Announcement   Space2b is an art and design social enterprise supporting newly arrived migrants and refugees to become financially independent.

Space2b has been running a special program '100 Stripey Monkeys for Acceptance and Respect' a community inclusion project that has involved newly arrived
migrants and community members working together over the past six months to make stripey monkeys from recycled materials.

Using old scarves, well loved jumpers and outgrown children’s clothes these workshops have involved over 200 participants meeting in cafes, schools and in people’s home to make well over 100 monkeys.

Each monkey is named and loved and remind us that everyone deserves a chance to be happy, safe and accepted. The stripey monkeys are for sale and profits will support new migrant training programs at Space2b. Every fifth monkey made will be given to a child in detention.

About

Space2b Design supporting newly arrived migrants and refugees in art and design

Space2b is an art and design social enterprise supporting newly arrived migrants and refugees to become financially independent through creative enterprise, workplace training and business mentoring. It is a unique, dynamic creative workspace that includes a retail outlet, gallery, design studio, workshop, training centre and small business hub.

As a retail outlet, gallery and training space focused on delivering high quality materials to the consumer. Space2b supports the ambitions of newly arrived migrants who are seeking financial and social inclusion, as all profit goes to our training and mentoring programs.

Space2b’s workshop and business hub works with newly arrived migrants who have creative skills and are keen to turn this into an income, whether it be art, jewellery, clothing or household items. These emerging designers work together with established designers, to exchange ideas, make connections, build language skills and become part of the designer community.

We sell as an Australian designer community, in our shop in St Kilda East and online on Etsy.
