Liskeard SOUP is the town’s micro granting dinner. It’s about bringing people together, having fun and supporting projects that benefit Liskeard and its communities.
The Talent Match programme is taking over the SOUP event on Wed 20th Jun and therefore Youth Employment will be the focus. Individuals, organisations and or groups will need to demonstrate how their community idea problem solves gaps in public services from the grass roots up!
WEDNESDAY 20TH JUNE 2018
LISKEARD PUBLIC HALL
6PM – 9PM
The SOUP model is a powerful tool to start conversations, practice democracy and fund new projects/people/ideas in our neighbourhood, community or city. Established in Detroit in 2010, SOUP is a brilliant way to redevelop, reorganise and reimagine where we live – the projects that get funded are up to the community!
£500 plus the takings on the door.
HOW SOUP WORKS:
£5 gets you soup, salad, bread and a vote.
At the SOUP dinner there will be four presentations on projects centred around a theme.
Each presenter has 4 minutes to share their idea – no technology allowed!
Audience members can ask each presenter up to 4 questions after their presentation.
After the presentations, audience members are encouraged to discuss and debate before voting.
Audience members then vote on what project they think will benefit the town, city or neighbourhood the most.
Whichever presenter gets the most votes wins all the money collected at the door to get their idea off the ground plus the allocated enabling fund, fund.
Winners come back to a future SOUP event to share what their project has achieved and the impact it has had.
