Tasmania Performs is present at every level of the Tasmanian Performing arts sector.  We work with emerging independent artists to help increase their skills and sector awareness; we produce the work of these artists as well as that of more established artists and companies; we commission new works, we connect artists with national and international presenters; and where appropriate broker and manage the tours that result.

Tasmania Performs is an initiative of Arts Tasmania, developed in partnership with the Australia Council in 2006 and managed by one of Australia’s leading producing and touring organisations Performing Lines in Sydney. The Producer based in Tasmania is Annette Downs.
