The Digital Break Room
This time last year we hosted our first annual Holiday Pop-Up "The Break Room" where we showcased a curation of holiday gift options from brands in our community and organized events to bring us together for moments of deserved breaks; offering roundedness and rest during the busy holiday time.
With the holidays looking a little different this year, we took 2020s challenges as an opportunity to find creative ways to connect and make our annual holiday pop-up more accessible to you, wherever you are in the world.
So, we created The Digital Break Room: a unique space we designed on OCIN.CO to support our community and celebrate talent and makers in our collective, together.
THE DIGITAL BREAK ROOM: A POP-UP AND EVENTS
To invite you to take a moment for yourself, we organized virtual events with community partners we admire, offering a break for your mind, body, and soul. We offered a mobility session, a Hatha Yoga practice, a breath work and gong bath, and a sound bath meditation. Each break was hosted by incredible women in our community, raising money for amazing non-profits that they are passionate about. If you missed our events, we have made them available here on our Youtube Channel, so that you can take these breaks whenever you need some time for yourself. If you are able to take something away from the experiences, we invite you to give something back if you can by donating the the charities linked in each break.
We also created a welcoming space on our website featuring a curation of amazing brands in our Collective, sharing our favourite picks for holiday gifts. We hosted over 14 local and independent brands offering products for wellness, good wishes, and even for your furry friends. We also launched a few special product collaborations including our Worldview Water bottle customized by Kinto, our Sani Sprays with S__lution, our incense holders with Ball + Cup, and our multi-chains with bisous beads.
If you had a chance to spend time with us on The Digital Break Room, we hope you enjoyed what we created for you. We're sending you warm wishes this season, and we look forward to another year with you ahead.
Stay safe, stay kind, and Happy Holidays from Courtney and Team OCIN #OCINBreak
