START THE DAY AT SPACE2B
144 Chapel St, St Kilda 11.30 - 12.30PM

Start the Day Immersed in Art 11.30am - 12.30pm

Arrive early to take in the “Circles of Intimacy” art exhibition featuring artists Maryam Diba and Anahita Diba. This mother-daughter duo explore the delicate intricacy of dots and the therapeutic powers of art. Their artwork is not a simple use of dots to make patterns, it's about combining the roots of their culture with the land we live in now to create something unique. The intricate process of  this detailed and fine design creates a maze of colours where one can lose all sense of self and become immersed in beauty. 

Tour & Launch of Laneway Street Art 12pm

Check out the vibrant street art in our laneway and partake in a guided tour by the incredible artists who brought it all to life. The gorgeous flora and fauna murals were created by a team of 5 artists led by Heesco, renowned for his beautiful silo art work. Also featured is street artist Suki whose work features movement and dances in the suburbs. The murals will be launched at 12 noon followed by a tour of the artworks - please arrive 10 minutes early.
