Popuphood is a social enterprise consulted to incubate small business and revitalizing neighborhoods, block by block.
By rethinking retail and its role in renewal we engage community partners, property owners, businesses, municipalities and developers in participating in the global conversations of collective impact, and creative placemaking.
