Kickstarter: Save an iconic creative space
Hot on the heels of the success of Lucky Chan's, Perth's first crowd-funded restaurant in Northbridge, now one of Perth's iconic creative spaces - Studio 2 - is needing public support to keep it open.

Studio 2 in Leederville is an art space and photography studio available to Perth creatives whether it is staging an art show, filming an advert, putting on a fashion show or exhibiting art.

A risk of closing down, $11,000 is needed by July 26th to secure a long term lease and continue renovating the space and making it an international drawcard.

Pledges start at as little as $2 all the way up to an $8,000 full wedding package for up to 75 guests including styling, catering and a bar.

You don't necessarily have to be an artist to support this Kickstarter campaign. Pledges of $2,000 will win you this unique space for a catered private function for 75 guests think end of year Christmas party, surprise birthday, or corporate gathering.

A pledge of $1,000 will win you a fully functional and beautifully designed website package including one year of hosting and four hours of stunning photography to help set up your new business or blog.

One of the most unique rewards is for pledges of $500 where you will have the rare opportunity to be an assistant on an editorial fashion shoot with a model from one of Perth's leading agencies. You will learn trade secrets and have the opportunity to take your own photos with the model during the session (only two packages available).

Smaller pledges are also available including a session with a photographer (for family portraits or blog styling) at $300 and various pledges which will allow you use of the space for between 2 hours and a full day (10 hours).

Pledges will only be available (and the money collected) if the full $11,000 is pledged by July 24, 2015. So if you see a reward you really like, you need to encourage friends and family to pledge as well to ensure the full amount is raised.

This is one of limited-time-only opportunities, so share this article and let everyone know or Perth is at risk of losing another great venue for artists and musicians.
