The Social Studio
The Social Studio is a not-for-profit social enterprise providing work and learning opportunities to refugee and new migrant creatives. We are an ECA-accredited manufacturer, socially-conscious retailer and free fashion school, all in one.

Established in 2009, The Social Studio is a recognised leader in arts-based social enterprise. We offer free training in garment-making to people from refugee and new migrant backgrounds through our education partner RMIT, delivering Cert III and pre-accredited programs within a flexible and supportive learning environment.

Our school shares space with our ECA-accredited manufacturing studio, giving students first-hand exposure to the industry as well as the opportunity for paid internships with our talented team of makers. We offer CMT across a range of apparel and homewares products and can also provide additional pattern making, product development and textile design services.

Our online and bricks and mortar retail stores exclusively stock BIPOC makers and brands and is a training and community space for culturally diverse young people. We collaborate with brands and artists across a range of art forms and also create our own in-house label from upcycled and donated fabrics.

All profits from our retail and manufacturing social enterprises support our education programs for refugee and new migrant young people.
