The University of Tasmania, along with the Commonwealth and Tasmanian governments, is embarking on a project which will underpin a vision for the state as a leader in the digital, creative and performing arts. This vision includes the construction of a major creative industries and performing arts development, 'The Hedberg', adjoining Hobart's historic Theatre Royal on the 'Wapping 4' site.
The $96 million project will comprise improvements to the Theatre Royal, and a new University Conservatorium of Music; it will include new performance venues, public spaces and an international research institute.
The project is due to be completed in 2020.
