Burrinja Climate Change Biennale

Launch ~ Sat 3 December @ 2pm | Burrinja

Burrinja Climate Change Biennale returns with a region wide program. Burrinja has partnered with Yarra Ranges Council, Your Library and the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum to create a program that spans the whole ranges and crosses over a range of art forms. Join us at Burrinja as we launch the program with sneak previews of each of the exhibitions & actions, an opportunity to explore Burrinja's Award Exhibition with works from 44 artists, as well as the Emerging artist take over in the aerie gallery.

From the scientific to the fantastic, the cultural to the creative, the Burrinja Climate Change Biennale (BCCB) brings together diverse voices, practices and perspectives to interrogate and speculate on the future we so desperately need. The BCCB offers both a reflective perspective and a beacon of hope. Whilst we cannot undo the past, as actively engaged creative citizens living within ecologies in crisis it is our responsibility to re-imagine a future that does no more harm.

Each of the exhibitions and events in the program highlights significant issues around the urgency and impact of the climate crisis.

Launch Event ~ Sat 3 December @ 2pm ~ RSVP HERE


The Burrinja Climate Change Biennale is delivered in partnership with Yarra Ranges Regional Museum, ngurrak barring/RidgeWalk, Yarra Ranges Council and Your Library.

burrinja presents


Sat 3 Dec, 2022 - 25 Feb, 2023 | Airlock - Burrinja Gallery

Paul E Mason’s exhibition, Climate Anxiety Ark, exploits the language of the museum through meticulously crafted sculptures that reference reliquaries, automatas and dioramas. These objects expose the museum as an apologist for colonialism, and its cloistered artefacts alternately as a source of unequivocal truth or frivolous, illusory spectacle. Interpretive and design tropes and famous museum objects are reimagined and reframed to expose the privileging of Western over Indigenous knowledge systems. Combining dissonant visual elements from the past and present, the artist connects the colonial legacy of dispossession and exploitation to the current reality of an unfolding climate disaster.

Shane Nicholson ~ Live in the Lyre

Fri 3 Feb @ 8.00pm | Lyre Room  POSTPONED

Shane Nicholson is a rare talent who has bridged the gap between alt-country and the mainstream. With three ARIA awards, fifteen Golden Guitars, and a new album taking out Album of the Year, Alt. Country Album of the Year, APRA Song of the Year and Single of the Year, Shane Nicholson’s creative hunger appears more present than ever.⁠

Seeing Nicholson live is to "experience songs that pay tribute to the unpredictability of human experience, with the ability to wrap up difficult subject matters with music of uplifting beauty and charm." Beat Magazine⁠

"Nicholson's is a uniquely compelling voice in Australian songwriting – it lives and breathes in the songsmith's singular melodies, crooked humour, and short, pithy lines gently delivered." Rolling Stone Magazine

Sadly, Shane Nicholson has found it necessary to postpone his Victorian tour. Shane is keen to take the stage in the Lyre Room and we will update this listing as soon as we have the date locked in.

Please note: Ticket holders have been contacted directly.

End of Winter

In search of cold weather...

Thu 30 Mar @ 7:30PM | Burrinja Theatre


Will climate change erase winter leaving it to exist only in fairy tales, paintings, and historical accounts? In hot, bushfire-prone Australia our winters are becoming warmer and shorter. The End of Winter is about loss and resilience. It’s about the places one can search for cold weather —places that can be reached via public transport and the imagination.  

This is a new work for the stage that speaks to our current climate crisis.  Written in the wake of the devastation of the 2019 bush fires it asks: What’s happening to winter?  

★★★★ “The End of Winter is often enlightening, often sobering, and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny. Recommended.” Diana Simmonds, Stage Noise

She embraces each song with empathy, courage interspersed with humour, emotions that reach way beyond the stage connecting with each and everyone in the audience.

While the comparisons have run the gamut from Holiday to Mathilde Santing to Janis Joplin, one thing is certain that Mary’s voice is her own.” The Observer (UK)

Soft VS Edgy | Natalie Wijeyeratne

15 Apr - 27 May | aerie gallery

Soft VS Edgy is a new collection of original acrylic paintings exploring the nature of  Passivity / Growth / Loud and Quiet Expression / Surrender / Directness / Starkness of reality / Sensuality; and the way these themes emerge both visually on the page and metaphorically in relationship to one's self and others.  Are these concepts mutually exclusive? Where do they overlap? How can we be both? In a time where vulnerability is encouraged, is it Edgy to be Soft? Or Soft to be Edgy? These are the themes Natalie invites you to explore when viewing her 2023 series. Soft VS Edgy is Natalie’s second solo exhibition.

Fri 12 May @ 8.00pm | Lyre Room

Award winning Australian vocalist Emma Pask has firmly established herself as one of this country's favourite voices in Jazz.

Her effortless honest stage presence combined with her powerful vocal ability, leaves audiences spellbound and inspired. Emma is sure to delight as she interweaves storytelling through timeless swinging jazz standards, upbeat Latin rhythms, tender ballads and of course some raucous blues.

While Emma’s voice and style are unique, and individually her own, her performances are reminiscent of the classic era of jazz, when swing was top of the charts. Her talent was first spotted by internationally renowned Jazz great James Morrison when she was just 16 years old. She joined his band as the lead vocalist at 16, and went on to spend 20 years touring the world with Morrison.

Fabric. Layerism. Collage. | Mark Ewenson

My work combines the classical with the contemporary, with influences of both masculine and feminine gaze of the female form within domestic, natural and ethereal environments. This exhibition showcases works made over the past several years including through the Covid lockdowns of 2020/21, and some dating back to the earlier stages of Fabric Layerism’.
