What is Soup N’at?

Anqwenique Wingfield emcees Soup N'at

 

Stay tuned for details on our next Soup N’at in February 2019!

You don’t need to wait to apply! The Soup N’at application is always open, so get your idea in the queue.

Soup N’at uses the Sunday Soup model of community fundraising. Artists of any art form may submit a project proposal. A jury reviews those proposals and chooses a few projects to be presented during the Soup N’at dinner. Guests come to enjoy tasty soup from local chefs, the artists present their proposals, and then guests cast ballots for their favorite. The artist with the most votes takes home the night’s proceeds.

Each guest donates $10 (in cash at the door) and receives:

  1. A delicious meal of soup made by local Pittsburgh restaurants
  2. Free beer from a local Pittsburgh brewery
  3. Sides like bread from a local bakery and a sweet snack
  4. Awesome entertainment featuring up and coming musicians, poets, and more
  5. A vote for one local artist

How is this even possible?!?

Our communities are second to none. Soup N’at is more than just soup, it’s what happens when bakeries, restaurants, musicians, poets, artists, and hungry people all come together for a common cause: Supporting an awesome local artist to achieve something great.

“Hey, I’m an awesome local artist!”

Well, what are you waiting for? Apply! We’ll review your application and if we can fit it on the ballot, you’ll become a part of Soup N’at history! Think your idea might be a little out there? Apply anyway. Crazy stuff happens.

Soup N’at is organized with support from Union Project and an amazing crew of volunteers.
