THE POP UP PRIMER

In summer 2012, Boston Children’s Museum partnered with the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative and the Food Project to create a temporary play space at Dudley Town Common, a 3200 sq ft, triangular shaped park at the five-way intersection of Blue Hill Ave, Magazine St, Mt Pleasant St., Hampden St. and Dudley St in Roxbury.

Every “pop up” operation outside a group’s homebase is an opportunity for placemaking and communication of mission. Thoughtful planning can amplify success, and we certainly learned much from our highly collaborative development process. Download a document that pairs “plusses” of the Pop Up Children’s Museum days with “deltas” (room for growth and change) here: The Pop Up Primer
