As part of the Public Art Melbourne Biennial Lab, The Mechanics Institute are running a series of workshops that allow participants to examine the values placed not only on market trade but on the trade of knowledge.
Workshop with: Frank Giorlando & Lauren Ferris
The Non-Profit Double Bind: Do the work of running a business with none of the profits?
Through this workshop we will focus on the challenges that arise from keeping a community not-for-profit in business, in particular when running activities that require financial diligence and proficiency, yet are not directed towards profit. Lauren and Frank are board members for an organisation called The Yarra Link Project, a unique startup focused on building a creative, indigenous urban garden along the Yarra River.
Participants please meet at the Biennial Lab Hub, 145 Victoria St, Melbourne you will then be taken to the workshop location within the Market.
