Feeling tired of detached virtual interactions? We are, too.

Upswell Pop-Ups are designed for a creative kind of authenticity – connecting you to new people, making sense of the changing world around us, and exploring big ideas about what comes next.

Each Pop-Up is a little different, and all of them capture the dynamic spirit of Upswell in an experiential way and help us define how we shape our communities and systems for years to come.

Come gather ‘round people, wherever you roam…

As we get ready to enter the final quarter of one of the most tumultuous years in America’s history, it’s worth taking stock of how much has changed in just a few months. And just as importantly, it’s vital that we understand what’s still in motion.

Upswell Pop-Up #6 – which will lead right into October’s Upswell 2020 summit – will consider the rapidly shifting power dynamics in civil society, including the recalculated value of infrastructure organizations. You’ll have the opportunity to hear influential keynote speakers and join intimate conversations about anti-racism efforts, COVID-19 recovery, and the broader landscape for changemakers committed to repairing our society.
