Soapbox was founded in 2017 as a tech innovation centre providing informal education for young people to learn about emerging technologies and use our cutting-edge digital tools to improve their digital knowledge and develop their passions from ideas into realities. Some of the facilities that we have include:
- 3D printing suite
- Virtual Reality Cave
- Game development software
- iMacs and MacBooks with programmes from Adobe Creative Suite
- Dance studio
- Radio studio
- Recording studios
- Open space for workshops and more
We are an inclusive organisation and pride ourselves in offering opportunities to all, hosting a variety of events and workshops to support young people in their creative endeavours and showcase their talents.
Soapbox is above all a community-based organisation, and so we want to provide the best experience that we can for all the young people in this area. These days, there are so many problems facing young people in London and we know the value of a space like Soapbox where they have the opportunity to pursue their creative interests, whether that's creating games, hosting a radio show or producing amazing music.
For this amazing work to continue, we need to build connections with local businesses who are interested in supporting us, so that we can update our equipment in order to maintain our industry-standard facilities.
