ArTELIER partners

The program has three founding partners:

  • The Peter Underwood Centre is a major partner providing venue, technical support, strategic planning and will add an element to the program specifically for teachers across the State. The centre is based in Elizabeth Street in central Hobart and sits within the University of Tasmania.
    It’s work spans three pillars of action, each contributing to a vision where all young Tasmanians flourish through the transformative power of learning. Attached to the centre is the A Lab; an exploratory space combining new and traditional technologies to support creative learning. Simon Spain has had a relationship with The A Lab for over a year having written one of the key original scoping documents for its strategic rational and operational needs.
  • Nayri Niara is an organisation connecting Indigenous, earth-based wisdoms and emerging sustainable practices through projects and people. This collective of artists & Cultural ambassadors work across various fields, towards a common goal – co-creating a healthy future by utilizing new sustainable innovations whilst honouring and learning from previous cultures and custodians. Ruth Langford will be establishing key concepts and approaches in the first Learning Exchange – ideas that will be embedded throughout.
  • Salamanca Arts Centre will support to promotion of the EOI process and will also hold a one-day event in May 2019.


This project was assisted through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts.
