Venice PopUp Park: A vacant lot is transformed

into a community driven park for non-profit events.

Project Description: It started at a TEDxVeniceBeach sponsors meeting.  Everyone went around and introduced themselves. When we got around to Dan Abrams and Greg Reitz from The Venice Place Project, they mentioned an empty lot they wanted to do something with. Maria Scileppi, Director of 72U, a creative residency inside 72andSunny, offered her team to design the space. The partnership was born.

"What should we make here?" was the question posed to attendees of TEDx. The overwhelming answer: A creative co-working space.

Objective: To create a community a unique space that could bring the community together.
