‘There is No Place Like Home’ @Burnie Coastal Arts Group, Upper Gallery

May 3 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm


TATA ‘No Place Like Home’- Professional Development opportunity

If 2020 taught us anything it was that there really is no place like home. We were restricted from travelling and many of us spent more time at home than ever before. The effects of this become evident in classrooms and across the arts community; there is a noticeable emphasis upon place and home attuned curiosities, perspectives and practices. We are seeing students, artists and teachers paying closer attention to what it means to live a life in lutruwita / Tasmania.

We invite you to join us for three separate evenings of place-making in the north west, north and south of the state, where we will explore the ways artists, teachers and students actively contribute to this.

In collaboration with Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery (QVMAG) and Burnie Coastal Arts Group, TATA are offering three opportunities for art teachers to be part of these conversations in the south, north and north west.

Registration is essential to ensure compliance with COVID safety measures at these venues.

TATA members can attend these events for free. If you need to renew your membership, please head to TATA Membership prior to registering

Internationally renowned local artists Nerrisa Lea and Reg Lynch will speak about their exhibition, ‘Remember the Humanness’. Their work introduces audiences to two exciting art practices in equal parts by the skill and meticulous execution of Lea’s surreal paintings and the wry humour and sardonic view of Lynch’s world. Beverly McNamara and Alex Nichols who have worked for Disney will share how to make a living as an artist. Burnie Coastal art group and Artscape will share how teachers and students can interact with community art spaces. We will round out our evening with ACARA Arts Curriculum Specialist Robyn Carmody who will provide us with a visual art attuned update on the 2020 Australian Curriculum Review, with the draft of proposed revisions being open for public comment from 29th April – 8th July.
