  • Demystify some of the jargon around digital media, graphic design, film and marketing.

We’re passionate about supporting new ideas and creating a community of support with likeminded people. By breaking barriers between professionals and those just starting out, Soap Box aims to be a hub of support as well as learning.

So, whether you’re finding your feet or you’ve already set out on your journey – if you’re a small business, an activist, a freelancer or a campaigner: it’s time to step on up to your Soap Box!

All sessions will be facilitated via video conferencing due to restrictions enforced by the pandemic.
