About the Studios

Being an arts tenant at Burrinja is an opportunity to become part of a vibrant network of fellow artists in a creative atmosphere, at the region's cultural hub. Our aim is to create an inclusive, flexible and diverse group of studio spaces where artists can nurture and expand their practice.

Burrinja provides Artist’s Studios for arts practice and business from most disciplines. Arts tenants have 7 day a week access to their studios and a range of other facilities at Burrinja, including wet area, exhibition, display and workshop spaces, artists' common area and kitchen.

Studios become available from time to time, and prospective arts tenants may submit an expression of interest via a written application. Burrinja will evaluate studio applications from artists based on the selection criteria policy, and with regard to the mix of artists interested and spaces available.
