Event description
Dundee Soup is a social event supporting local community-based projects and creating new connections in the city.

About this Event

We are happy to announce that the September Dundee Soup is kindly hosted by Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, part of the University of Dundee.. Dundee Soups are run by Creative Dundee and The Circle.

For a suggested donation of £5 or more, you can join us on the night, receive a simple soup supper and hear four short presentations from local people with creative ideas to benefit their community – these can range from art, design, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and much more. At the end of the night, everyone gives their donations directly to their preferred projects!

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 project that aims to tackle local challenges!

#DundeeSoup

If you would like to pitch your project at the Soup, please submit your proposal by 19th of September, 5pm.

About Soups

The first SOUP was developed in Detroit in 2010 with a group of artists’ friends gathered around dinner to share ideas about art challenges, finding innovative solutions and imperfect ideas for projects that were hard to discover funding for. Over the years, Detroit SOUP has moved from funding artists to a wide variety of community members that need a little money to start their projects and the challenging ideas pushed people to think about the city in different ways.

“It’s a little bit of funding, it’s a lot more empowering and it’s even more about connectivity.” – Amy Kaherl, Detroit Soup founder. Find out more about Detroit Soup here.

Dundee Soup is produced in partnership between Creative Dundee and The Circle. Thanks to Shona Littlejohn for helping kick-start the first Dundee Soup to happen in the city in April 2017.

If you are interested in hosting a Dundee Soup in the future, sponsor the supper, play some music, or something else on the night then get in touch – we’d love to hear from you: news@creativedundee.com.
