DISHES Launches!


Dine In. Support Happenings. Enliven Syracuse! is a quarterly community dinner/arts event that aims to spur community development through the arts. Once a season, we get together on the North Side to share a delicious meal, listen to one another’s suggestions for a community-based arts project, and vote on the project that has the most potential. The winner takes home a grant to realize her project – and returns to the following DISHES dinner to tell us about how it went.

Starting now and until Jan. 10, we’re accepting proposals from the greater Syracuse community for arts projects that you believe would make the city a better, more dynamic, more vibrant place to live.

January 23rd is our first DISHES/community dinner at the St. Clare Theater on the North Side. Everyone is welcome. For a $10 donation, you’ll get a delicious dinner and a ballot to vote for what you believe is the best proposal. The winning proposal takes home the money that we raised that evening, from attendees, to make her project possible.

DISHES is entirely volunteer-run, and survives thanks to donations from the community.
