Please see a public invitation to the Future Canvas launch party below.

You are invited to the sustainability party of the year! Future Canvas will be holding a launch party at Shed 4 in the Docklands (Future Canvas’ new Headquarters!) on Friday the 8th of May! There will be a fashion show, DJ, sustainable catering and a lot of wonderful and interesting people to mingle with!

On Sunday the 17th of May there will be a Garden and Space Blitz being held at the Future Canvas HQ to help kick-start our Reforestation Project. Future Canvas’ Reforestation Project involves creating a community garden in the Docklands on a 350 square metre space! The project aims to promote and advance urban agriculture in Metropolitan Melbourne.  During the Garden and Space Blitz we will be designing and creating the beginnings of the community garden (see attached artists impression!). Additionally, there will be opportunities to learn all sorts of sustainable day-to-day skills from permaculture, composting, clothes swapping, making bike trailers, painting canvas’ and designing furniture from waste materials.
