Schoolhouse Studios Inaugural Fundraiser

Mark it down in your calendar: this Friday evening Collingwood community Schoolhouse Studios will be launching their inaugural fundraising exhibition with an opening celebration at the studios starting from 7pm. A much-loved cornerstone of the artistic community, Schoolhouse exists to provide affordable and inclusive workspaces for emerging artists and creative businesses, to play, inspire and grow their creative practices. 

Friday evening festivities will include tunes spun by local DJs Sovereign Trax with Schoolhouse’s tiny in-house cafe, Tiggy (a favourite lunchspot of the Assemble crew!) offering up a deletable array of dinner delights for the peckish. With over thirty Melbourne-based contemporary artists donating work to the show, including painter and sculptor Esther Stewart, Laith McGregor, Rob McHaffie, Brendan Huntley and Elizabeth Barnett, there’ll be plenty to browse – and so many opportunities to help support Melbourne’s incredibly vibrant and diverse artistic community. Proceeds from the exhibition will go towards the costs of keeping Schoolhouse up and running.
