Burrinja Climate Change Biennale 2022

3 Dec 2022 – 26 Feb 2023

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.

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.
