In this event, hosted by Derek Blasberg, the head of fashion and beauty at YouTube, a lot of discussions and tips were shared regarding skin health and mental issues. Similarly, YouTube keeps organizing Pop-up events for its users.

YouTube has been organizing workshops, events, and programs to increase the reach of as many creators as they can. Since these events and workshops were organized in physical locations, the audience reach was limited, and YouTube decided to close down certain spaces permanently.
