Pop-up Spaces is a YouTube initiative created to support creative communities around the world, and an investment in the development and growth of these content creators in line with the mission of YouTube Spaces: learn, connect, and create.

The first ever YouTube Pop-up Space Manila will operate until May 1 and will allow YouTube creators to learn about video production, collaborate with other creators, and give them the production tools they need to realize their creative goals. They can use the facilities for free.

Through the Space, creators can access all the latest audiovisual and editing equipment to produce original and innovative digital video content for their own YouTube channels.

The Filipino YouTube creator community is one of the world’s most vibrant, and in the past year alone, the amount of content uploaded to YouTube in the Philippines has grown by a staggering 150%, while watchtime on mobile in the Philippines has grown 65% year on year. To support this incredible community of YouTube creators as well as the next generation of local talent, YouTube is excited to be bringing in a physical pop-up presence where creators can interact.

The YouTube Pop-up Space encompasses two studios— one music themed and one themed after a traditional Philippines street with a Jeepney. There is a lounge area and multiple meeting rooms for creators to use. Over the next four days, YouTube will organize events, workshops, and networking events in the Space’s auditorium and classrooms that are open to all YouTube creators locally.
