mapali local international is a new GASP Art Project currently in development by 14 artists from across Australia.  The project is a major intercultural collaboration between seven lead Aboriginal and Muslim artists, mentoring a group of seven emerging Tasmanian artists from diverse backgrounds - all coming together through a series of residencies and workshops to develop a series of major new permanent public sculptures at GASP.

As part of this special SOCA Art Forum presentation, GASP will introduce all 14 artists, including presentations from the lead artist group and curators.

Arts Forum is a weekly series of free public lectures held at the School of Creative Arts, Hunter Street Campus, during the semester. The series provides a unique opportunity to hear local, national and international visiting artists, scholars and presenters from diverse sectors of the Creative Arts discuss their area of professional practice. All current students, prospective students, and members of the public are welcome.
