Issue #2:
The Coworking Extra

Hi <<First Name>>!

Welcome to second edition of Jewellers' Coworking Extra!

There's been a bunch happening in the North East of late, and we're excited to have been a driver behind some of it! 

Here's what's been happening since our last edition:

Project 1 - Australia's Largest Paste-Up Mural

In case you missed it, this happened on our wall next door last month...

Project 1 is a paste-up mural of local flora and fauna on a 22m x 7m wall between “Where Is My Coffee” and “Commerce House” in Wangaratta’s CBD. Designed by newcomer Ronan Holdsworth, it's the first project for Wang Laneways Inc., a not-for-profit founded by a passionate team of Wangaratta locals looking to transform spaces throughout the North East. 

But at it's heart, this is a story of coworking and collaboration at its finest.

After a failed Pick My Project attempt in 2018 by Ro, Jason, and Mary (now all members of Wang Laneways Inc.), a door knocker to the coworking space happened to be a new artist to town trying to drum up support of art projects. Ronan caught our attention and, with contagious enthusiasm, inspired a second shot at the laneway transformation dream. In May 2019, the Wang Laneways NFP group was incorporated and awarded $5K from the Rural City of Wangaratta, making the collaborative dream come true. Then, 5 months of planning and preparation later, the mural was pasted on October 26 in a rain, hail, and shine weekend effort.

It's a small example of how coworking spaces can be connectors for people and opportunities in the local community. They are spaces for ideas, creativity, and alternative thinking that can lead to awesomeness, as you can see!

What's next for Project 1? A seasonal, paste-up gallery featuring local artist’s work will be unveiled in Summer 2019/2020. The Wang Laneways team are looking for submissions from local artists to feature in the "Gallery" section of the mural. This will be the first project of its kind in rural Victoria, bringing together local business, not-for-profit, and council in a community-focused project.
