From its launch in the City of Port Phillip in 2013, Space2b has made a big splash running workshops and holding exhibitions. With two successful pop up shops, in 2015 and 2016, Space2b now has a permanent home at 144 Chapel Street Balaclava behind St Kilda Primary School.
Space2b now has a permanent shop-front and gallery providing retail exposure for 50 local artists, refugee and newly arrived migrant designers.
From Space2b: “Our mission, is for newly arrived people to become confident enough to start a small business using their own unique talents and skills, support their family, and contribute to the vitality of our communities. We all have something unique and different to offer, and Space2b is an opportunity to support people to feel important and valued in our community.”
