The Unconformity

Festivals and Celebrations

16 Oct 2020 to 18 Oct 2020

Over three days walk the landscape, meet the people. Feel your perceptions being challenged. And, find something of yourself, within a cultural frontier that exists on the edge, in wild western Tasmania.
The Unconformity is a biennial three-day festival of contemporary arts and cultural activities held in the industrial mining community of Queenstown — one of Tasmania’s most provocative locations.
Inspired by a rare geological feature and the non-conforming nature of its nearby community, The Unconformity is one of Australia’s most exciting site-specific contemporary art festivals.
Experience this community’s unmatched sense of place and unique creative vision on 16 to 18 October 2020.
