Art Competitions

Each year QVMAG celebrates three major artistic competitions for young people: Art Start, Art High and Artrage. 

Art Start is open to Primary aged students. 

Our competitions encourage young people to use a range of art mediums to explore assigned themes. 

Entries are displayed at the Art Gallery at Royal Park. 

Artrage exhibits works by Tasmanian students at college level. Held annually, the event regularly attracts vibrant, thought-provoking pieces by a new generation of creative professionals. 

Phenomena Factory

The Phenomena Factory at the Museum at Inveresk is an interactive and exciting science centre providing hands-on education for kids of all ages. 

Challenge yourself in the Perception Tunnel or test your reactions while you touch, switch, pull and crank your way around the Phenomena Factory, actively learning about science along the way.

Alice's Wonderland: a most curious adventure is on display in the Phenomena Factory during summer 2017-18. 

The Phenomena Factory is supported by Bell Bay Aluminium.
