University of Tasmania 125th Anniversary Forum Series


Co-presented by Junction Arts Festival and the University of Tasmania

How culture and the arts contribute to a vibrant Northern Tasmania

Experiencing the City

Junction Arts Festival is pleased to co-present this forum as part of the University of Tasmanias 125 anniversary. The 125th Anniversary Northern Forum Series explores ideas of significance to Northern Tasmania, and in particular, Launceston.

With a consideration of ephemeral performance, community-engaged live arts practice, and site-specific works that respond directly to place, the forum explores connectivity, pedestrianisation and the changing ways that people think, move, connect and experience the city through performance and art.
