Money Laundering is an experimental business outfit for an artist-run laundromat in the feast and famine gig-economy.

Money Laundering

Money Laundering is the outrageous business outfit you wear when you want to start an artist led laundromat. This is the experimental platform for working out a hybrid model combining the logics of social enterprise, worker cooperatives, and artist led practice.

This artist run laundromats main mission is to provide flexible employment for artists when they are in between gigs; the time when you have just come off a big gig, or about to go overseas for a residency or development—the laundromat will provide the artist with paid work. It is designed to preference their main gig as an artist, and provide back up income and support for them when they are needing some time out. When they just want to pay the rent, and do some mindful hands-on laundry.

During 2017 and 2018 we are planning and researching and connecting to make this big thing happen. It’s gonna be YUGE.

Money Laundering is part of a larger artist led project called A Very Beautiful Laundromat.

We are launching the public face of our project in December 2017 at an inner city laundromat location in Sydney.
