QUEENSTOWN HERITAGE & ARTS FESTIVAL 2014:
LAKE MARGARET POWER STATION CENTENARY
The Queenstown Heritage & Arts Festival is a biennial three-day festival that aims to be the most significant contemporary cultural programme in regional Tasmania. It presents confident, high-end cultural experiences that are accessible, engaging, and fundamentally tied to a sense of place.
Following on from the award-winning 2012 festival, the 2014 festival will be tied to the centenary of the Lake Margaret Power Station – the oldest operating hydro-electric power station in Australia and a site of high cultural and industrial significance to Tasmania. To facilitate this the overarching theme Power of Water will inform the programme, which will be held from 10–12 October 2014.
The festival seeks to connect new people with our community and challenge existing perceptions of Queenstown, providing leadership to inspire people with the abilities and wealth of regional Tasmanian communities.
