Exploring the idea that Everything Starts with a Dream, meet six emerging artists from North West Tasmania, who are currently following their arts dreams, studying visual arts at the School of Creative Arts, University of Tasmania, Launceston.
They’ve come from very different backgrounds (and decades), and have vastly different motivations and aspirations about being there, but their paths have converged at university where they can get the qualifications, ideas and inspiration they need to help them on their journeys.
This exhibition is a sample of the things they’re been thinking about, ideas they’re expressing and media they’re interested in and experimenting with. It’s a 2017 snapshot across their lives where they meet through shared passions, interests and learning as they follow their dreams.
These people have vastly different stories that start at surprising points in time. We may feel like we know them (or someone like them), that’s what makes them so inspirational; ordinary people following their passions, diving deep into the pool of possibilities and changing their destinies.
