Why study art, music, theatre?

Tasmania might be small, but it’s got an arts scene that other places can only dream of.

And when you study with the University of Tasmania, you’ll become a part of our bustling island’s creative revolution.

It’s a chance to work with left-of-centre festivals, world-class museums and orchestras, and bump shoulders with acclaimed international artists.

You’ll be guided and mentored by approachable teachers who happen to be some of Tasmania’s most exceptional creative talent.

You’ll get to experiment and collaborate with students from all walks of life. And it all happens inside inspiring campuses made for making.

Most importantly, you’ll graduate with the practice-based skills and creativity you need to make a future that matters.

Dark Mofo’s Panopticon features 20+ installations by Art, Music and Theatre students. It takes place at our Hunter Street campus (adjacent to the festival’s Dark Park). Will we be watching you next year at Dark Mofo?
