The tenth edition of Charlottesville SOUP will be held on Wednesday, June 20 at Meade Hall (120 High Street, Charlottesville, VA 22902). Doors open at 6:30pm, dinner starts at 7:00pm. The ticket lottery for this event will open on May 22, 2018.
SOUP is a seasonal public dinner series to support creative projects right here in Charlottesville. At each SOUP, attendees give a $10 donation 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.
Charlottesville SOUP is a program of New City Arts and made possible by generous community sponsors like Christ Episcopal Church, City Clay, Ting, Maggie Stein, Bold Rock Hard Cider, tavola, Feast!, and an Enriching Communities grant from the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation.
