Tasmanian Disability Festival - Art Exhibition and Prize

December 6 – December 31

The Tasmanian Disability Festival Art Prize provides a state-wide platform for Tasmanian artists who live with disability to share their art. This prize aims to recognise the substantial artistic and creative talent within the disability sector while also providing a platform for sharing and connection.

The TDF Art prize is free to enter and is open to all people over the age of 18 living with disability who reside in Tasmania. All visual art mediums are welcomed. The TDF Art Prize will be curated by the Exhibition Coordinator & Collaborative Consultant for the art sector Patrick Sutczak, who will work with the installation team to curate the exhibition.

Finalists will be announced on Friday December 3 at the Tasmanian Disability Festival Gala Dinner and Awards

Up to 40 finalists will be chosen from all valid entries by the Exhibition Coordinator and Collaborative Consultant. 

Finalists will be on display at Northern Tasmania’s historic Woolmers Estate from 6th – 31st December.  An online portal will also be available over the duration of the viewing period. From these finalists, a winner will be determined for each of the below categories by a panel of three selected judges.

The Tasmanian Disability Festival has brought together a highly qualified panel of judges from across Tasmania to determine the category winners. The panel consists of:

•Joe Bugden: CEO, Salamanca Arts Centre,

•Kim Schneiders: Founding Director of Interweave Arts, and

•Birgitta Magnusson-Reid: Visual Arts Coordinator, Devonport Regional Gallery.

The theme for the 2021 event is “Resilience” 

For the inaugural Tasmanian Disability Festival Art Prize artists living with a disability are invited to enter a 2D, 3D, video or audio work that responds to the theme of Resilience. The exhibition theme can be interpreted in ways that could encompass strength, vulnerability, adaptability, inclusivity, empowerment, growth or identity. Entrants are encouraged to think broadly and creatively about what Resilience means to them and convey that through their chosen art medium.
