Event description

Description

Join us for the next Dundee Soup!

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.

You can take part by either pitching or simply coming along, to enjoy good food in good company and know your £5 will go into a collective pot for a good cause that you will help choose!
