Join us for the third edition of Charlottesville SOUP, Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at Christ Episcopal Church's Meade Hall. Doors open at 6:30PM, meal starts at 7PM. A limited number of tickets will be available online in advance of the event.
SOUP is a seasonal public dinner series to support creative projects right here in Charlottesville. At each SOUP, attendees give a $10 donation at the door and in return they receive soup, salad, bread, dessert -- and a vote.
During the meal, community members make short presentations about their creative projects in need of funding. Attendees participate in a dialogue about the proposals over a nourishing meal in handmade bowls by local artists from City Clay.
At the end of the meal, each attendee enters a voting booth to cast his or her vote for which project to fund with the money raised from the meal that night. We'll award the grant right then and there. Consider SOUP an experiment in civic engagement and a chance to play a role in supporting creativity in our community.
SOUP is officially hosted by New City Arts. Support generously provided by City Clay, Albemarle Baking Company, The Garage, JM Stock Provisions & Supply, tavola, Relay Foods, Telegraph, Potter’s Craft Cider, Champion Brewing Company, Beyond The Flavor, Festive Fare, Local Food Hub, Skyline Tent Company, Strauss Construction, Maggie Stein, Olivia Branch, Mountaintop Montessori, Hill & Holler, and many more!
