Saba Alemayoh

Fitzroy, Victoria

Inclusive arts advocate, producer

Known for running Saba’s Ethiopian restaurant in Fitzroy with her mother, this young Melburnian founded Afro Hub to provide a safe location and opportunities for artists of colour. After the original Carlton site closed its doors, Saba collaborated with other venues to run Afrohub events. Now it’s time for the social enterprise to find a permanent home where people of colour can share their art. The venue will have space to host lunches for businesses and non-profits, as well as workshops and other events. This revenue will help fund community activities such as dance classes, music, art classes, poetry, comedy and a book club.
