About The Soup Collective

The Soup Collective is a group of 50+ artists. They write on their website: ‘We are the Soup Collective, lesbians, feminists, old, stroppy, amusing, engaging and engaged in conversation about the things that matter to us. We develop and create work dynamically, from rich conversations around kitchen tables spread with cheese and humus and fruit and cake, and of course soup. We make use of what we have or that others have discarded to create artifacts and environments.’
