Nabolagshager had the pleasure to collaborate with Paco Inclán, the developer of the pop-up café idea. Pop-up cafes are an easy and fun way to engage with your local community and a great way to get in touch with the people living and using the neighbourhood. The pop-up cafe tool manual walks you through all the steps it takes for you to organise your event. You can realise a pop-up cafe with two chairs and a bit of coffee or create a theme pop-up cafe street party. Read the manual and get started to meet and enjoy time with your local community.
Nabolagshager organised a variety of pop-up cafes and pop-up street parties in collaboration with Oslo Living Lab youth and H20, a local high school. All the learnings and the experience are compiled in the manual. The local community's feedback was positive and the organising team was delighted ower creating a temporary happy place for people to gather, meet, enjoy some great food and music and talk to their neighbours.
The idea and the concept of pop-up cafes were developed by Paco Inclán. The tool manual was written by Laura Martinez Izquierdo, Adam Curtis, and Clara J. Reich from the Nabolagshager team. Anna Louise Bradley from Placemaking Europe provided valuable feedback. And Leonardo Zenari worked on the tool's layout.
