The Unconformity

A contemporary arts festival that explores the paradoxes of Tasmania’s wild and mountainous West Coast.

About

Take one Tasmanian mining town, nestled into a rugged landscape shaped by volcanoes, geysers, earthquakes and meteorite strikes.

Then add immersive, experimental and inspirational art, in many different forms.

The result? The Unconformity – an award-winning contemporary arts festival that explores the paradoxes of Queenstown, on the state’s west coast.

Held every two years, The Unconformity festival celebrates the non-conforming nature of its local community.

Its impact, however, stretches much further than the biennial event alone.

Supported by Arts Tasmania, the Unconformity invests in regional projects within the tourism, arts, cultural development and education sectors in an effort to embed activities in and around Queenstown throughout the year.
