Burrinja Climate Change Biennale

Applications are now open for the Burrinja Climate Change Biennale $9,000 Acquisitive Art Award

Applications due Friday 29 September – APPLY NOW

Uniquely situated in the temperate rainforest micro-climate of the Dandenong Ranges on Melbourne’s eastern fringes, its location offers the perfect backdrop for local and global community knowledge networks to share, learn and expand through the Biennale’s wide-ranging public program and macro-themes.

At the centre of the Burrinja Climate Change Biennale is its Award Exhibition, which provides a space for artists to engage creatively and imaginatively with aspects of climate change. The exhibition invites and encourages the collaboration of science and arts, of critical thought and creative practise.

The award exhibition will be on display at Burrinja Gallery from 11 November 2017 to 11 February 2018. Three awards will be offered:

$7,500 Acquisitive Award
$1,000 Young Artist Award (artist under 26)
$500 People’s Choice Award

Global in nature, national in scope and local in action, the Burrinja Climate Change Biennale provides a platform for events addressing one of the most pressing topics of our time.

Stay tuned for more information about the exhibition and public program including the Climate Change Biennale Day of Action – Saturday, 11 November.
