Tas taps Mofo for biz events
TASMANIAN winter festival Dark Mofo returns to Hobart today for three weeks of feasting, parades, and performances.
The “uniquely Tasmanian” event will also see several hundred keen swimmers jumping into the River Derwent to welcome the sunrise after the longest night at the annual Nude Solstice Swim.
Business Events Tasmania ceo Marnie Craig said the event was helping to “lift Tasmania’s appeal as a winter business destination”, with Hobart enjoying increased interest from groups planning their trips to coincide with the festival.
This year’s event will feature an artist being ‘buried’ in a shipping container under one of Hobart’s busiest streets, panel discussions about death, religion & war, as well as performances by comedian Tim Minchin.
