Space2fly is a personalised mentor and training program in art and design, which includes creative and business development, for newly arrived migrants and refugees, which enables them to become creative business owners.
Space2work provides the opportunity for newly arrived migrants and refugees to work and train together in a safe and welcoming environment, either at Space2b or with a local business partner. Through enhancing skills, developing English, and exposing individuals to the Australian work environment, our programs aim to break down barriers to gain employment and provide social and cultural connections.
Space2connect provides many opportunities for newly arrived migrants to work, train and connect with the local community through various activities, events and festivals such as cultural workshops, film nights, fashion shows and exhibitions.
At Space2b, we believe that art is a powerful tool to improve mental and emotional well-being. Our community art programs provide opportunities for newly arrived to work side-by-side with locals, co-create, exchange ideas, make connections, build skills, grow their language knowledge and become part of the Australian art community in a supportive environment. Our art projects and murals have helped to build a new art, culture and cuisine precinct for training and connections.
100 Stripey Monkeys for Acceptance & Respect is 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.
