Oakland Stock is part of the Sunday Soup network, supporting artists' projects
one bowl of soup at a time. Diners pay a small dinner fee, feast on a gourmet meal,
and listen to artists propose new projects that need funding. The diners vote on their
favorite project to support and the winning artist takes the money to use for her/his

The winner presents their project's progress of their winning at the next meal,
usually about 6 weeks later. Sometimes success in the art world seems pretty random.
Oakland Stock offers an opportunity for community members to support the cultural
production they find important through Food, Funding, Feedback, & Followup.
Support for Oakland Stock is provided by Southern Exposure’s Alternative Exposure Grant Program.

It’s easy!: Submit a simple proposal following the directions below to oaklandstock@gmail.com
The first 10 proposals that meet the requirements (below) will be included in
the running. Please prepare to pitch your project with a brief powerpoint presentation
(assembled by Stock staff with your application materials). If funded, you will be
responsible for making a presentation to the Oakland Stock community regarding your
progress on this project at the next Stock dinner, approximately 4-6 weeks after receiving the grant.
