Arts and Public programs

The Cradle Coast campus presents a dynamic annual program of exhibitions and events which promote and foster culture, learning and creativity for our communities, students, staff and alumni.

Our Arts and Public Programs portfolio is governed by the Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Cradle Coast) and managed by the Arts and Public Programs Coordinator for Community Learning.


The University's Cradle Coast campus presents a diverse program of public exhibitions each year. The program aims to enhance learning and cultural experiences across the North-West and on campus.

Artist in Residence (AIR) Program

The University of Tasmania's Cradle Coast campus seeks to support educators, makers, artists, designers and researchers interested in exploring their interpretations and perspectives of Tasmania's North-West region.

Since its inception in 2011, the Cradle Coast campus Artist in Residence program (AIR) has offered financial support to local, interstate and international practitioners, working in a broad range of creative disciplines. We put our AIR program on hold in 2020 because of the global pandemic, and as we continue to navigate its impacts, in 2021 we have modified our residency to exclusively focus on Tasmanian applicants.

This diverse 2021 arts residency is open to practitioners from a broad range of disciplines, living and working in Tasmania, and for the first time, we are pleased to make this program available to current students and professional practitioners qualified by experience rather than formal qualifications.

To further support the University's aims to create cultural and educational value within our region, and to mark the opening of our new Cradle Coast campus at West Park, the University is pleased to offer a site-specific residency valued at $5,000 for a 2-week (14 day) project, based at the precinct:
