'Our Beautiful Ukraine exhibition' hosted by Space2b and Create for Ukraine is an exploration of the power and beauty of Ukraine. Eight Ukrainian artists based in Melbourne, Hobart, Prague and Vyshhorod share their art of hope, peace, and beauty. All artists have unique styles, genres, and techniques—expertly blending modern trends and Ukrainian ethnic traditions. The works demonstrates the vastness and depth of Ukrainian art. Please join our opening for the inspirational exhibition 

Additionally, we will be launching the “Next Door Artisans” products here at Space2b mid-month, just in time for Refugee Week in June. This range is the result of our work with the Karen Group, refugees from Myanmar. We’ve been honoured to work with this wonderful group, helping them to develop their creative identities and use their skills to produce beautiful products. We’ve also been fortunate enough to meet a dedicated and skilled group of mentors as well as the Wyndham Park Community Centre, also committed to supporting and welcoming refugees.
