Your weekly journey into deep space

23 Jan, 2019


If you’re reading this it’s because you’ve chosen to join us as we go a bit deeper into the weekly world of spaces, places, small business, culture, retail and all of the above.

The new year has started strong, with some exciting projects developing and for which we’ll be taking expressions of interest in the not-too-distant future… stay tuned. Otherwise we have some availabilities at both MANY North Freo, for the power-tool inclined, and at Heathcote, for those who enjoy a river view with their light-filled workspace. See link to details below.

Also, now that you’re here, know we’re not interested in having a one-way conversation and would love to hear from you on events and goings-on that might be of interest to our expanding community. Please pass this on as well— if you have a friend who’s an archi-nut, owns a big vacant building, is looking for a new year workspace, or just likes to keep an eye on all the things then point them our way. Sign-up is via the pop-up on our website.

Spacemarket is, as always, looking forward to another year of sourcing and pairing disused spaces with a whole heap of useful people. Great to have you with us on the journey.

See you in your inbox!

Freo’s been getting all types of a wrap this last week but we’ll be heading in this weekend to go celebrate and support at Sunday’s One Day festival and while we’re there, to check out a few more goings on around town.

Greg Molloy – Fragmented Singularities at Smart Casual MANY 2.0

"I am a film maker, animator, Furniture fabricator, performance artist and contemporary puppeteer. In my practice I combine these forms into immersive interactive installations that consists of performance, film and kinetic sculptures. I am currently in the process of completing my Bachelor of Arts at Curtin University. My work is heavily inspired by the mechanics of surrealism in absurd theatre, to create a sense of delving into a distorted precariousness of an unknown mythos within the atmosphere of the space." - Greg Molloy

We’ll use this section to share some useful info we’ve come across the last week from you, our tenants, and the www.

+ With 97% of businesses in Australia being of the small variety (employing less than 19 people), it’s interesting that the Australian Bureau of Statistics reports that 60% of small businesses cease operating within three years of kicking off. So, if you’ve recently taken the jump into small bizz (or could do with a refresh on the fundamentals) we thought the FREE ‘Starting a Business’ courses at the Small Business Development Corporation wouldn’t be the worst use of your time…

+ A Little Ray of Sunshine – No matter what stage your small business is at everyone needs a little bit of sun on their face after all the screen time. Which is where these guys come in. Getting you off the computer and talking about your business; “We work with you to upgrade business positioning, understand core capabilities, ideal clients, market opportunities, pricing, business development, systems and processes, people, teams, leadership and culture.” Go have a look if it sounds like the breath of fresh air your business needs going into this new year.

+ If you’ve been anywhere in the world recently here’s an interesting article on tourism from Der Spiegel last year – ‘How Tourists Are Destroying the Places They Love

+ There’s a lot going on in Freo of late, much to discuss, much to work on. If you’re interested, did you read the Fremantle 2029: Transformational Words proposal? Give it a browse if you’ve got a mo.
