Back on June 22, 2009, Le Cool Dublin wrote, “Expect to hear a lot more in the coming months about the idea of Pop-Ups. Once the preserve of books, Bosco and online adverts that try too hard, this concept is about to find a new home, albeit an ephemeral one, in this city. And it isn’t surprising to hear the words “unused retail space” in conjunction with this either…”
12 years later and we’re anticipating the resurgence of Pop-Ups 2.0 as the city attempts to realign its spaces with the newfound needs of its, post-pandemic, citizens. The prototyping of concepts can flourish again.
Meanwhile, We Make Good continues with their mission to “collaborate with Irish designers and social enterprises around the country to make beautiful products that create meaningful employment for people from disadvantaged backgrounds.”
