Can pop-up restaurants exist as a sustainable, integral, and vibrant part of a city’s food system? The Detroit Pop-up Alliance says hell yes.

This panel brings together DPA members – both born Detroiters and global voices – to share their stories and explore the humble pop-up restaurant as a catalyst for positive forces.
