Artist Soapbox is about Empowerment & Connection.
Artist Soapbox was founded on the belief that if we (humans/artists) talk with each other, and if we LISTEN to each other, then we’ll make better art. We’ll form a stronger community. We’ll feel more empowered and less alone.
Artist Soapbox goes deep into the creative process.
On Artist Soapbox podcast, artists in the Triangle are invited to put words around their creative journeys and processes.
Artist Soapbox explores all artistic mediums.
We believe we can learn from all artists. Artist Soapbox is open to the full spectrum of art-makers and has interviewed creatives in theatre, dance, visual, literary, craft, administration, film making, photography, music, design and more.
