Tasmania’s creative arts and cultural producers have come together for Undisciplined which officially opened today.

Organised by Creative Island, the two-day summit brings those within the State’s creative arts and cultural industries together to discuss ideas and critically reflect on the sector.

Our cultural and creative industries are an important part of Tasmania’s social fabric – they help inspire, challenge and educate us.

Directly employing thousands of Tasmanians our cultural and creative industries also make an invaluable contribution to Tasmania’s economy.

In the lead up to the summit, Creative Island undertook a mapping study of the creative arts and cultural industries to better understand the issues it is facing.

Undisciplined received $60,000 as part of the Government’s election commitment to implement a creative industries strategy.

The strategy puts in place 26 actions including sector leadership, industry development and visitor economy, and is rolling out in consultation with the industry, the community and in partnership with Tasmanian Creative Industries.

The Hodgman Liberal Government has always been a big supporter of the creative arts and cultural industries, and we look forward to seeing the results of this summit.
Elise Archer, Minister for the Arts
