Soup’s on: We begin a monthly series stirred up by Detroit micro-grant funder

It feels like yesterday that there was a small group of artists, risk takers, and friends gathered in a storage space above the Mexicantown Bakery to test out an idea from Chicago. The idea was a public soup dinner micro-granting creative projects in the city put into motion by artist Kate Daughdrill.

Two months later, photographer and graphic designer Justin Ames won the first grant of $110 towards his idea of taking photos of Rust Belt Cities. Now, two years — and $8300, 16 dinners, and countless number of connections — later, Detroit SOUP is excited to welcome a third year of projects, ideas, and people that want to help engage, re-imagine, and re-envision our Detroit.
