October Reopening & COVID Precautions

Updated Sept 4, 2021

We’re pleased to announce a return to Open Hours and small in-studio workshops this October.

WORKSHOPS & EVENTS: You can view our schedule of in-studio & online workshops here.

MEMBERSHIP: We are now accepting Open Hours & Keyholder memberships for October orientation dates. Please see our Membership Page for more information.

OPEN HOURS & ZINE LIBRARY ACCESS return October 3 and are held on Sundays, 1 – 5pm, and Wednesdays, 5 – 9pm.

COVID PRECAUTIONS & PROTOCOLS: Masks are required at The Soapbox and vaccinations strongly encouraged. Workshop sizes are limited to 4 – 6 people, depending on the studio, and studio members working at The Soapbox in shared areas will be limited to 4 at any given time. Please stay tuned for updates if adjustments are needed. For visitors, we encourage you to check our website and social media before coming to The Soapbox in case of any last minute closures due to staffing shortages or in case we institute an appointment system for visitors.

We value the health and safety of our community, including protecting the most vulnerable. We’re excited to welcome more folks back into the studio and appreciate your cooperation with our policies.

For the most up-to-date information on our operations, join our email list (and make sure we’re on your safe senders list!), or follow us on Instagram and Facebook.

Vaccines are now available to all Philadelphians and Pennsylvanians 16 and older. To schedule a vaccine in Philadelphia, fill out the Vaccine Interest Form on the City’s website and they will follow up by email, text, and phone with invitations to schedule at an available date and location, or call 3-1-1 to express interest. For elsewhere in Pennsylvania, the PA DOH has a map of vaccination providers here.

Throughout a year of pandemic and politics, The Soapbox is empowering the community to create wherever they are. To donate so that we can reach more people in 2021 & 2022, visit our contributions form. Please consider a monthly contribution if you are able, which supports our sustainability even more.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with questions!

Sincerely, with all the best wishes for your health and well-being,

The Soapbox
