Dundee Soup will be back at The Circle again for this year’s festive edition and this time it will particularly special because it will be part of St Andrews Fair Saturday. Fair Saturday is a Scottish Government pilot initiative for 2018 which is being delivered by the Fair Saturday Foundation. After Black Friday, thousands of artists and cultural organisations around the world get together in a unique festival and support social causes through their show and events.
This edition of Soup has been funded by BEMIS Scotland via Scotland’s Winter Festivals, and part of the St Andrew’s Fair Saturday Festival. This is a partnership between BEMIS Scotland and the Scottish Government to facilitate diverse, multicultural celebrations.
Dundee Soup #5 will take place on Saturday 1st December 2018, from 11am – 1pm at The Circle.
Dundee Soup is a social event supporting local community-based projects and creating new connections in the city. For a suggested donation of £5 or more, you can join us on the night, receive a simple soup supper and hear four short presentations from local people with creative ideas to benefit their community – these can range from art, design, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and much more. At the end of the night, everyone gives their donations directly to their preferred projects!
Dundee Soups are open to anyone: whether you need help for an idea that could benefit the Dundee community or whether you want to support a local community-based project. Read more about the event here.
If you are interested in hosting a Dundee Soup in the future, sponsor the supper, play some music, or something else on the night then contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
