Call for Expressions of Interest

Eat Your Art Out is the annual fundraising event for OV-CAOS.

It began in 2015 as a way to address the sometimes difficult transition from autumn into winter during the month of November. We celebrated and honoured November by hosting a six-course meal, artfully designed by local cooks using local ingredients. Each course was accompanied by music, costume and poetry. Since 2015, this annual event has expanded into a full bodied, multi-media extravaganza of astonishing collaboration and creativity.

In 2019 we will be returning to our original concept of celebrating the month of November by exploring the concept of transition as our main focus. This year’s version will maintain a similar structure as previous Eat Your Art Out events, but this time the six courses will be cocktails and finger food, plus the focus will be on a fashion show featuring wearable artwork accompanied by sound pieces.
