Our Mission

  • An opportunity for newly arrived migrants to build on their traditional skills and knowledge,  gain confidence and take their first steps on the path to financial independence.
  • A safe space where the local community, local designers and artists and newly arrived migrant can come together to acquire business and creative skills, build relationships and make connections.
  • A training centre to build creative, business and English-language skills.
  • A platform for independent designers to develop their business, their product, and to showcase, promote and sell their work.

Space2b:  A unique, dynamic creative workspace comprising a retail outlet, gallery, design studio, workshop, training centre, meeting room, and small business hub.



Space2b is an incorporated association governed by a Board of Directors who are volunteers from the local community.  The Board provides governance and, on consultation with enterprise participants, sets strategic directions for the organisation.
