Six organisations will deliver an exciting range of arts activities with grants totalling more than $100 000 through the 2018-19 Northern Tasmania Arts Organisations Initiative.

Among the successful recipients is Interweave Arts Association, a community arts organisation working with youth and people with a disability in and around Launceston, will receive support towards the development of a dynamic new dance and theatre work to be presented in 2019.

Other organisations supported by the initiative include Mudlark Theatre, a festival called PANAMA and the Ulverstone Repertory Theatre Company.

Several individual artists will also receive support for professional development and residencies across Tasmania, interstate and overseas, through Artsbridge, the Arts Tasmania Claudio Alcorso International Residency, and Tasmanian Residencies programs.

Hobart-based artist Glen Murray will receive the Arts Tasmania Claudio Alcorso International Residency grant to travel to South Africa to initiate a collaborative dance residency and develop new work.

Luke Conroy, a visual artist from Devonport, is one of eight recipients to receive support in the latest round of Artsbridge to travel interstate or overseas for exhibitions, residencies or professional development opportunities.

Six artists will receive funding through the Tasmanian Residencies program to undertake residencies a little closer to home. Recipients include collaborators Nadege Philippe-Janon and Maria Blackwell who will travel to Cockle Creek, and musician Rachel Meyers who will travel to Arthur River on the remote West Coast.
