We have Fantastic News!

Chef Matt Kelley of Mateo fame, (as well as of St. James, Mothers & Sons, and Vin Rouge), has generously offered to hold a fundraising dinner for Bamboo Wind.  All of the proceeds from the dinner will go directly to our fundraising efforts to help us create a collaborative performance installation at The Fruit, Durham’s newest art space and creative warehouse complex.

Matt will create an elaborate multi-course dinner with three waves of multiple tapas that is certain to be a dining experience to remember! Those who have eaten at any of his restaurants know well why he is famous in our area.

Matt’s commitment to local art will greatly help us with the creation of our Bamboo Windproject when in January 2019 more than 17 artists will come together to explore the poem “Bamboo Wind.”  This collaborative project will feature commissioned local talents in the fields of music, film, poetry, photography, sculpture, theatre, costume design and dance for an interactive, multi-media performance installation.

Where else can you have, all in one evening, an exotic menu of food from one of the finest chefs in Durham, a poetry reading about primal dreams in a bamboo forests, and the most interesting companions for conversation about the arts?

This $100 a plate dinner for 40 people will be an exciting exploration of Spanish Tapas with a Southern flavor and will be held in the private dining room at Mateo’s on Tuesday June 12 at 7pm.

Please help us take advantage of this incredibly generous offer. We only have 40 seats available so please call and reserve early.  For an evening to remember, please join us.  Tell your friends.  Pass it on.
