The third edition of Dundee Soup is here in May!
Dundee Soup is a social event which gives micro grants to local community based projects to make ideas a reality, over a simple supper dinner. The next Dundee Soup will take place on Thursday 3rd May 2017 from 6pm – 8.30pm, at Lifegate.
For a suggested donation of £5, attendees receive a simple soup supper and hear up to four short presentations from local people running community projects. These can range from art, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and much more. At the end of the night, everyone votes on their preferred project, the ballots are counted and winner goes home with ALL of the money raised on the night to develop their project! Winners come back to a future Dundee Soup dinner to report on their project’s progress.
The format is simple – up to:
FIVE minute presentations, from
FOUR local people, followed by
THREE questions from the audience.
Dundee Soup dinners are open to anyone: whether you need help for an idea that could benefit the Dundee community or whether you want to support a local community-based project.
Book your place for Dundee Soup #3 on Eventbrite or if you’d like the opportunity to present on the night, then fill in the short proposal form herehttp://bit.ly/DundeeSoup and we’ll be back in touch after the deadline. Deadline is April 13th, 5pm.
We’re delighted to let you know that Lifegate Tea Dance – who provide a place for older people to gather and socialise and was the first winner of Dundee Soup’s micro community grant in April 2017 – will be hosting the event and providing the soup this time round.
