West Leeds arts organisation offers grants at live event

West Leeds-based Open Source Arts will be hosting the first in a series of events called to provide an artist, group or arts organisation with a funding grant for their work.

Four artists will be able to pitch their ideas to a voting audience at a live Art SOUPs event this January.

The individual or group that receives the most votes will then walk away with a pot of money that the audience have created from buying a ticket.

Jacob Justice, Events Programmer at Open Source Arts said:

“We’re really excited for the SOUP event. It gives local artists an alternative way to fund their work and it gives our community the opportunity to empower people to make projects that speak to them. It’s going to be democratic and delicious!”

The SOUP event will take place on 16 January, at 6.30pm, where the attendants can expect a delicious meal, entertainment and a chance to vote.

More information can be found on the Open Source website.

Open Source Arts empowers creative, practical action towards healthier, more resilient citizens, neighbourhoods and sustainable futures.

Based in an urban warehouse space opposite the ITV Studios on Kirkstall Road, it hosts a range of regular open skills training throughout the week including circus, dance, yoga, and theatre.
