Digital Odyssey headed for Hobart in early 2011

Yesterday Ten Days on the Island and Hobart City Council officially announced at a formal event, their partnership to bring Digital Odyssey to Hobart next year as part of Ten Days on the Island, Tasmania’s premier cultural event. This is an excellent outcome for Digital Odyssey, and a fantastic addition to the Ten Days program in the beautiful city of Hobart.

Craig will be in residency in Hobart from 28 February – 3 April 2011, working with the local community and presenting public programs and projection artworks responsive to the town and its stories.

Congratulations to Ten Days and the Hobart City Council on yesterday’s announcement and launch – the MCA looks forward to working with our partners in Tasmania on Digital Odyssey early next year!
