The biennial festival celebrates Tasmania’s island culture and offers a platform on which to profile and promote Tasmania’s innovative, creative and resourceful character and unique cultural identity.

Since its beginnings in 2001, Ten Days on the Island has delighted and excited audiences across the state and showcased Tasmania as an island of innovation and artistic ability. It’s become a catalyst for community engagement and involvement throughout Tasmania.
