Burrinja Community Celebration

Our favourite gallery in the Dandenongs, Burrinja is holding their much anticipated opening of a new theatre and gallery spaces on Saturday 30 July.

Designed by Gregory Burgess Architects, the new 400 seat theatre will be used by regional schools, professional and community theatre, music groups and children's theatre.

Additionally, the Art of Place Garden, created in the grounds surrounding Burrinja is an Indigenous cultural and environmental place for learning, reflection, gathering, creativity and celebration of local Indigenous culture and country.

On Saturday 30 July, Burrinja will be holding a free celebration with performances and activities from local performers and artists of the Dandenong Ranges.

Burrinja is a community cultural centre that encompasses arts activities and events including an indigenous gallery, collection and cultural education, contemporary arts gallery, performing arts, art studios, live music, youth arts and a cafe.

Burrinja was awarded The Archival Survival Award for Small Museums, 2010 by Museums Australia (Vic), for its Exemplary Public Programs.
