Hackney SOUP

Jan 01, 2019

Who: Hackney community

What: A micro-granting, crowdfunding dinner

When: May 23rd 2019

The SOUP format was started in Detroit several years ago, by Amy Kaherl, to endorse and support community projects that were in need of funding. By bringing people within the community together, she has seen relationships flourish across business, art, music and charity. We are inspired to bring this concept to Hackney.


  • 4 pre-selected projects have four minutes to share their idea and answer 4questions from the diners. Food is served after the presentations, giving people time to discuss and vote.
  • The projects can be about ANYTHING! No restrictions.
  • At the end of the evening the project with the most votes will be awarded the funding.
