Cameron Fuller and seven other brave Sloupers participated last week in our first-ever Sloup Proposal Workshop in assocation with the 3rd Annual Chautauqua Art Lab. The application Cam workshopped won over last night's voters with his proposal to create a drive-in style projection space at 4528 Ohio Street. The space will ultimately be host to experimental video screenings and an on-going short films series.
This Sloup was super-awesome right? (I do think we always say that - but really - especially so last night!)
Gina/VegaDeli, the White Bean Kale and Kale Potato soups were a-mazing! Thank you so much - please come back and visit Sloup!
We had 7 sweet proposals this time - so gets yours in among the mix next month.
Sloupers - look forward to the updated Sloup Archives to review all of the proposals that have been submitted.
The soup will be donated by Gina at VegaDeli and be just down the walk a ways from Floating Laboratories at Maggie and Mike's place (see map below).
Proposals generated at the workshop on the 15th will be automatically submitted. All art project proposals are also as usual welcome until midnite saturday. Submitters, please note the ever simplifying list of questions to answer and format into a one page PDF document.
As part of the 3rd Annual Chautauqua Art Lab, a "week-long grassroots citywide arts festival, free university and art parade," we will run a Sloup proposal workshop for "solo artists with half thoughts" at 1 pm on May 15th (check back at Emily Hemeyar's blog for confirmed location). Let's bring on a new wave of ideas in one hour of getting it out and down. We're even gonna make worksheets to make it easier and more fun, and then we'll enter every single one to compete for the next Sloup grant, even if they don't feel complete! We love this idea because it's that time of year to get overwhelmed by all the amazing things we all can ( AND WILL) make and do.
TONITE WE EXPERIMENT! GO OUT (OR STAY IN) AND SLOUP!
AND TO AVOID TALLYING COMPLICATIONS, ALL VOTERS NEED SIMPLY VOTE FOR THEIR #1 FAVORITE.
TOMORROW, BELOVED HOSTS AND SLOUPERS, WE WILL SEE YOU AT LOCAL HARVEST CAFE FOR THE TALLYING. VOTES & DONATIONS ARE DUE BY NOON, SO EMAIL US IF YOUR MORNING GETS TANGLED.
QUESTIONS?? WE'LL BE iPHONE ALL NIGHT: email@example.com
Sloup is a monthly soup dinner in St. Louis that supports projects, primarily artistic or communicative, that need a little funding and belief. Soup dinners will be on one Sunday a month from 6-8 p.m. Soups will be provided by local establishments, chefs and community members, as well as grant recipients returning to share their projects. We’re asking for a $10 per person donation at each dinner (100% of which will go directly into that month’s Sloup Fund), entitling you to vote on that month’s proposal which excites you the most! Grant proposals will be accepted until the Saturday before the soup (see application below).
