(Social networking Opportunity to Unite Projects with funding in the town)
Broch Soup is based on a concept started in Detroit in 1995 and is a micro granting dinner celebrating and supporting community and creative projects in Fraserburgh and Aberdeenshire. For a donation £5 attendees receive food and a vote and hear up to four presentations ranging from art, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and more.
Each presenter has five minutes to share their idea and answer three questions from the audience. At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, enjoy some entertainment and vote on the project they think will benefit the local area the most. At the end of the night,
the ballots are counted and winner goes home with all of the money raised on the night to carry out their project.
Winners come back to a future SOUP dinner to report their project’s progress.
The SOUP projects are starting to make their way across the Atlantic with two successful SOUP projects in both Edinburgh and Stirling. The video links highlight the evolution of the original Detroit SOUP and how Edinburgh locals have embraced the concept to make it their own. Detroit SOUP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXmINnWAGpw
