NYC Lean In Urban Retreat

We collaborated with Mary Dove, founder of Lean In NYC, to conceptualize and plan the first two-day Urban Retreat, a creative gathering for artists, thinkers, and innovators. We brought together 75 women for hands-on activities that included Instagram storytelling exercises, improv lessons, and meditation workshops. To inspire chatting and connection during snacktime, we even built a city-style campfire: a DIY s’mores bar. 

80 inspired women enjoyed 1.5 days of workshops, talks, happy hours and great conversations. We witnessed many business cards exchanged and notes jotted down. It was a beautiful event and a joy to be involved in. Congratulations to our partner Mary Dove for bringing together such a marvelous group of ladies and empowering the community.

Thanks to all of our amazing sponsors such at Sweetgreen, Blue Bottle, HD Made, Urban Sitters, General Assembly, Bobble, Vita Coco, Chia Co, Go Macro, Clean Plates + more and all of our amazing speakers and attendees. 

The theme was storytelling and we explored storytelling through film, improv, branding, stories of founding companies, stories of pursuing passions and so much more. Pop Productions is excited to show the story of the event through these beautiful photos taken by Kait Ebinger
