What is Soapbox Project?

During the summer of 2012, Soapbox Project invited 86 participants to record a short video on their opinions towards the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The video content includes a mixture footage submitted to Soapbox-project.com, and collected footage of visitors to the Soapbox Project Video Booth at Village Green 2012, hosted by Metal in Southend-on-Sea. The booth itself acted as a diary room, privately recording comments made by the visitors at the festival.

Soapbox Project exists as a multi-networked digital index of all the opinions collected during this significant period in our cultural history, acting as a host for the public’s views and opinions in the build up to, during and after the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
