Sunday Soup Reboot and Co-Prosperity Beer Release


September 22nd

Co-Prosperity Sphere

Admission is $5-$15

3 to 5 PM

Sunday Soup is a community fundraising meal project initiated by InCUBATE (Abigail Satinsky, Bryce Dwyer, Roman Petruniak & Matt Joynt) and others in the Chicago art community, which was in operation from 2007-2010. It was a grassroots project to generate funds for artist initiatives and community projects through a grant raised by the meal. It inspired over 60 chapters across the world, all doing their own variations of the soup model.

For each meal, chefs and friends prepare a soup and accompanying dishes using local ingredients. The money from ticket sale becomes a grant. Diners vote on proposals for creative projects that are displayed at the meal. The project that gets the most votes is awarded the money.

This weekend's soup will be prepared by Won Kim of Kimski Chicago. Abby Satinsky & Matt Joynt will be there on behalf of the InCUBATE crew. The meal will also serve as a soft launch for Marz Brewing's Co-prosperity Beer — profits from the beer will fund an ongoing grant for art & activism projects. In true togetherism spirit, we need you to show up to help determine how to distribute the beer grant money in a way that best serves the community.

PROJECT PRESENTATIONS & PROPOSALS will be made by Marimacha Monarcha Press, Rebirth Garments/Radical Visibility Collective, Project Fielding & More.
