The Basics

It means that you take on responsibility to creating an event in the spirit of The Feast: welcoming, curious, and open.

You would also be responsible for:

  • Securing a venue for each event
  • Finding and curating local speakers who are experts on the event theme
  • Finding and covering the cost for dinner for your event
  • Inviting guests to and promoting your event
  • Documenting and sharing your event online

The ideal outcome is an exchange of perspectives, ideas, and imagination between people who normally wouldn’t meet. It’s permission to start re-imagining what the future could look like both for your city and yourself, and forming the collaborations that could eventually make it happen. We do not track or force projects to come out of dinners; we trust that with the right spirit, framing, and opportunity initiatives will emerge.

We thought you’d never ask! Our Mexico City hub always pushes the boundaries, and in 2013 invited leaders from government, business and the creative industry to a collaborative jam session on the future of Education. Take a look:

About the Events

The Feast Worldwide events feature short lightning talks and intimate conversation over dinner. Speakers give a quick talk one after the other before dinner. Then guests choose their seat with the speaker they admire and continue the conversation in small groups.

It depends team to team, but we have found it to be around 5 – 8 hours per week. We recommend at least two months lead-time, in order to find an ideal venue, plan exciting activities, secure powerful speakers and invite the people you want in the room.

It depends on how much you can have sponsored. Here in New York we partner with a restaurant for a flat price per guest, then charge ticket prices to cover the cost.

If you can’t make the event free (or at least free for your fellow Commons members), we ask that you price tickets at the minimum needed to cover costs. At max, you can set tickets at $65 USD.

We suggest you aim for 20-30 guests per event, but the final headcount is up to you. We’ve seen some great things happen with only 8-12 people around the table too.

Our rule of thumb is that they should be someone who is doing work you believe the world needs to hear about. Is there an initiative you want to showcase? An entrepreneur trying something daring who would really benefit from community feedback? This is your opportunity to give a global platform to a local changemaker.

Great question! Basically, The Feast Worldwide events should be:

  • Inspiringly ambitious: Don’t be afraid to put a vision out into the world: these events excite, energize and inspire others by standing behind a bold vision.
  • Playfully creative: Events are grounded in an insatiable curiosity and pursuit of possibility. They seek out and embrace the new, undiscovered, and emerging models of making the world work better. We believe that life is a prototype, and you experiment by creating.
  •  Conscious of the big picture: Each event strives to connect the dots between complex and diverse ideas, creating an experience that clearly highlights bigger implications.
  • Open, enthusiastic, and utterly vibrant: Participants meet each other and immediately feel connected. They feel comfortable being honest, laughing loudly, and sharing their thoughts. By the end of the dinner, there are be no strangers in the room.

Only during our global festivals. Each Hub can interpret the theme in a way that makes sense for their city. The goal is to highlight local entrepreneurs and initiatives under the theme and offer the community a way to show their support.

Outside of the global festivals, held 2-3 times a year, you’re free to pick your own theme or topic.

You can do a lunchtime meet-up if you like, but then it’s just lunch. Womp womp.

Either way, good eats are a must. It wouldn’t be The Feast without food!

We think events are always better together. Even if it’s an informal group of your friends, a team will support you in all the ways you need. This is the general breakdown we recommend:

  • An Outreach Wizard lead to invite guests
  • A Curation Crew lead to find speakers
  • A Partnerships Guru lead to find a local sponsor
  • A  Make it Happen Captain to find a venue and caterer, and making it all in the spirit of The Feast

Sure are! You can apply to become on of the two different types of Organizers:

Outposts. Outposts are local ambassadors who host Feast dinners to rally communities around particular affiliation, location or issues on their own schedule. Outpost Organizers may host as many or as few events as they want. Become an Outpost for greater flexibility in planning and scheduling your dinners.

Hubs. Hubs serve as representatives for specific regions of Feast organizers. They collaborate with both The Feast and Outposts in their area to ensure fluid communication and engagement. Hubs also agree to host at least two dinners annually in line with The Feast global festivals throughout the year (in April 2015 and July 2015).

We supply every organizer with brand guidelines, email templates, a Trello planning board and a closed group for all Organizers to communicate with each other. We will also check in once a month to say “hi,” tell sort of funny jokes and generally see how we can help.

All of our Organizers are pretty amazing people. Specifically, we look folks with:

  • Leadership skills:  You can rally a team, take initiative and do all that’s needed to make great things happen.
  • Passion: You believe the future could should be better and you’re ready to start from where you are.
  • Motivation:  You’re not afraid to put your vision into the world and see it through.
  • Willingness to experiment and learn: The Feast Worldwide will always be a work in progress and we continue learning how to make it better. We are looking for Organizers who can create the program with us, offer feedback and suggest ways to improve.

Whenever you want! By becoming a Worldwide Organizer, you have the right to use The Feast brand to host as many events as you can manage in for that year.

We do, however, have minimum requirements based on the type of Organizer you are. Specifically:

Outposts. Outposts are local ambassadors who host Feast dinners to rally communities around particular affiliation, location or issues on their own schedule. Outpost Organizers may host as many or as few events as they want.

Hubs. Hubs serve as representatives for specific regions of Feast organizers. They collaborate with both The Feast and Outposts in their area to ensure fluid communication and engagement. Hubs agree to host at least two dinners annually in line with The Feast global festivals throughout the year (in April 2015 and July 2015).

Nope. Organizers are individuals who take on responsibility for each event. It keeps us honest.
