2021 was a milestone year for us here at Pop Up Projects. It saw us celebrating our 10 year anniversary, and what a decade we had.
When we set out on our journey, we had no idea our small non-profit with big dreams would make it to its 10th birthday – or that over 100,000 children would come on that journey with us.
Nothing could stop us – not austerity, Covid or the tensions of a deeply divided society. In fact these conditions only spurred us on. Because divisions need to be bridged. Because books build connections to other people, places, worlds. Because good words build good worlds.
Children’s literature is magic. Its spirit empowers voice, forges identity, fosters wonder, builds relationships between us, lights up the dark, and kickstarts revolution. These are the bricks that Pop Up is built from.
