Columbus SOUP seeks to advance art & design and highlight their contributions to our city. We support projects that create objects and experiences designed for aesthetic, emotional, intellectual, and symbolic effect. Art & design are a way for a community to engage in dialogue, contribute to the awareness & learning, drive action, and is a powerful tool for mobilization and activism.
We are dedicated to providing funding to art & design projects in our community and we’re proud to present our fifth art-focused event for Columbus.
As usual, all attendees must RSVP before the event and we will be collecting RSVP payments online, in advance of the event. We will still have our raffle for 2nd place, don’t forget to bring some extra singles!
Join us at Edgeworks Creative in Grandview for a really unique experience focusing on Art & Design in Columbus!
This will be a unique experience for the #greenspoonarmy and we’re excited for the energy the Edgework Creative space will bring to our Winter event.
At Columbus SOUP, we want to ensure that every project has just as much chance of winning the SOUP grant. To help with this, we choose a focusing theme for each of our quarterly events. In the past, we’ve focused on Art & Culture, Community Gardens, Community Empowerment, Women’s Empowerment, Childhood Enrichment, Environmental Initiatives, and Education. We chose our themes from feedback provided by our attendees through a survey after each event.
The theme for this SOUP event is art & design. In 2007, Sunday Soup was founded to help provide funding for art projects in the Chicago area that may not find other sources of support. Over 11 years later, Columbus SOUP is proud to return back to those roots for our fifth Art & Design focused event.
We change venues with each SOUP event and each venue has limited seating. In order to comply with fire-code restrictions, we must limit the amount of people that can attend. To ensure everyone has a good time, and no one has to be turned away at the door, we require everyone to secure an RSVP and donation before arriving at a SOUP event.
We get some pretty amazing sponsors lined up, so we always expect our events to “sell out” of RSVPs quickly. Every unsold RSVP at the event means at least $7 less for our grant recipient… and let’s be honest, that’s not fun for anyone. By giving an RSVP and donating, you’re letting us know that you’ll be at the event and we, and our applicants, can rely on your $7 donation.
We are excited to have Piada Italian Street Food sponsoring all of our food choices for this very special Art & Design Edition of SOUP!
Naturally, Piada will be bringing soup to the event… but we are excited to announce that they they will be also be offering a selection from their regular menu. In other words… come hungry!
We hold RSVPs until shortly before the event. The seating capacity at each event is always determined by the venue who donates space to us, so seating is limited. We’ve found in the past that as many as 200 RSVPs can “sell out” in as little as two days, so get your seat while you!
Be sure to get yours below before we sell out!
