University Collaborative Ambassadors for Northrop (U-CAN) presents

Ever dream of turning Northrop Plaza into a stage, something funny, beautiful, educational, or innovative? Pop-Up Northrop is a series of spontaneous pop-up events on the Northrop Plaza, created by you!

We invite University of Minnesota students to create a pop-up on the plaza that will provide spectacle, excite, engage, spark play, and encourage exploration.

But what exactly is a “pop-up?”

A pop-up can last anywhere from one hour to several days and must take place somewhere on the Northrop Plaza. Pop-Up Northrop is an awesome opportunity for a student group or group of friends to do something BIG! Northrop will document and promote the event, so it is sure to get some great exposure.

And guess what else? We’ll pay for it!

Northrop will sponsor up to four student-run Pop-Up events during fall, 2014. These events are not to exceed a cost of $500 each. We welcome proposals of any amount up to the maximum. (Also, this money can’t be used to pay people; it’s just to pay for materials and other expenses.)


We are no longer acdepting applications for Pop-Up Northrop this fall. Stay tuned for Pop-Up Northrop this spring!
