here studio grew out of lots of little collaborations between friends, colleagues, and love in 2010.

‘here’ originated from the ‘here and now’ a theme for our first official collaboration together for Pecha Kucha ‘here’ Haiti / Melbourne. We wanted to bring it back to home and connect with the local. Your street, your neighbour, your Dad. The world is not just over there, it’s here.

We use art, design, research and action to generate community + public space.

It’s always hard to gather all the ingredients, but clearly Urban Village Melbourne Inc was one of our first and main testing grounds, in many ways here studio could be seen as new rebanding together from a big year with UVM in 2009. It is our network nature to gather around projects, which form and change us fundamentally – like Wrongtown, South Melbourne Commons, Hub Melbourne or even WELOVEPT, they made us and we appreciate each colour and scar they granted us.
