About us

Studio23 is a not-for-profit centre, providing creative, educational and social programs for people with diverse abilities in the Maleny area.

What are ‘diverse abilities’?

Our use of the phrase 'diverse abilities' is a means of using inclusive language to make all who attend our programs feel like an equal, regardless of their circumstances. Inclusive language seeks to avoid words and phrases that reflect negative stereotypes, patronise and incite prejudice or hateful attitudes.

Member-driven programs

Studio23 Maleny provides people with a disability and disadvantaged community members the opportunity to engage with their community, socialise and develop creative and practical skills. Please visit our Programs page for further information on how we provide flexible choices and safe spaces for our members.

At Studio23, we encourage our members to personalise their experience. This means members can use their time to engage in activities that suit them best, in a comfortable, supportive environment. Along the way, our highly-trained facilitators are available to provide guidance and mentorship.
