The Creative Industries and Performing Arts Development (known as The Hedberg) will be a contemporary landmark building, co-located with and enhancing Hobart’s beloved Theatre Royal. It is one of Tasmania’s most ambitious arts projects. The Development will encompass the Theatre Royal, the University of Tasmania's Conservatorium of Music and the Creative Exchange Institute (CxI), a new research institute with a focus on performance, design and creativity. The project is being realised as part of, and will further contribute to Tasmania’s cultural and artistic resurgence.
The design will incorporate cutting-edge technologies and inviting public spaces to enhance Tasmania’s position as a leader in the creative, performing and digital arts. The precinct aspires to be a destination that delivers a vibrant and exciting place for a range of audiences - the general public, tourists, researchers, educators, students and audiences.
