Mining new cultural experiences at the edge of the world. The Unconformity is a contemporary arts festival that explores the paradoxes of Queenstown, a small mining community on Tasmania’s wild and mountainous West Coast.
The Unconformity has emerged from this uncompromising environment as a cultural organisation that is fundamentally of its place. Our unique proposition is to be a cultural conduit into western Tasmania—a place hard to get to and harder to engage—by mining a new cultural commodity with the spirit of independence, boldness, risk and adventure that is melded to our region’s DNA.
Working with a range of community, corporate, artistic and Government partners, we develop and deliver: The Unconformity biennial contemporary art festival; A range of arts-led cultural development, tourism and education projects that seek to redefine the future of our region.
