Deli’s event space connects community
A passion to inspire local creatives and help businesses grow is the heart behind an event space at Kent Street Deli, which now has an online booking system.
Earlier this year, Kent Street Deli’s Brooke Whitmore and author Amanda Viviers held a Winter Creative Festival, a five-day festival with topics ranging from coping with downturns for small businesses to yoga.
“There was really good feedback from the festival — this is a follow-on from that,” said Ms Whitmore. The flexible space will be used for a variety of workshops throughout the year, including marketing and blogging workshops.
The event space can also be used for community groups, corporates, start-up businesses, AGMS and private bookings.
There is no charge for the space — all people need to do is a have a cup of coffee and order food. “The heart behind this space is to make it a real community and collaborative space and that’s what we’re seeing happen,” Ms Viviers said.
There is also a range of Women in Business workshops.
“Finding ways to equip particularly women in business, to find ways to gather and to help them learn and grow is really encouraging,” Ms Viviers said.
Ms Whitmore said the space was relaxed, welcoming and offered internet access and a screen, which could be shared and mirrored from your own laptop. To celebrate the new event space online booking system, Kent Street Deli is giving groups and businesses the opportunity to win $500 worth of Christmas catering.
