We visited SOUP a couple of days ago.
SOUP is a monthly event in the middle of Mexican Town involving visual artists, performers, musicians etc.
It started six months ago and initiated a quite interesting funding system.
Every visitor gets to pay an entrance fee of 5 dollars.
Artists, Performers and musicians offer soup and get 10 min within the venue to present a proposal for an art work and subsequently claim the amount of money gather during the night.
The proposals have already been printed out and spread around the tables and participants get to vote at the end of the night determining where the selected funding should go to.
Considering SOUP as a fruitful platform of exchange we are seriously consider "making" the soup for the August meeting.
