The very site of MACq 01 is infused with tales of hangings, love, whaling trade and licking flames. The characters of Tasmania have become our story. They inform the concept and design of MACq 01 and we’ll engage your every sense to encounter them. As curators of these stories, we invite you into the Tasmanian community both past and present. Encounter First Tasmanian warriors, convicts forced onto our shores, others arriving with flags, and those who walk the streets today. This is a journey of people, time and place.
