Steampunk Tasmania Festival 2017
Steampunk is inherently quirky and slightly eccentric in a fascinating, intellectual and refined way! Steampunk Tasmania Festival 2017 is a celebration of this genre.
Steampunk, a retro futuristic nature combines 'Victoriana' Victorian era heritage, with mechanisation, invention, art, literature and photography. The activities, music, exhibitions, displays and workshops are authentic and reflect the playfulness and uniqueness of the genre.
George Town's culture is synergistic with the essence of steampunk. George Town has a European maritime history dating back to Victorian times which is proudly celebrated through historic sites and commemorative exhibitions. George Town is also the largest heavy industry precinct in Tasmania, which will enable Steampunk Tasmania to be a celebration of the genre, music, exhibitions, displays and our own maritime history and unique light and heavy industry.
Steampunk Tasmania Festival aims to create a playful integration of George Town's seemingly disparate cultures of industry and heritage and will deliver a distinctive, out of this world steampunk experience!
