    EXHIBITION At the TMAG now: One Hell of an

    Inferno: the 1967 Tasmanian

    Bushfires but it closes soon - on

    Sunday 19th March. That means it's also your last chance to visit the

    Tasmania Fire Service Story Booth,

    located in the Central Gallery, to tell

    your story of Black Tuesday. Don't miss the moving and fascinating

    Exhibition, which shares the stories of

    many Tasmanians affected by the

    events of February 1967, and also leave your own memories of the day,

    which will become part of the 1967

    Bushfires Story Map. And if youre

    keen to get more involved with the Museum, why not join one of the

    TMAGs popular membership groups

    the Friends of TMAG or the

    TMAGgots and enjoy even more of what TMAG has to offer.

    DANGEROUS

    INTERSECTION Residents are advised to exercise due

    caution when approaching the

    intersect ion of Wellesley and Congress Streets, especially now that

    the summer sport season is in full

    swing at Wellesley Park. An urgent

    problem has arisen as vehicles are being parked right up to the corner to

    accommodate the renovat ions

    currently underway at 20 Congress

    Street. Visibility down Wellesley Street is now nil until your car (or

    your body!) is half way across the

    intersection. The HCC has been notified by the Association and

    suggestions made to trim vegetation

    on all corners. A more permanent

    Foothills Community Bank to

    Mt. Wellington. The project has a

    new name: Project. This includes West Hobart, Tolmans Hill, Mt

    Nelson, Ferntree, Ridgeway and

    Dynnyrne. Please pledge your

    support and encourage your friends and family to join you. For more

    information or to request a pledge

    A SOUTH HOBART NEWSLETTER complete. The beautiful historic building, that was the Macquarie

    Street State School, is now looking

    for tenants in the Arts and cultural

    development fields to become part of

    a dynamic community in this new

    Arts hub. A Commonwealth

    Government grant has been used to

    renovate this historic site, bringing it up to 21st Century standards - a

    dynamic new arts centre for South

    Hobart and, indeed, all of Hobart.

    The building has ample car parking, a hall that can be rented by the hour, a

    meeting room and various sized

    rooms in the main building available

    for three year leases. Expressions of interest must be submitted by 24th

    March, 2017. If you are interested,

    please organise a site visit and

    briefing by ringing Neil Cameron (Project Manager) on 0418 733 551.

    I LOVE HOBART TMAG is partnering with the University of Tasmania (UTAS) to

    present a special late night opening

    at the Museum on Thursday 2nd

    March, 2017. The Welcome to Hobart evening is designed for the

    whole community to welcome new

    international students to Hobart, as

    well as newcomers to the city, and introduce them to the cultural

    attributes of their new home. There

    will be a range of activities to enjoy

    including live music, gallery tours, games, the Hobart Human Library

    and, of course, the chance to enjoy

    some fantastic Tasmanian food and

    beverages. The event runs from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Entry is free, but

    please register your attendance at the

    Eventbrite page. [UTAS staff and

    students can also register for free transport from the Sandy Bay

    Campus and Melville Street

    accommodation.]
