Southside SOUP is a microgranting dinner celebrating and supporting creative projects in our community. Funding for the winning proposal comes exclusively from registration fees. The suggested registration is $10 but other registration levels are available to make this event accessible for all, while still ensuring a reasonable size fund for project success. Attendees receive soup, salad, bread and a vote and hear from four presentations ranging from art, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and more. Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and answer four questions from the audience. At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, enjoy art and vote on the project they think benefits the city the most. At the end of the night, we count the ballots and the winner goes home with all of the money raised to carry out their project. Winners come back to a future SOUP dinner to report their project’s progress.
