What is a Pop-Up Resource Village?
Pop-Up Resource Village is a creative site activation project that invites mobile resources to “pop-up”on a regular basis to create a village of civic resources for under resourced communities so they can thrive.
The Pop-up Resource Village addresses the lack of access to resources through the creation of mobile and temporary structures that eliminate the economic and social isolation many communities face by bringing education, resources, and entrepreneurship opportunities directly to them.
In eliminating these barriers, the Pop-Up Resource Village seeks to reduce recidivism, improve social cohesion and increase in public safety using the power of creative placemaking.
