Buffalo Sunday Soup
Sugar City will share delicious soup (vegan and vegetarian!) and other yummy accompaniments. You will generously donate $5 to the future winning artists. Then, while we eat and relax artists will present their projects. Sunday Soup goers will select one artist to receive the donations collected that night.
Soup grants provide funding for small projects and a free show/ing at Sugar City. Projects can be anything such as fine art, print, speeches, campaigns, group endeavors, building a fence, going on a field trip, conducting research, fixing your car, producing an album, media art, cooking, sewing, teaching a workshop; whatever you can imagine using your creativity and imagination and would not be funded by traditional sources. The grants are completely unrestricted and will be awarded at the discretion of the attendees at Sunday Soup.
Please send a short proposal and whatever other materials you deem appropriate to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To be eligible to win a grant you must be in attendance and donate at the soup event. This event is as much about community building as supporting art making.

Groups of artist-entrepreneurs around the country have begun extending the locavore idea to the realm of culture. A tale of how some not-so-starving artists are applying the logic of community-supported agriculture to grant-making.
