An exhibition about the role local businesses play in migrant communities in Melbourne.
Many local businesses run by people from migrant communities offer more than just a service. They can act as community hubs and provide links to a homeland while also helping recently arrived migrants establish a connection with their new home. Featuring photographs, stories and a documentary, Open for (more than) Business explores the unique role that local businesses play in Melbourne’s migrant communities, from an Indian grocery store in Clayton to an Italian barbershop in Brunswick.
