Tasmania is in a unique position. Due to its size, it is possible to get representatives from all of the major performing arts organisations, institutions and festivals, along with many of the independents across the state, in the same space. They can even fit on one stage.
Most know each other and many wear several hats as performers and producers, advocates and administrators. Some have lived and worked on the island for decades; others are new and keen to meet everyone and find out how the industry here ticks.
