APPLICATIONS for 2023 will open in September 2022

The Dandenong Ranges Open Studios Program promotes the work of local artists and provides the public with an inside look at our artists' working studio environments.

 The desired outcomes of the program are to:

  •  Support emerging and established artists and arts businesses in the region

  •  Encourage creativity

  •  Connect the local and wider communities with the arts and artists

  •  Increased profile of artists within the region

  •  Increased economic activity for and viability of artists


Supported by Open Studios Partnership funding by the Yarra Ranges Council, the program is managed by Burrinja (Dandenong Ranges Community Cultural Centre). Group artist meetings are held to inform artists of planning and progress and to ensure everyone involved has the opportunity to participate and contribute to the success of Dandenong Ranges Open Studios.


Artists who have been involved in Open Studios previously should read through the application carefully as it has changed from past years. The program includes three categories under which to apply. You can apply to take part in Open Studios online. You can request an application form to be emailed to you, please contact Burrinja via email, openstudios@burrinja.org.au. Please note that the online form must be completed in a single session and cannot be completed in part, saved or edited.
