Every part of Australia is, always was and always will be, Aboriginal land. As a community gathering-place, a festival of arts, cultural exchange and celebration and as a site for the sharing of ideas and stories, Ten Days on the Island pays respect to the palawa – original owners and cultural custodians - of all the lands and waters across lutruwita/Tasmania upon which our Festival takes place.

Tassie’s very own ARIA-winning songwriter Monique Brumby comes to munatrik/Stanley’s beautiful town hall.

Trailblazing musician Monique Brumby has had a 25-year career as a live performer, music producer and recording artist. The two-time ARIA award winning singer-songwriter has created a catalogue of songs characterised by emotional honesty, beauty and integrity. Returning to her home base of Tasmania in 2018, Monique has maintained a busy performance schedule, continuing to create rich, original material whilst contributing to the community as a passionate advocate for social equality and mentor for aspiring artists.

In 2020 Monique embarked on Closer to the Truth, a multi-platform collaboration with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra which saw the creation of a series of specially commissioned arrangements of selected repertoire spanning her career, including her hit single ‘The Change in Me’ as well as exciting new material. Monique worked with six acclaimed Australian composers to create new arrangements for this ground-breaking collaboration, which premieres in the Stanley Town Hall.
