Become a Sponsor of Your Favourite Market
In-kind or financial support transforms innovation to tradition
Your sponsorship enables Malak Marketplace to operate a well-organised market for 27 Saturdays of the Dry Season and helps turn the vision of its three founders into a long-standing community tradition.
The market does not run as a commercial enterprise, although stallholders, workshop facilitators and fitness/wellness instructors may earn money from their individual businesses. Malak Marketplace is a program of the non-for-profit grass-roots community organisation, Darwin Community Arts (DCA). The market was founded by volunteers and still relies heavily on volunteer and community involvement for its success.
In order to run as professionally as possible, Malak Marketplace uses grant funding and sponsorship money to help pay for casual staff (Operations Manager, Electrician, Security etc.) who must be there on every market day for the market to run. It also uses its funding to help pay for promotional and educational material (website, email facility, banners, newsletter, etc.) and infrastructure costs (furniture, lighting, generators etc.). However much of the work in getting Malak Marketplace up and running – particularly at the start of the season – is done by unpaid, but dedicated volunteers.
What your sponsorship does
Your support as a sponsor of Malak Marketplace can help the market run, create community, encourage organic and clean living, support stallholders and their families, foster local talent in the arts, support Territory farmers and promote other organic and/or similiar minded businesses.
