Popping-Up with the People!

Welcome to the Pop-Up Village

The Pop-Up Village is a site activation tool that harnesses the power of design to catalyze the magic that emerges when people and programs come together in public space. The Pop-Up Village brings together a constellation of dynamic programming in customized buses, vans, pop-up shops, furniture, and other types of mobile architecture and nature.

Place matters, and its power has been taken from those who stand to gain the most from its thoughtful creation. The Village seeks to bring regenerative design back into the hands of community.

Popping Up Next

We will be working diligently throughout the fall to prepare for next year’s Pop-Up Village events.

The Village is committed and excited to continue popping-up in partnership with Mandela Grocery Cooperative to cultivate cooperative economics while providing critical restorative resources for the people of West Oakland and beyond!  Our intention for this brief hiatus is reflection and restoration in order to evolve — the Village is about building relationships which happens at the speed of trust, and that takes time!
