The Unconformity takes its name from the local rare geological formation, Haulage Unconformity, but it also embodies Queenstown’s reputation for being different. Taking inspiration from the landscape, organisers curate an arts festival that reflects the local community and conveys a special sense of place.
The biennial festival runs from 19-21 October and will feature a mix of local, national and international artists sharing their work in dance, visual art, music and theatre. This year sees the launch of the inaugural Artist Residency program. Artists will be based for 3 weeks in Queenstown embedding themselves in the community and the unique landscape. This also includes a dedicated Tasmanian Aboriginal Artist Residency, which this year will be taken up by playwright Nathan Maynard.
