Say hello to Studio Pop-ups, where you can get up close and personal with designers and their creative process!

Everybody knows about the Powerhouse Museum’s Young Blood markets which were launched in 2005 as part of Sydney Design. It was one of the first designer markets in Sydney and the only design market which was presented in a vibrant museum setting. Markets are an important launch pad for emerging designers but as a museum dedicated to ‘unpacking’ design in all its manifestations, we now feel its time to crank it up a notch and give you the chance to see inside a designer’s studio.

Studio Pop-ups will continue to support the work of local designers whilst offering you a deeper and more meaningful experience with the design process. Discover how a jeweller makes each piece, learn about contemporary technologies, processes, systems and equipment and find out first hand what motivates and inspires designers or hear about changes in their field.

Studio Pop-ups will present ten carefully selected design studios – as pop ups. Designers will be selling their products and also offering you the chance to see how it’s done. Each studio will be housed in a specially-designed pop up stall located inside the Museum. Studio Pop-ups is the perfect opportunity to be a part of the design conversation and to learn more about the design process. Where else can you buy your favourite designer’s work, have a go at the creative process yourself and go home with a deeper knowledge and understanding of how it was made?

Writing On The Wall

Live Music
Be entertained by one of Sydney’s most intoxicating up-and-coming musicians.

Edward Deer’s dark, melodic and highly personal sound suggests a range of reference points, from classic acoustic folk to pop, rock, Americana and electronic music. His musical approach has received comparisons to the likes of Elliott Smith, Sufjan Stevens, Simon & Garfunkel, Jose Gonzalez and Kings of Convenience.

Quickly garnering a strong live reputation for his unique, loop-based performances, Deer was selected by Rob Hirst (Midnight Oil) for Vivid’s 10×10 initiative as one of his 10 favourite up-and coming creative Sydneysiders.
