Global Studio (established 2005) is a place based action research program where international students, academics and professionals come together with local universities, local government , NGOs and CBOs to collaborate with disadvantaged communities.

GS grew out of the work of the UN Millennium Project Task Force on Improving the Lives of Slum Dwellers (2002-04) with founding partners University of Sydney, Columbia and Rome. Over the past three years (mainly) architects, planners, urban designer, landscape architects, film makers and industrial designers have worked with community groups in the Johannesburg township of Diepsloot.

The recently uploaded film, Diep Salute, profiles Diepsloot township hip hop artists, made with the aim of also promoting community development and job creation through the arts.
