Stirling SOUP is a microgranting event celebrating and supporting creative projects in Stirling and the surrounding area.
For a donation of £5, attendees receive soup, home made bread and a vote and wil hear from four presentations ranging from art, community cafe's, social clubs and more.
Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and answer questions from the audience. At the event, attendees eat, talk, share ideas, enjoy and vote on the project they think benefits the area the most. At the end of the night, we count the votes and the winner goes home with all of the money raised to carry out their project.
Winners come back to a future SOUP dinner to report their project’s progress.
Stirling SOUP’s mission is to promote community-based development through crowdfunding.
We value community, creativity, collaboration, change, democracy, trust and fun.
What We Want to Do:
Empower local residents
Help create opportunities
Allow people to establish new relationships and networks
Promote action and change
