Everybody pays a fiver*. All the fivers go into the pot for funding the winning projects selected by the audience. The first prize is over £500. A second prize depends upon ticket sales so buy one now and help make good things happen!

This is a rare opportunity to discover and support great people with interesting ideas for tackling mental health in our local communities.

Apply to pitch at #danSOUP May 2021

Have you got an idea for using arts activities to enhance mental health or tackle specific mental health issues in Derbyshire or Nottinghamshire? Anyone can apply to pitch as long as you are based in one of the counties. We particularly encourage individuals who haven't previously had funding or the experience of applying for funding. For the May 2021 event we are also encouraging ideas that help with the challenges of Covid 19. The deadline for applications to pitch is noon Friday April 16th 2021.

How to join #danSOUP online on the night

#danSOUP is an online event using zoom. You will receive a link and instructions on how to join the event shortly before. It is quick and easy to join and help is on hand at 6.45 pm before the event starts at 7pm. Your link will be sent to the email you have used to purchase your ticket and this will automatically give you a vote. If you purchase more than one ticket for people to watch with you, your additional people will be able to vote by text. (1 ticket = 1 vote, but only 1 vote/person)

#danSOUP Lockdown e-cookbook

When we are able to meet in a bricks and mortar venue THiNK gives a free bowl of soup to everybody attending. Instead we'll email every ticket buyer an e-book of fabulous soup recipes from friends and local cafes and food businesses.

#SOUP events happen twice a year in May and October during Mental Health Awareness Weeks

Details of previous events, winners and #danSOUP recipes are here
