As the Program Coordinator you will assist in the management of the Space2b Retail Space in St Kilda, as well as the coordination, implementation, evaluation and reporting of Space2fly program.

The Space2b store is located at 144 Chapel St and stocks items made by local designers as well as new migrants and refugees – many of whom have been mentored and trained in Space2b programs. The store is a social enterprise, and all profits are put back into Space2b’s work supporting new migrants, refugees and the local community. This vibrant retail space is the engine of Space2b. Not only is it the main source of income for our programs, it is our most effective mechanism for connecting with our community of supporters.

Space2fly is a personalised mentor and training program in design and business development for newly arrived migrants and refugees from mixed backgrounds to become small business owners.   Developed with and for newly arrived creatives, the program is a platform to form connections, get real life work experience and work side-by-side with established designers.

Together we make a difference!
