Seeking Interest in Board Nominations – one vacancy Burrinja Cultural Centre

(Dandenong Ranges Community Cultural Centre inc.)

Burrinja cultural centre in the Dandenong Ranges is seeking expressions of interest from a person interested in becoming a Director on our volunteer Board of Management from November 2020.

Along with general board duties and focus, Burrinja’s Board are seeking nominations from persons with specialist and high level arts industry / sector knowledge.

Burrinja Cultural Centre is a not-for-profit arts organisation, incorporated in 1999 as the Dandenong Ranges Community Cultural Centre Inc. In 2015 it was endorsed by the ACNC as a registered Charity, and it has deductible gift recipient status Items 1 & 4.

The Centre encompasses arts activities and community cultural development, Indigenous collection and museum management, 400 seat theatre - performing arts, contemporary galleries, artist studios, live music, workshops and café.

The centre has recently completed a major $3m refurbishment of its visual arts spaces, including galleries and artist studios, along with its catering, hospitality and first floor multi-purpose space.

The centre marked its twentieth year celebration in 2018 with the commencement of a visioning process for the next 20 years – leveraging off the opportunity provided by the refurbishment, and reviewing its current strategic plan (2016-2020).

With a new executive structure in place, the completion of our major redevelopment, and a new vision, mission and strategic plan due for launch in March 2021, this is an exciting moment to join the Board of Management.
