It’s time for SOUP!

After a few months of planning, searching and twisting many arms, we have the right people to kick-start the first Aberdeen SOUP project. A SOUP project? what is that I hear you say! Based on the very successful and long running Detroit SOUP  Aberdeen SOUP is a community crowdfunding dinner to give some much needed micro-funds back into the community to fund ideas from anyone who wants to apply to pitch for some cash and being supported by two amazing local you people Chris Burnett from Surge Aberdeen and Lara Bishop from Foodstory

We are looking forward to hearing stories and pitches from a wide range of people who want to do amazing things in my adopted city of Aberdeen. I’m excited!!! I hope you are too.

Don’t forget -Sunday evening,  November 20th 6pm at Foodstory Cafe in Aberdeen, full event details to come soon.

Look forward to seeing you there.

 

Connect, Eat, Vote! Its time for SOUP!

Detroit SOUP,  where it all began, is a micro granting dinner celebrating and supporting creative projects. For a suggested donation of a $10 attendees receive soup, bread and a vote and hear from four presentations ranging from art, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and more.

We are looking to follow in the footsteps of Detroit and  closer to home Edinburgh Soup and Stirling SOUP to bring this innovative project to Aberdeen. Watch this space, we are working very hard on getting this up and running in Aberdeen soon. If you would like to get involved please email the team –  aberdeensoup@gmail.com
