ArTELIER: Artists in Tasmania: Ecology for Learning, Intergenerational Exchange and Reflection
ArTELIER builds the capacity of the Tasmanian arts ecology by
empowering artists who work with children and young people. ArTELIER began in 2018 and built a network of
26 cross-disciplinary Tasmanian artists, supporting quality arts practice with
children and young people across the state.
If you have an established arts practice that involves children and young people, and you are prepared to contribute to learning opportunities, and are open to ideas, sharing and developing your practice, you are invited to express an interest to join the 2019 ArTELIER group.
2019 ArTELIER Artists have opportunity to:
Participate in and contribute to regular Learning Exchanges:- day long learning experiences, co-designed and led by ArTELIER artists, with provocative presentations for interstate and local artists, practical sessions, critical inquiry discussion etc. You will be paid a stipend of $250;
Be part of a supportive network that advocates for professional, high quality and socially engaged arts practice for children and young people;
Contribute to or collaborate with others in artistic engagements or community projects working with children and young people in various locations around the state;
Participate in a “deep dive” retreat of intense learning and sharing of practice
Access to other professional development workshops and seminars
After graduating with a Bachelor of Visual Arts specialising in ceramics at the University of South Australia in 2017, Hannah Vorrath-Pajak is now in her second year of the Associate Training Program at JamFactory. Throughout her emerging practice, she has found a love of making both functional ware and exhibition pieces. Through this work she aims to explore research into the natural world and traditional pottery processes.
Raised in Arizona, Matthew has been fascinated by geology since a childhood. A recent graduate of the Masters program at Montana State University, Matthew’s primary focus is sourcing local clays and rocks for use as ceramic glaze materials. With a house and studio located in Minnesota, where he lives with his fiancée, he is deeply connected to the growing pottery scene there in the St. Croix River Valley. Matthew’s research into material literacy is evident in his utilitarian vessels, which can be seen on his website www.woodfirelust.com
It was effective at breaking down all of the steps involved in applying for funding…
I have done a couple of applications and need some help to improve and develop – this workshop has been invaluable for remedying this.
Thanks; new ideas, succinct doable steps, generous information of whats out there to support us…

Bec Stevens has been cataloguing and labelling the art book collection at 1450 South Arm Road. We intend to make some of the resources available for loan to ArTELIER artists and will bring small collections to future ArTELIER sessions. Its a growing collection, particularly of social practice/teaching artistry/community arts texts. The collection sits on the bookshelves in the big meeting room at the South end of the house.
15 ArTELIER artists will be heading down to Bruny Island for a three day retreat and connection to the Nayri Niara Festival in March. This will give this group an opportunity to share and develop their practice through interaction with a host of artists in the festival and help to drive the direction of the 2019 ArTELIER program.
Wednesday 5 February was the final session of the 2018 ArTELIER program. This eight session capacity building program for socially engaged artists wiorking with Intergenerational groups will continue into 2019 – see ArTELIER.
