popup.lt has seen the community and its creation as the primary goal from day one. That’s why the tradition of meeting every year before the holidays is not broken this year. We miss all the things the holidays are about: the hustle and bustle, the conversations, the tasty discoveries, the gifts, the music, and the cheer. That’s why this year, we’re meeting in another special place – the Museum of Energy and Technology.
But let’s take a step back and look back at previous special moments.
In 2015, popup.lt stepped into the Lithuanian market business as rebels, introducing a previously unheard-of pop-up event format to the public. The popup.lt initiative was born with a precise vision – to bring relevant, authentic local designers representing a unique aesthetic and values. Over the years, we have built trust and fellowship with the MO Museum, CAC, Catherine’s Church, and Lukiškių Prison. These were exceptional places, with their unique aesthetics and sense of space. During the year of all the events, we also inspired the concept of First time DJs. We invited people from different fields to change their usual amplua and step behind the DJ set for the night.
What will you be seeing at this year’s Kalėdų Pop Up?
This year, exceptional people will also be seen in the First Time DJs format. Still, the incredible spaces of the Museum of Energy and Technology have inspired the creativity of the design community to go beyond this format.
Artists from other disciplines also joined the festive Kalėdų Pop Up event. Lithuanian painter Andrius Zakarauskas will paint portraits of the visitors throughout the event, and all money raised from the paintings will be donated to the Blue-Yellow organization. Mariya Eimanavicius, designer of the Upcycling Freaks brand, will invite visitors to bring their precious items, toys, and other small items they no longer use and make a sustainable and original piece of jewelry together. The Phono brand will welcome you to a musical sound area, and the youthful and free-spirited artist Eva will make real tattoos! And that’s just a tiny part of the creative activities we have prepared for you.
OK, OK, one last sneak peek. During the event, all visitors will also receive a limited edition popup.lt bags.
And if you have ideas and see yourself in a Christmas Pop Up – drop us a line because it’s more fun to create holidays together!
Can’t wait to see you! Ho ho,
popup.lt – rebels in the conscious design movement.
