Place of Assembly
Schoolhouse Studios in association with Melbourne Festival presents Place of Assembly. An exhibition celebrating 120 years of assembly and learning, showcasing 11 guest artists in addition to 75 resident artists on the site of Abbortsford’s Schoolhouse Studios.

Two Bright Lakes DJs will also make an appearance with a selection of dance worth tunes to mix it up.
The exhibition will run from Wednesday 10 October to Saturday 27 October.
It is a free event therefore you have no reason not to join the celebration.
