stART today for Tasmania’s creative tomorrow
“stART is an exciting program for children and families led by a newly formed group (ArTELIER) of multidisciplinary artists from across Tasmania who specialise in working with intergeneration groups. ArTELIER provides a new learning ecology where specialist artists are committed to exploring new ways of working with children and adults together.”
– Simon Spain, Co-Director ArTELIER
stART is a program of artist lead encounters connecting children, families, and young people. The stART program has been specifically designed for both children and their parent/s or guardian/s wanting to participate together in Tasmanian artist led experiences.
The launch of the program at the start of 2019 initiated next level creative interaction with workshops carefully designed for two learning groups aged 0-5 years and 6-12 years, accompanied by and learning with their carers in each session.
This SPRING, Salamanca Arts Centre is proud to present another series of workshops for the 0-5 years age group, every second Tuesday (not inclusive of school holidays) from Tuesday 10 September to Tuesday 10 December. Parental attendance is essential.
Each session is $10 + Booking Fee, per family (up to 3 children & 2 Adults per registration). This covers the cost of all materials, our spaces and supports or wonderful artist facilitators.
All workshops are held at Salamanca Arts Centre, 77 Salamanca Place, Hobart.
The Tasmanian artists involved in this series of workshops include: Sheree Martin, Adelaide Okenyo, Cath Morse, Bella Young, Simon Lovegrove, Tanya Maxwell, Kirsty Grierson, Joel Roberts, Leigh Tesch and Bec Stevens.

ArTELIER is an initiative that invests in Tasmanian young people by empowering the artists who work with them. ArTELIER addresses a proven demand to strengthen professional support structures for artists committed to creating work with, by and for the Tasmanian community, primarily children, young people and their families. The trial model was co-designed with 28 cross-disciplinary Tasmanian artists in 2018 to build a network of professional inquiry across the State.
