What was it about?

We had this Pop Up Museum to celebrate the women who’ve made history in the world and in our personal lives. The event took place during Women’s History Month and on International Women’s Day.

How did it go?

It was a charming evening. Though the pop up museum started off slow (with only 5 or 6 people bringing something to share) it picked up as the night continued. This pop up ran in conjunction with an international traveling women's film festival, LUNAFEST, and a historical bake sale with sweets inspired by famous women in Santa Cruz History. The bake sale was a fabulous compliment to the pop up museum, as both shared stories about women in creative ways. Because most the people who came to the pop up were also attending the film festival, the museum really popped before and after the film.
