Mission:
The Soapbox: Philadelphia’s Independent Publishing Center is a West Philadelphia-based space that fosters the creative and political voices of the community. Through providing resources, equipment, and instruction in printing, binding, and related self-publication arts, The Soapbox seeks to empower individuals and non-profit community organizations to disseminate information and creative voices. The Soapbox values art-making, word-smithing, and skillsharing towards a vision of social justice wherein all people have access to the means of production, and learn to produce materials that are accessible to the many rather than the few.

History:
In the fall of 2009, Mary Tasillo and Charlene Kwon met for the first time in a small coffee shop in West Philadelphia. A discussion about the lack of community studio space for book arts and zine-making turned into a plan to open a non-profit. The next summer, they purchased a space just one block from the same coffee shop, and in March 2011, The Soapbox was born. Since then The Soapbox has grown to offer a zine library, shared studio space and equipment for members, workshops and skillshares, and a growing community of like-minded artists, writers, and activists.
