HI! THIS IS CAKE! FINALLY. Formally known as CAKE ARTSPACE/SHEFFIELD/ART-GALLERY/WHATEVER YOU CALLED US. After many months of soul-searching, and slave-wage-labour, CAKE IS BACK. And nothing excites CAKE more than working WITH YOU to generate exhibitions/events/workshops/publications/your-vision-here.

Currently at CAKE, we are working really hard on putting on lots of events for EVERYONE! Here is the LOW-DOWN for the next few months…

FEASTinSHEFFIELD
HOST: 7 Garden Street. DATE: TBC
FEAST is designed to use community-driven financial support to democratically fund new and emerging art makers. At each FEAST, participants pay a sliding-scale entrance fee for which they receive a supper and a ballot. Diners vote on a variety of artist projects and at the end of the night, the project with the most votes is awarded funds to produce the project. Since 2009, FEAST Brooklyn & SUNDAY SOUP Chicago has produced 15 dinners, funded 21 projects and raised $13,756.
IMAGINE WHAT YOU COULD DO WITH THE MONEY?
Our guest artist: Phoebe Wild, alongside others, will teach you some fun new skills too!
