A little bit of culture, a big taste of Tasmania!
Cross the road from the conference venue, and you arrive at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), for a catch up with your peers over a few drinks and nibbles.
The Museum will open 3 galleries for our private viewing:
ningina tunapri, ‘to give knowledge and understanding’. TMAG’s Tasmanian Aboriginal culture gallery explores the journey of Tasmanian Aboriginal people and is a celebration of all Tasmanian Aboriginal generations.
Tasmania: Earth and Life. Tasmania has a unique geological history and hosts an unusual complement of plants and animals, each with its own story to tell. This exhibition explores these fascinating species and environments through the objects found in the State Collection.
The Thylacine: Skinned, Stuffed, Pickled and Persecuted. The Tasmanian tiger, or thylacine, has come to symbolise all things Tasmanian, from cricket teams to beer. But as well as being a popular symbol, the story of the thylacine is also a powerful reminder of how easily a species can be lost. This gallery tells the story of the thylacine and its interactions with society through objects from the State Collection.
Is your partner coming to Hobart with you – this will be a great night for all, so consider bringing them along! Guest tickets $80
