Join us for the fifth edition of Charlottesville SOUP on Sunday, May 3, 2015 at Relay Foods. Doors open at 6:30 pm, dinner starts at 7:00pm. Update: tickets to this SOUP sold out in a record-breaking 15 minutes.
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, Festive Fare, Albemarle Baking Company, Merkle | RKG, Relay Foods, JM Stock Provisions and Supply, Revolutionary SOUP, Champion Brewing Company, Sweethaus, Maggie Stein, Farmstead Ferments, Fossett’s Restaurant at Keswick Hall and Golf Club, A Pimento Catering, and tavola restaurant.
