Supporting home-grown talent
It can be difficult to turn a creative passion into a sustainable business as big global brands expand and rental space & promotional costs rise. That’s why we exist. Pop Ups recognizes the needs of artists, designers, bakers and makers striving to make their mark, providing them with an opportunity to raise their profile and get their name out there.
Pop Ups are funded by sponsors to produce exciting, professionally designed markets with full-blown publicity and advertising support, at just a tiny cost to our stallholders.
Pop Ups is also dedicated to supporting the communities in which their work is showcased. Not only are the markets a fun way to spend a Saturday or Sunday arvo, they also seek to introduce local residents to businesses and innovators from their own neighbourhood. And best of all, each event has its own social aspect designed to raise the profile of non-profit organisations within the community.
Bringing empty spaces to life
We believe that empty development sites, car parks, roof tops and laneways are a waste of space! It’s our passion to bring them to life, and what better way to do that than to host markets, events and exhibitions that support local communities and creative micro-businesses?
