The Pop‑Up Resource Village (PRV) is a site activation project led by Designing Justice + Designing Spaces (DJ+DS) and a range of community partners in the Bay Area. The PRV is a mobile village that will use the power of design to bring together social services and commercial/retail resources that ‘pop‑up’ in anything that moves; from converted buses to shops on wheels. DJ+DS and its partners will develop the Village by leading a robust community engagement process that empowers the community to take the lead in its planning and development and incubate small businesses in the community.

This collection of mobile resources will help with public safety by activating unused sites, increasing economic and education opportunities, providing greater access to social service resources and increasing trust in the community.
