Debate and discuss life and art, for people near or beyond the age of 60

Can we really appreciate art online? How does engaging with art online compare to real life? How fulfilling are remote connections in a time of forced separation?

As we emerge from lockdown and embrace our new 'normal', NND, Producer/Presenter of The Workplace radio show on Resonance 104.4FM, reflects on: making connections – is online art the antidote to loneliness, lockdown and isolation?

This special Soapbox session will be recorded and broadcast on community arts radio station Resonance 104.4FM. All recorded content will be anonymised, and those not wishing to be included on the radio broadcast can opt-out at any time.

What is Soapbox?

Soapbox is a peer-led session for people near or beyond the age of 60 to meet up and share views on life and art through topical discussion and debate. Each Soapbox meeting explores a range of art and artists from Tate's collection. Joining Soapbox will challenge your thinking and allow you to say what you feel in a supportive and friendly group.​

​ In light of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Soapbox will take place online until early 2021.
