studioFive is building connections with the community at large. One of these initiatives is establishing an Artist in Residence program that connects artists and the community with the students and staff across the Melbourne Graduate School of Education. While still in the fledgling stage as a program, there have been a number of fruitful collaborations over the last two years.
