Creating opportunities

With More Open Studios

The Pop-Up Project was created in 2021 when a group of artists in the beautiful Southern Highlands in NSW wanted to have more opportunities to open their studio doors.

With the success of the first Christmas event in 2021 a collective was formed “The Popup Project”, we now support more than 30 artists and have networking events all year round, and our collective Studios open their doors each June long weekend for the three days!

Journey around the highlands

With membership being all year round Artists and Creatives will be able to 'pop-up' and open their doors multiple times throughout the year. As a collective, artists and creatives will open each June long weekend where visitors can journey around the Highlands seeing multiple artists.

A founding group of Artists and Creatives collaborated to make this happen. With support from local business owner Erin Adams, from EA Experience, creatives can now “pop” up and open their doors all year round.

Supporting Our

Southern Highlands arts community

“Given how challenging the last few years have been, we believe the creating the Pop-Up Project and growing the membership this year will be a success, particularly with locals and visitors keen to support our Southern Highlands arts community.”
