Birmingham SOUP is a microgranting dinner celebrating and supporting creative projects in Birmingham inspired by #DetroitSOUP
How does it work?
It is a democratic experiment in micro-funding. You bring a dish (if you want) and pay from £5-£10 on the door.
• Four pre-selected proposals working on projects that benefit the Birmingham community (anything from filling a pothole to starting a community business) present their proposals
• Over a potluck-style dinner, attendees cast their vote for the project they want to help fund
• The project with the most votes goes home with all of the money raised from the door
• Winners come back to a future SOUP to tell the audience how their project went, how they used the money and what impact the project had on the community.
