We have been lucky enough to have been given a Cultural Development Grant from the City of Port Philip. The fund is aimed at assisting and encouraging artists and related organisations to develop and realise creative projects. Which is what WE are all about!
As most will know, we love a collaborative project and this one is no different. We are calling it our “Imagined Laneways”.
We have found six incredibly talented artists, from all walks of life, some have already been working with us over the years and others’ are fresh to Space2b. We will be working alongside them to design, create and document a series of wall art pieces in the rear laneway of the shop. The artists are Uncle Les Stanley, Karen Hopkins, Elena Nabavi, Sarika Deokar , Nidhal Altaie and Leila Ashtiani.
These already graffiti filled walls and fencing areas will be covered head to toe in patterns that celebrate a range of cultural decorative arts. They will certainly bring some colour and joy to the local community, passers bys and customers to our cafe which will be opening a little later on in the year.
Watch this space for more updates soon….
