Dutch explorer lands at F Space
FROM sailing around the world to working in co-working spaces in London and New York, Dutchwoman Sabine Albers has done plenty – and has now brought this passion to Fremantle.
The international photographer said when she came to Australia she saw a lot of untapped potential.
“I was craving to work with and connect with other creatives,” she said.
“I found it really hard when I arrived in Perth after living in Sydney.
“I was looking for things I was used to in Europe, the US and the UK. I knew there must be like-minded people around.
“I couldn’t find them but once I started creating, it started to grow and found other people.”
F Space, operating for five years this July, is an office space that individuals or businesses can sublet on a month-by-month basis.
Ms Albers said she talked to staff at the City of Fremantle about how to engage with people who worked from home.
F Space marketing manager Jason Normandale said the space served many purposes.
“It’s a creative industry hub; we have lawyers, web managers, programmers, architects, creatives with clients,” he said.
“There is a lot of talking and working together with people advising each other.”
