Critical Culture is a time and place to get together and engage in structured critical response, learn about how and why to give and receive feedback with peers, and diversify critical perspectives on performing arts in Tasmania.

There’s a massive and ever increasing dearth of critical response to performing arts work across the country, in Tasmania, and here in Launceston, but critical response is worth a great deal to artists and audiences alike, providing growth for both, making connections between people and increasing empathy and communication that feeds a strong and exciting future for performing arts companies and indie production.

Critical Culture meet-ups operate sort of like a book club: guest speakers every now and then, with meets monthly, and several shows discussed which are chosen from professional theatre, dance, stand-up comedy, circus, burlesque, and other forms of performing arts in and around Launceston. At least 50% of shows will be produced in Tasmania, and between 2 and 8 shows will be on the table on the first Sunday of each month.

Keep an eye on their Facebook page or Website for updates.

Critical Culture is proudly presented by Salamanca Arts Centre, with support from Regional Arts Fund. Produced by Maeve Mhairi MacGregor and hosted by Theatre North in Launceston.
