Mandurah Soup February 2017

About This Project

Mandurah Soup has a simple goal: to give someone an envelope stuffed with money, so they can go and do that thing they always wanted to do, to make their neighbourhood a better place!

Time:  Tuesday  7th February 2017 6:00pm to 9:00pm
Location: At Make Place
Prize: $3000
Free Light Meal (SOUP!) Provided

Voting Criteria:

    – Vibrancy and place activation
    – Community building
    – Viability
    – Relevance
    – Clarity

To do this, we bring together people who share a desire for a better community. They get to meet people and share their ideas and their resources. Connections are made, people feel empowered, and hopefully we instill some local pride.

The concept is simple: we host a regular social event, which has a modest entry fee. The purpose of the evening is to let four people pitch an idea to improve their local community and activate their city centre spaces to members of that same community.

The people pitching ideas can’t talk for more than 4 minutes, and they definitely can’t use Power Point (because it’s boring). Props are allowed, though. The audience then gets to ask the person pitching four questions and…that’s it.

With the presentations out the way, soup is served, people mull over the ideas – and then they vote on their favourite. At the end of the night, the winner gets to take home their cash prize and put their plan into action.

Briefing session for those interested in submitting proposal is Tuesday 10 January 2017  5:30pm to 6:30pm at make place – like an ideas workshop where we can help them refine ideas and ask questions

Applications close at 11:59pm on the Tuesday, 31 January 2017!
