FESTIVAL HUB AT THE HEDBERG
THE FESTIVAL IGNITES THE SPACES IN BETWEEN EVENTS
Creative sparks fly when gathering places come alive for whole days and nights with interesting ideas and art, abuzz with people having a great time joining in lively discussions about what we’ve just seen or experienced.
In 2023 in Nipaluna/Hobart we’re partnering with our good friends from the Theatre Royal and the University of Tasmania to create Ten Days on the Island’s Festival Hub at The Hedberg. Together we’ll ensure that every space, every foyer and every moment is packed with cool and compelling experiences, welcoming hospitality, in parallel with mind-blowing performances throughout the Festival.
Ten Days’ Festival Hub is your go-to place to meet friends before or after a show, take in a panel discussion or keynote, meet the artists you’ve just seen onstage, grab a snack, coffee or cocktail in between shows, catch a post-show Q&A or listen to a band. You’re welcome to stay with us all day!

TEN DAYS @ QVMAG
NORTHERN LUTRUWITA/ TASMANIA’S PREMIER CULTURAL DESTINATION, EXPERIENCED IN A COMPLETELY NEW WAY
In 2023 Ten Days on the Island and QVMAG join forces to animate the Royal Park and Inveresk precincts in poetic, dynamic and thought-provoking ways. Join us for a long weekend of exhibitions, performances, discussions, music and activations across Launceston’s cultural hub. This Festival collaboration responds to QVMAG’s richly curated range of exhibitions. Visual art and photography collide pleasingly with digital music and acoustic performance from Baroque chamber music and traditional Persian sounds, to improvised contemporary soundscapes. Surprising and thought-provoking confluences continue with breathtaking and paradigm-shifting digital works expressing ancient stories of clashing cultures and concern for Earth’s endangered oceans. Experience the diverse and marvellous worlds of celebrated international and Tasmanian artists, up close and personal in and around the iconic galleries and spaces of Australia’s largest regional museum and art gallery.
