We’re very excited to announce that the Finders Keepers Markets are coming to Melbourne!!! We have been working on finding the perfect space, and have been listening, talking and researching quietly in the background for months now and we’re finally booked in and ready to go. Melbourne will mark the third state in Australia we are now engaged with, and with already a great loyal following of Melbourne designers who travel to our events in other states, we are happy to be announcing our involvement in their home towns and one of our favourite creative cities!
The Melbourne markets will be our BIGGEST event yet, with room for over 150 stalls spanning over a massive warehouse space, with bands, cafe & bar and hopefully some amazing collective and collaborations coming on board we can’t wait to get our teeth sunk into planning this!!
The details for our Spring Market event are Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th October 2010 and will be held at Shed4 at Docklands a quick tram ride away from the City. We plan to run the markets bi-annually with new dates for 2011 to be released at a later stage.
Applications open this Friday 16th July! Via our website, and will close Friday 27th August. We have big shoes to fill! With so much space we will also be opening our applications to art & design collectives using large spaces to represent their work at Finders Keepers Melbourne.
We need your help! For those who are interested in collaborating, sponsoring or getting involved please email your expressions of interest, with full details of any involvement or sponsorship proposal outlines to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay tuned! More details of the event will be announced soon and all of the details about applying will be posted on Friday morning. If you aren’t already sign up for our newsletter (on the right side of our home page), facebook or twitter for updates.
