Arts in Greater Dandenong

Arts Opportunities

The City of Greater Dandenong offers a range of opportunities for artists of all types living or working in the municipality. Whether emerging or professional there are many ways artists can be supported for work they create for our community.

The City of Greater Dandenong also provides opportunities for local community organisations with an arts, cultural development or heritage focus. We encourage the vital role they play in cultural richness of our community.



Opportunities for 2020 will be revealed soon.



HOME 2020 

Home is an exhibition for artists with an asylum seeker and refugee background. The project aims to recognise and nurture the talents of refugee and newly-arrived artists and provide them with opportunities to develop professional pathways in the creative arts sector.

The exhibition showcases artists as artists, rather than framing their art practice within the bounds of their refugee story. Their artwork may or may not speak about the refugee experience. Instead their works reflect their interests as artists.

Accepting entries: (Dates will be confirmed soon)
