Creative hub Open Source Arts, situated on Kirkstall Road, has teamed up with waste food charity Rainbow Junktion to host a live stream event.
The event will take place in order to award a funding grant, so that an artist (or arts organisation) will be able to continue their project during the lockdown period.
Open Source Arts SOUP events and community funding events were so successful that it was felt their funding approach had to be adapted for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis.
A voting audience will see four artists pitch their ideas to in an online livestream. The winner will take the prize money generated by ticket sales for the event and from donations.
Events Programmer at Open Source Arts, Jacob Justice, said:
“As the current health crisis presents unique challenges to the artists and creatives in our community, we believe our funding opportunities must adapt to fit new needs and circumstances.
We want to help brilliant individuals and organisations to continue delivering amazing and adaptive projects during this period!”
The SOUP event is online on the 8 May 2020 at 7 p.m. All attending will bebe given recipe cards for delicious homemade soup ideas, entertainment and a chance to vote.
