Over the past two decades, Ten Days has presented 10 Festivals encompassing more than 1200 individual events in over 140 locations around the state, engaging 1.5 million Tasmanians. We’re very proud of our history and excited by our future. Two things distinguish Ten Days on the Island – our support for, and investment in, new work by Tasmanian artists and our record of delivering real and rich cultural content to communities around regional Tasmania. Ten Days is honoured to have partnered with Tasmanian artists and arts organisations, encouraging and supporting them to take risks and create new work for our biennial Festival program and securing national investment in local work. We’re delighted to have played a role in sharing some of that work with the rest of the world! Since 2001, Ten Days has celebrated Tasmania’s unique identity and island culture and offered a platform on which to profile Tasmania’s innovative, creative and resourceful character.

Music Tasmania acknowledges Tasmanian Aboriginal people as the traditional owners of this island, lutruwita (Tasmania). We pay our respects to elders past and present and acknowledge traditional peoples' connection to country. We respect the traditions and customs of the Aboriginal people of lutruwita, who remain the custodians of these lands.
