Design Market at this weekend’s Think Festival of Change


Back in August I was contacted by the Billy Blue College of Design, who were busy launching a concept called the Think Festival of Change “…an epic occasion that will feature over 150 free events in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne…(it’s) about getting people to try something new…”

The organisers had asked if I could suggest anyone who might be interested in doing a pop up shop during the Melbourne festival… or could we do a call out for participants ? I saw this as an opportunity for popUPshopsMelbourne to support a new community event – and also to promote our growing band of pop up followers (isn’t that’s why we’re here ?)

It seemed to me the festival needed an experienced pop up operator, someone who was familiar with the process and logistics of a high-profile, short-term event – and one who already had a good following in the design and creative communities. And I so put them in contact with POP IT…. I’ve worked with Elsje and her team on several occasions (they are very busy doing events around town… most recently their Melbourne Designer pop up shop during the MSFW). Like a true pop-up champion Elsje jumped at the invitation – and has brought together a varied collection for the inaugural Festival of Change DESIGN MARKET (opens this Saturday)

As the POP IT event flyer states…”Bringing together some of the most influential urban designers, this Design Market celebrates the Think Festival of Change. Melbourne collective POP IT has curated some spectacular Artists, Crafters, Jewellery and Fashion Designers for one day only ! Set in the hustle and bustle of Melbourne City, the market will showcase the talent and imagination of the Melbourne Creative Industry”.
