Newtown Locals

WE ARE A COLLECTIVE OF LOCAL BUSINESSES IN NEWTOWN WHO AIM TO give back to the community that supports us every day.

RISING SUN WORKSHOP

The model behind Rising Sun Workshop has been community funded to date and was designed to survive independently (for-profit) while mandating to invest back into the community that supports it. The driving mission behind RSW is to actively involve our community in the evolution of the business through direct consultation.

The Café and retail offers an added revenue stream that is also aligned with philosophies around community and collaboration, and when successful will ensure the workshop remains affordable for workshop user.

RSW emerged on the scene through a successful crowdfunding campaign through Australian platform Pozible and from that has grown it’s following and community support from 160 members to over 200 before our doors open. We aim to champion and support other businesses to engage in collaborative consumption as the best way to stay connected to their community and give them a say in how the business operates.
