We’re really excited to let you know that the Finders Keepers will be taking over the Arcade Project at Gaffa from September to December this year.
The Arcade project is a unique opportunity for emerging designers to have their own small retail pop up spaces for a short term, hosted by contemporary art space Gaffa in their amazing Gallery space in Sydney’s CBD. There are 4 small pop up retail spaces that will rotate every month, that the Finders Keepers will be co-hosting.
For designers: This will give you an opportunity to further grow your brand and experience being in a retail space whilst under the guidance and help of us alongside Gaffa. This also gives you the freedom to carry on working outside of the retail space whilst it is being hosted, so you do not have to physically be there 6 days a week whilst your retail space is in operation. The spaces are open to your creativity an empty white canvas for you to make your own!
The Arcade project is a new concept that was started by Gaffa this year, they are currently offering 3 month blocks in this retail spaces. The Finders Keepers saw this as an exciting opportunity to get involved and exclusively offer designers shorter leases of making the space exciting with rotating designers, and helping them bring their work to the next level, beyond what market stalls can bring.
For customers & design enthusiasts: Alongside the Arcade spaces The Finders Keepers will also be offering support with ‘Meet the Makers’ launch evenings and some very exciting workshops and talks over the last 3 months of the year. Stay tuned for the exciting program and more details. It is also an exciting way to bring emerging design to Sydney’s CBD and with fresh new retail every few weeks, as well as Gaffa having new shows in their 3 galleries every 2 weeks, it will be a great and unique place to visit and shop!
