Extra details

Applications close Thursday 15 July 2021

The University of Tasmania recognises that the excursion cost of bus hire can be prohibitive, especially for those schools an hour or more from Hobart. UTAS is offering a financial subsidy to assist in the cost of bus travel for students to attend the exhibition at Hadley's Orient Hotel, Hobart.

There are four subsidies available, worth $300 each.

If your school would like to apply for the subsidy, please indicate in the tour booking form and complete the additional information requested.

Conditions of application:

  • Bus subsidy selection will be made by representatives from UTAS.
  • Preference will be given to schools of lower socio-economic status who have not yet had an art excursion in 2021.
  • We recommend teachers obtain a quote from a bus company before applying for this subsidy. Please note that this subsidy may not cover the full cost of the transportation. Schools will be required to meet any additional transportation costs.
  • If your application is successful you will need to book your own bus/es.
  • All decisions regarding the allocation of subsidies are final and no discussion will be entered into regarding those decisions.

School groups can book morning tea to follow the HAPH exhibition tour.

Fruit platters from $5 per child. Other options are available. Price on application.
