Victoria and Simon have taken up interesting opportunities in the last month. Victoria has become a judge on the 2017 Tasmanian Premier’s Literary Prize for the Tasmanian Book award and also the Margaret Scott Prize. This means reading a lot of books in the coming months! Meanwhile Simon has been appointed to the Tasmanian Arts Advisory Board and is now Chair the Cultural Heritage Panel for Arts Tasmania. This board works with the Arts Tasmania Director and staff to advise on policy to the Minister for the Arts in Tasmania.
