Join us for the sixth edition of Charlottesville SOUP on Monday, May 2, 2015 at Second Street Gallery. Doors open at 6:30 pm, dinner starts at 7:00pm. Tickets for this event are sold out, but you can use this link to sign up for our waitlist.
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.
Charlottesville SOUP is a program of New City Arts and made possible by generous community sponsors:Albemarle Baking Company, A Pimento Catering, Arley Cakes, Champion Brewing Company, City Clay, Feast!, Festive Fare, Fossett's Restaurant at Keswick Hall, Maggie Stein, Revolutionary Soup, Second Street Gallery, Tavola, and Ting.
