71 POP will be Detroitâ€™s first ever collaborative pop-up retail shop devoted entirely to emerging local creatives. Our goal is to install rotating shops of 71 new artists and designers at minimal or no cost to them. Simply put, our artists will come in and install their shops and weâ€™ll handle the rest! Aside from running all day-to-day operations, weâ€™ll also provide our designers with free marketing, online sales, and a launch event.
To help get the venture off the ground, weâ€™ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund grants for our inaugural designers as well as cover some of the costs associated with running the space. Weâ€™re hoping that with a lot of talent, passion, creativity, determination, and TONS of community support, we can get this thing on and â€˜popâ€™-ing! If youâ€™re down, please pledge your support. Every little bit counts!
