The TMAGgots run quirky, unique & fun events that help us to experience the arts, history, culture, heritage and the sciences in new & interesting ways. We just do things differently and proudly declare ourselves "culture vultures". Check us out & come to an event sometime ..


What the ...?

The TMAGgots are a small not-for-profit volunteer-run community organisation with the sole aim of connecting people with the arts, culture, history, heritage and science through the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and other places. If you like things a little bit different, a little bit quirky, then you'll love what we do!

We hold regular events throughout the year, usually in Hobart and it's immediate surrounds, which are based on exhibitions or happenings at the TMAG, and events or activities of appeal elsewhere. Join us for some hearty cultural gluttony...

out for ...

Sorry guys, but our next cool event is fully subscribed & not able to accept any more RSVPs, watch out as we might need to run Into the Vaults #2 in 2016, as it's been so popular ..

Don't be too disappointed, as you only have to watch out for our excellent annual Life Drawing event in the Central Gallery on 19 November and our December end of year event, our next two events for 2015.

Thanks for all those that made it to our AGM and exclusive viewing of the City of Hobart Art Prize.  Do check it out at TMAG if you get the chance, its focus is ceramics and works on paper.

The outcome of the AGM was the appointment of Bridget Eltham (Secretary) Melanie Jovanovic (Treasurer) and Pete Smith (President), and we welcomed Amy and Teresa onto the Committee.

Congratulations guys and thanks so much to our Committee members past and present, for the great job !

What else have we done this year? (or what haven't we done!)

So far we have:

  • explored private boatsheds at Cornelian Bay;
  • been guided through the Patrick Hall exhibition by the artist himself;
  • sketched the wild and kooky of the TMAG collection;
  • seen what one artist can do with 43,000 pegs;
  • had a behind-the-scenes tour of Moonah Arts Centre (MAC);
  • quizzed ourselves silly at our Annual Quiz; and
  • learned to detect the BS* with Glow Girl and Scibabe (*bad science!).  

Don't forget to get in touch if you have a cool idea for event you'd like to see happen or (even better) help us make happen.  A brainstorm at our AGM gave us some brilliant ideas for 2016 !

Upcoming events – both ours and others – we think you might enjoy include:
