rd annual DS4SI Black History Month Series. This year our theme is "REEL Blackness" This series explores black creativity through film. It's particularly geared to creatives looking to explore or venture into some aspect of video, film, acting, etc.  In addition, we'll conclude the series with a special tribute to Nelson Mandela.and a look forward to how his legacy can create a "regeneration of liberation."

As usual, it will happen every Tuesday night in February and include good food and great conversation. Hope you can join us and our fabulous hosts and presenters!

Mini-Grant Opportunities @ Public Kitchen

DS4Si is excited to announce two mini-grant funding opportunities during our Public Kitchen. First, we will be hosting an information session for the new Expressing Boston mini-grant from Boston Foundation on Tuesday, October 23rd, from 5:30-6:30 at the Public Kitchen Hub (at Upham's Corner Main Street Office, 545 Columbia Road, Dorchester).

ExpressingBoston is a new Boston Foundation initiative that will celebrate the diverse cultural identities of Boston's over 140 ethnic communities through cultural flash mobs in all of the city's neighborhoods.  This initiative is a small grants opportunity for individuals, groups, and organizations that seeks to challenge and destabilize normalized notions of what qualifies as art, who can create art, how art should be made, where art should be exhibited, and how audiences should engage with art, while uplifting the rich history and identities of Boston's ethnic communities. Grants will be awarded in 2013.

Don't consider yourself an artist? Don't have 501(c)(3) status or a fiscal sponsor? That's okay!  ExpressingBoston is open to everyone.  If you'd like to learn more about applying for or participating in ExpressingBoston, please come to this information session! (Download application here.)


On Saturday, October 27th, Feast Mass will fund one project completely from the donations made towards that night's meal at the Dudley Greenhouse (15 Brook Ave, Roxbury):



Saturday – Feast Mass!

Feast Mass, Dudley Greenhouse,  7-10pm, $15 suggested donation

Feast Mass is a recurring dinner party in Boston. During the night, people present proposals for creative, community-engaged projects that need funding. Everyone votes, and the winner receives a grant funded entirely from the night's donations. 100 tickets will be available throughout the 10-day Public Kitchen.  The call for proposals is open now and will continue until the day before Feast. To find out more or submit a proposal, go to feastmass.blogspot.com. We expect the grant to be in the neighborhood of $700–$1,000.
