The Last Supper began in 2005 as a series of intimate dinner gatherings of emerging creative voices sharing their work in an environment of critical, open dialog in the context of current global and local concerns. Culminating in a cornucopia of shared projects and experimental work, the inaugural festival highlighted the crux of seasonal change with the last outdoor celebration before the shearing Winter, and the harvest of Summer’s work. During a quaint Brooklyn backyard BBQ, apple bobbing, dancing, multimedia, and a sense of community and informality were served up with experimental works in progress from several artistic disciplines. The value of critical insight from an audience of peers was shared by members of differing cultural, educational, and creative backgrounds. Relationships and collaborative partnerships sprung from this exploration of social creative practice. Themes of consumption, change, personal narrative, creative conscience, aesthetic living and storytelling sparked a rigorous momentum by the collective of artists to develop throughout the year.
