Take the Power Away from the Powers that Be-- SUNDAY SOUP

Have you ever wanted an arts grant?

Does jumping through hoops not excite you?

Well, apply for the art grant funded by artists! Sunday SOUP!

Submit a short proposal, three sentences to a 1/2 page (w/ an image on the other half) to sundaysouphouston [at] by Saturday, April 4th and come to the voting Sunday, April 5th at =SKYDIVE= from Noon til 4pm.

Take a minute, just jot down that idea you've had in the back of your mind that you never had a chance to execute. Draw it- wherever you are- and scan it, take a picture or draw it in Microsoft Paint. Write three sentences. Send them to Sunday SOUP.

Think of Sunday SOUP as grant writer training wheels. Do you have an idea of something fun, and can you draw it in a funny way? It doesn't have to be accurate, just interesting. The proposal process can be daunting, but refining your proposals can take incremental steps, evolving towards professional respectability. The best thing about Sunday SOUP is that it is democratic! It is judged by the artists who submit ideas and go to the party this Sunday, April 5th. They'll be looking for a good spark, not refinement. Have at it!



Forward this to your friends! Let me know if you have questions! I'll see you at Sunday SOUP!
