ArTELIER: Artists in Tasmania: Ecology of Learning, Intergenerational Exchange and Reflection

ArTELIER is a new project that invests in Tasmanian young people by empowering the artists who work with them.  ArTELIER will build the capacity of the Tasmanian arts ecology of artists, creative activists and educators who currently work, or wish to work, with children and families. This project has been assisted through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts.

ArTELIER has been developed by experienced practitioner artists in partnership with the Peter Underwood Centre, supported by Nayri Niara and Salamanca Arts Centre. This project is a Learning Exchange, so that artists share resources and learning to strengthen the sector’s practice and have a powerful impact on Tasmanian children’s creativity, learning and cultural citizenship.

12 core participating artists from across Tasmania will meet, face to face or via video-link, to co-design and deliver a series of eight Learning Exchange sessions.  Each session may involve an artist/provocateur, and an ‘Open Pedagogy’ session where additional arts educators are invited to broaden the discussion. The technology of the Peter Underwood Centre provides multiple online video links to interstate expert provocateurs and statewide participants, and production facilities to create online video resources for artists and teachers.
