Ways of Knowing event series is a program of online and on-campus presentations delivered as part of the launch of the new University of Tasmania Library at Inveresk. For this award-winning building designed by John Wardle Architects, a series of new works were commissioned and installed alongside works from the University of Tasmania’s cultural collections, as well as temporary exhibitions. As a site of learning, the artworks works introduce different epistemologies and nudge us to ask: what are all the different ways of knowing around us? What can nature, our surrounding lands, and waterways teach us? How can we ask better questions, listen deeply, and be open to learning in more ways? Enabled by the Campus Transformation Project, programmed by the Library and Cultural Collections.
