The Creative Showcase is an annual celebration of the creative talents of graduating students from across Yarra Ranges. It is an exciting chance to have your final artwork exhibited in a professional exhibition.

Show your artwork in a public gallery, work with professional gallery staff and have your work seen by hundreds of people over the exhibition period.

Hosted by Yarra Ranges Council's cultural venues, the exhibitions deliver a diverse and exciting collection of works by the region’s most inspiring emerging artists. The exhibition is professionally curated and participation is by application.

The Creative Showcase is presented in partnership with Burrinja.

Applications are open for the Creative Showcase! Please fill out your application before 22 November, 2021.

We can be flexible with the application process, if you prefer to talk through the application just let us know and we can contact you. We can discuss the program with you on the phone or by email – See contact details below for Toni Main or Emma Buckley.

The Creative Showcase will be held at The Memo, 235 Maroondah Highway, Healesville.
