Join us for the second edition of Charlottesville SOUP, Monday, May 27, 2013 at Charlottesville Day School (near the Downtown Mall at 320 10th St NE). Doors open at 6:30PM, meal starts at 7PM. A limited number of tickets are now 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 with ingredients donated by the Local Food Hub 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, Festive Fare, Charlottesville Day School, Local Food Hub, Greenies, Tami & Michael Keaveny, Olivia Branch, A Pimento Catering, Champion Brewing Company, Home Depot, Ellie Cooks, Joyful Ascent, Mountaintop Montessori, Relay Foods, Rhythm Mantis, Rock Paper Scissors, Skyline Tent Company, Telegraph Art & Comics, and The Haven.
