The Hodgman Liberal Government’s long-term Plan for Tasmania includes growing our cultural and creative reputation so Tasmania becomes an even better place to live and work.
The Government’s Cultural Heritage Program will provide nearly $500,000 in 2017-18 for museums, art galleries and heritage organisations across the state, along with free advice from an expert ‘Roving Curator’.
As a Government we strongly support our cultural and creative industries and acknowledge the investment and jobs they create.
Successful organisations include:
• The Tasmanian Wool Centre - $29,800 and 10 days of Roving Curator time
• The Burnie City Council - $105,000 to support both the Burnie Regional Art Gallery and Burnie Regional Museum; and,
• The Maritime Museum of Tasmania - $70,000 to support the Maritime Heritage Co-ordinator position.
Additionally, the Lynne Stacpoole Caring for your Collection Program will provide a further $4,000 to four museums to purchase assets to assist with the preservation or display of their collection. This program is made possible by a donation by former Tasmanian Arts Advisory Board member, Lynne Stacpoole.
