Thank you so much to everyone who came along to last night’s Exeter Art SOUP. We had a fantastic turnout and heard from six really interesting projects. It was great fun to collaborate with Art Week Exeter for the second time and we hope we get the opportunity run a repeat event next year.
We are delighted to announce that Exeter SOUP will once again be teaming up with Art Week Exeter to bring you Art SOUP. Four talented artists will be introducing their ideas that they want to develop and show during Art Week Exeter in 2018.
Last years winner was the amazing Stretch which was on show in Exeter Cathedral during 2017’s Art Week.
Many of you will remember our very successful SOUP back in November supporting Art Week Exeter. The time has flown by and Art Week Exeter 2017 starts on Saturday. I am incredibly excited to check out the work of SOUP winner Sophia Clist with Stretch 2 and SOUP presenters Rebecca D Harris, Clare Bryden and Martin Staniforth at their events.
This years Art Week Exeter runs from the 13th to the 21st May 2017, full details of the weeks program can be found on the website http://www.artweekexeter.org.uk/.
Voters at our very first SOUP in June 2015 decided to fund Headway Devon. They received £195 to spend on updating their garden facilities to make them accessible for all their service users to enjoy. We were delighted to receive an update on progress from them this week and wanted to share it with all our supporters. Thank you again for making such a big difference to your local community.

I was delighted to be asked to host an Exeter SOUP event as part of the 2016 Off Grid Festival Exeter http://offgrid-festival.co.uk/ . This years event took place at the Biophilia Project, Goffin Land, just outside Exeter. The Biophilia Project seeks to host a wide range of activities to open doors onto the wisdom and ingenuity of our species and to relay these creative practices that have benefited our species, our planet and its biodiversity.
We are very sorry to announce that this event has been postponed due to lack of availability of pitchers.
We are holding an informal get together at Exeter Central Library instead to share ideas and plan upcoming events. Please do come along and join us – I shall be bringing cake!
Thank you so much to everyone who helped make our first birthday SOUP at Exeter University such a success. We were really pleased to be part of this year’s Grand Challenges at Exeter University. The event had a brilliant turnout, over 40 people, and with so many people helping out in the kitchen and in the organizing before hand this was the easiest and smoothest running SOUP yet. I was especially grateful to the chief from the Terrace Restaurant who oversaw our use of the kitchen and improved the leek soup with expert seasoning.
Only a week to go until the Exeter SOUP at Exeter University. We are really excited to be part of this year’s Grand Challenges at Exeter University. Thanks to the generosity of the Terrace Restaurant we will be serving up SOUP in their restaurant space. The food is as usually being very kindly donated by Devon and Cornwall Food Association to ensure that good surplus food doesn’t go to waste.
