The Social Studio: Social change through design

Give a young person a go!


Many young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds face significant barriers to accessing education and employment including:  interrupted or lack of schooling, lack of English language, lack of support with homework and lack of work experience opportunities and support networks in Australia.


The Social Studio breaks down these barriers by providing a safe, supportive and creative environment for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds to gain work experience and qualifications, express their creativity, gain industry contacts, meet new friends and build their confidence as they create a new life in Australia. 



Our programs include:


- Work experience in fashion, design and retail industries


- Accredited TAFE training delivered on site in clothing production, textiles and design and hospitality


- Social sewing programs


- Education and career pathway support and programs (including providing employment opportunities at The Social Studio)


- Social support and life skills programs (i.e. healthy living program, computer skills, financial literacy, English for work etc.)


- Events, fashion shows, exhibitions and other creative projects that encourage participation, community, self-confidence and self-expression
