DESIGN QUARTER WINNIPEG ANNIVERSARY: POP-UP BOX REVEAL!
FRIDAY, JUNE 1, 2018. 6:00PM-9:00PM
Design Quarter Winnipeg turns one on June 1st! To celebrate, we will be unveiling our "POP-UP BOX", the middle shipping container permanently located in Bijou Park, to showcase what kind of pop-up opportunities can transpire within this unique, re-purposed vessel.
On June 1st, we will transform the “POP-UP BOX” into a mini cocktail bar + lounge area for the public as they are out exploring the Exchange District for First Fridays. We will also take this opportunity to distribute our new Design Quarter maps to visitors! Featuring:
- Cocktail by Cibo Waterfront Cafe
- Lounge by HUT K
- Food by Kyu Grill
- + Live jazz by Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra musicians!
Our objective for this event is to not only celebrate Design Quarter’s anniversary, but also provide the public with a fun space to temporarily set up shop, have a drink, enjoy some music, pick up a new map, and be on their way to their next First Friday stop. As there will be a few other major events + outdoor activity happening simultaneously on this date in the Exchange (check out our Special Events section!), our hope is to create a circuit of activity, connecting the East and West Exchange areas. In doing this, we will promote local design culture by engaging the public in an inventive and interactive way.
[ The overall intention of the “POP-UP BOX” is to provide our Design Quarter members with the opportunity to promote their businesses by temporarily activating Bijou Park. Anticipated activities to take place in/around the “POP-UP BOX” on a semi-regular basis include, but are not limited to, small markets, art production, performance, information dissemination, etc. ]
