Burrinja was about to relaunch with its exciting refurbishment when the COVID-19 epidemic thwarted those plans. We are exercising innovative ways to reconnect our community to Burrinja – our Reawakening!

For the immediate future, please help us to deliver a creative and full-of-fun campaign to mark our Reawakening. We are seeking gifts to support commissioning entertainer, soulplumber and connoisseur of fine words, Cameron Semmens to produce a performance poem to celebrate the Reawakening of Burrinja’s role as the leading community arts centre in the Dandenong Ranges.

Your gift will support the development of the performance poem and Cameron’s performance. It will be professionally filmed at various iconic locations around the Dandenong Ranges, enhanced with animation and edited into a 90-second film. A series of free public projection and screening events will take place in our neighbouring villages, shop fronts, markets, lanes, halls and schools. The public will be invited to join in the performance in various ways.

Burrinja has secured up to $4,475 in matched funds from Creative Partnerships Australia’s ACF Boost program to establish this project. However, these funds must be matched by May 31 to complete the project’s full funding. That is where your gift makes the difference to ensure the evolution and completion of this high visibility project where the results will be evident to you and the Burrinja community.

ACF Boost will match every gift dollar for dollar up to our target of $4,475 so your support, of whatever value, will be worth twice as much to Burrinja.

Look what your gifts can accomplish:
• $1000 supports the creation of one verse
• $500 supports the creation of an animation
• $200 supports the creation of a line of poetry
• $100 supports the delivery of a public screening
• $50 support the delivery of a public reading
• $20 supports the careful selection of a word in the poem.

We know you understand the value of your cultural centre & are keen to see it reawaken as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support.

Burrinja is a vibrant cultural hub for the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. Following a clear, creative and community-based vision for the region ‘Building Community through Arts’ we are passionately working to contribute to the cultural vibrancy of the region.

While encouraging the development of new, experiential and innovative arts practices, Burrinja provides continued support for existing art forms in the community.

The centre encompasses three gallery spaces, artists’ studios, a state-of-the-art 400-seat theatre, a multi-functional event space, kids ‘stay and play’ art activities, rehearsal, making and meeting spaces, art collection and an on-site cafe bar.

Currently Burrinja is undergoing a $3 million refurbishment of its foyer, gallery and cafe spaces. An increased number of artist studios and residency places will be at the centre of the redeveloped venue, to be opened in mid-2020.
