Who Are We?
However, when you visit, in the historic School of Arts building at 166 Ann Street, you’ll notice that we are a business with a difference.
Sporting the motto, “Using our powers for good and not evil”, Bleeding Heart prides itself as a “profit for purpose” organisation. This means that every dollar YOU spend goes into funding charitable and community enterprise.
We encourage and support positive activism, social and economic inclusion, education and self-supporting, ethical business practice.
Bleeding Heart was born in 2008 and is an initiative of the Wise Foundation, which aims to empower disadvantaged and marginalised individuals and strengthen communities by providing business and creative opportunities. Some of these endeavours include Bleeding Heart, Bizness Babes (a program that helps women develop micro businesses), Musgrave Farmer’s Market and an exciting new social franchise Buffed.
Bleeding Heart functions as the epicentre of these activities by contributing space, training and funding.
Bleeding Heart is a “social enterprise hub,” essentially giving people a place and an opportunity to start self-supporting businesses, exhibit emerging art and products and to participate in community activities.
In addition, Bleeding Heart also financially supports a number of external charitable organisations.
