Edmonton’s NextGen presents MEÆT – MICRO-FUNDING TOGETHER, at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 27, 2011. A project of ENGAGE, producers of the popular Candi{date} forums, MEÆT brings local creatives and new philanthropists together for an evening of short proposal presentations followed by a shared meal. At the end of the meal, all diners vote for their favourite proposal. The winning presenter receives the pot of funds donated by the diners to move forward with their project – immediate funding for awesome ideas! For more information on MEÆT and to register, visit .

“MEÆT 0.5 is a pilot event designed to bring us together for a meal and together fund homegrown projects. By getting together and pooling our wealth, we can avoid bureaucracy, get right down to the meat of an idea and make it happen,” says Carol Neuman, Engage Working Group Co-Chair.

1. Presenters: Apply to have a project funded, present your project and come enjoy dinner.

2. Diners: Come enjoy dinner, experience the presentations, vote for your favourite, and donate $10 to fund something awesome.
