Request for Proposals

Have an idea to brighten up the I-81 underpass?
Want to start an urban farm?
Launch a workshop series downtown?

Salt City DISHES: Dine in. Sustain Happenings. Enliven Syracuse! is a quartely event series/community dinner that provides grants to public arts projects that make the city of Syracuse a more dynamic, vibrant place to live. DISHES is a unique opportunity to present your idea - and gain funding - at a delicious community meal. The audience votes on the project that has the most potential. The winner takes home a grant to realize their project and returns to the following DISHES dinner to tell us about how it went.

We're currently soliciting project proposals for our upcoming dinner on Sunday, May 1. Presenters will compete for a $1000 grant to fund their work.

Your proposal must include:
A title; budget; timeframe for completing it; where it will take place; and who will be involved with putting it into action.

Please also include a brief (250-word) summary of why it matters and what it will do for the community, and include any visuals or relevant URLs. E-mail the whole package to by April 1st.

Proposals from people who haven't yet pitched a project will take priority. And please note that we endeavor to fund projects that enjoy the support of our city's many different stakeholders. We're not able to support guerrilla art projects at this time. Finally, to be eligible for consideration, projects must be slated to take place in the city of Syracuse.

Have questions? Email us:

Can't wait for everyone's proposals!
