Tourism opportunities in Tasmania have traditionally been focussed on the island's outstanding natural wilderness, yet it is a state that also has a significant arts and culture focus.
Richard Mulvaney will speak on
Tasmania's long tradition of cultural and built heritage, which is entwined as it should be with the arts. Our museums are playing an increasing role in developing our cultural identity and celebrating our diverse and creative peoples. MONA has led the way and created a paradigm shift in how we see our cultural institutions and their place in contemporary society.
Presented by the Humanities and Social Sciences Taster Lecture Series - Semester 2
