We are delighted and honored to announce that the Gifford Foundation awarded Salt City DISHES a "What If..." mini-grant, which we'll be using both to fund a summer event (we're thinking June) and our next dinner (slated for October). We are so grateful to the Gifford Foundation for its generosity. The grant marks a new phase of the DISHES effort, and will make it possible for us to accommodate more people at our dinners and therefore possibly grant a second-place award to the runner-up project!
You can find out more information about the Gifford Foundation, or about how to apply for your own "What If..." mini-grant, on the organization's Web site. The Foundation is also holding a "What If..." film series at Art Rage gallery, screening films about community revitalization around the world. Nancy Kelly's documentary "Trust" screens at Art Rage at 5:30 p.m. on April 4.
