Whether you’re running an art project, trying to launch a brand, or create a temporary space for community activities, a pop-up shop is a sure-fire way to get noticed, and bring something special to the streets around us.
This workshop will teach you how to go about securing a vacant property for your pop-up project, how to set it up, market it, and make yours a success. In the words of 3space – it’s time to look at empty property as an opportunity, not an eyesore.
Delivering the workshop are three pop-up pioneers:
Alice Vaughn of Specs Gallery and 3Space – Having set up the moving pop-up gallery for art graduates in London Specs, and working as one of the 3Space team, pop-up enthusiasts can learn from Alice. She’ll be telling us how she set up the community interest company, how they secured several enormous gallery spaces over the last few months, and how she managed to get 200 art enthusiasts down to their opening night through clever publicity.
Antonia Halse & Hannah White of The Make Market. These two will be talking to us about the pop-up shop they set up at the end of last year in Exmouth Market. Taking us through how they secured a suitable vacant property with the help of Meanwhile Space, and how they set up, ran and publicised the space to make a big social impact in the area.
As with every Open Workshop, we encourage people to bring project ideas down to discuss with the workshop hosts. They will also be lots of opportunities for attendees to get involved in pop-up projects all over London, and find collaborators for any project that you are planning.
This workshop is free to attend for anyone between the ages of 18-30, and will be held at the Open Society office on Chancery Lane.
