A dinner funding micro-grants for creative projects in Shanghai

How It Works

¥50 gets you soup and a vote.


At each SOUP dinner there are four presentations on projects ranging from art, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and more.

Each presenter has 4 minutes to share their idea.

Audience members can ask each presenter up to 4 questions after their presentation.

After the presentations, audience members are encouraged to discuss/debate before voting.

Audience members then vote on what project they think benefits the city/their neighbourhood the most.

Whichever presenter gets the most votes wins all the money collected at the door!
