Burrinja Cultural Centre

Burrinja Theatre

Burrinja is a vibrant community cultural centre in the Dandenong Ranges with a clear, creative and community-based vision for the region: Building community through arts.

As a cultural hub for the Dandenong Ranges, Burrinja enables the development of new, experiential and distinctive arts practice, whilst providing continued support for existing art forms.

Each year the centre presents a diverse multi arts program of community events, exhibitions, workshops and performances to delight, inspire and enjoy. All happening in your local neighbourhood.

The centre offers gallery spaces, artists’ studios, a world-class collection of Indigenous and oceanic art, a 400 seat theatre, kids ‘stay and play’ art activities, rehearsal, making and meeting spaces and much, much more.

Please note: The cultural centre is a not-for-profit arts organisation and registered charity, incorporated in 1999. Burrinja is governed by an independent Board, which includes Yarra Ranges Council representation.
