We have gone through some huge changes this year too and will continue to go through changes. Studio Artes has completed its transfer into the National Disability Insurance Scheme, this has led to changes in the way we bring in new members, the way we bring in income, the way we bring on staff, and the way we program. This new world brings its own challenges, we will continue to work on what the world looks like for Studio ARTES under an NDIS, and work with our members so that they get the best out of their plans.
