Why Pop-ups?


This Spring and Summer you might find yourself asking: what is that contraption The Locals are riding around town?

As part of The Locals Food Hub project we are creating a bike cart that will allow us to pop-up in different places around Conway, bringing out The Locals experience into the community. Pop-up events turn public spaces into temporary venues for markets, studios, workshop and other interactive experiences. The Locals pop-up events will feature local products and fun activities like art and tech workshops, live music and other public art performances.

With the help of our bike cart we will be able to show up and transform any place into a unique and exciting environment where people are encouraged to participate and create. The Locals pop-up events are a way for us to spark people’s interest and feature the talents of local producers by giving them a space to engage and connect to the community. Often changes start with building something small and we think that pop-up events will be able to ignite  the culture of Downtown Conway and surrounding neighborhoods by uncovering the hidden potential of our community.

With your help we can fund all this fun! Click here to help us raise funds on April 2nd through the Arkansas Gives website.
