More about PopUpPLay:

PopUpPlay is a Philadelphia based company that empowers children to transform public spaces into temporary play zones. PopUpPlay uses play as a tool for sparking connection and promoting intergenerational collaboration. We do this by designing active workshops and festivals for Philadelphians. Key partners have included Please Touch Museum, The Franklin Institute, Smith Memorial Playground, The Independence Seaport Museum, Delaware River Waterfront Corporation, The City of Philadelphia, Frankford Community Development Corporation and more. Since our founding in 2014, PopUpPlay has led several city-wide Festivals of Play and developed and delivered programming for more than 8,000 children, youth and families.

PopUpPlay is passionate about the idea that people of ALL ages learn best through playful experience and hands-on practice. PopUpPlay emerged out of our combined efforts to:

  • Offer children and youth tangible experiences that enable them to become effective change-agents in their communities using skills and interests they have right now (not just when they grow up);

  • Inspire educators and families to ‘risk’ a more playful approach to learning; and

  • Demonstrate the power of play for both families, children and youth participants.

PopUpPlay offers an array of resources, technical assistance and training, as well as programs to help our partners support families and youth to realize this vision and meet our stated goals. Our resources and programs can be customized for each audience and learner. However, program participants always:

  • Experience a pre-designed play facilitated by the Pop-up team;

  • Create new activities in this same space; and

  • Lead and facilitate play for other kids/members of the community.
